A high-tech billionaire bought land on the outskirts of town and built a campus for his burgeoning startup.
He preserved the existing drive-in theater, and whimsically architected buildings around it in the likeness of consumer electronic devices.
His highly caffeinated workers were to unwind with classic movies after intense bouts of ping-pong, video games, and coding.
The theater would also be made available to the townspeople (at a low ticket price), to give back to the community, and for authentic local color.
On a Tuesday evening, some yayhoos get an early start: in, on, and around a beat-up ’57 Ford Styleside pickup.
Second arrival: a C++ programmer in his immaculately restored ’85 Dodge Daytona. He positions for the optimal view of the screen.
But now coming through the gate: that show-offy VP of something or other with the prime parking slot he’s so proud of. A real TPS report kind of guy.
Can you believe this jerk paid someone to build him an actual-size replica of Speed Racer’s 2000 “Snake Oiler” car?
Of course he takes up two parking places, positioning for the best view of him and his car
Loud hee-hawing. The denizens of the pickup feeling no pain: their “ailments” now being treated with medical marijuana.
OMG THE SHORT SUBJECT IS A BUNCH OF THE EXEC’S PERSONAL CAT VIDEOS!!!
“Speed Racer” played the same ones at the last big-wig company meeting, and made out like they taught some stupid lesson involving cat-herding.
Finally, the movie has started, but the Daytona drives out in disgust.
Proved to be a poor turnout that evening.
The Speed Racer exec decides it isn’t worth hanging around to impress the local malletheads.
The movie eventually ends with a bang, but the pickup party takes little notice.
