Saturday night of the Convention. The Finale is over. The ballroom is empty. Hotel staff is breaking down the stage. My 12-year-old daughter, so bored with the diecast geekdom, has resorted to counting the empty chairs with her older sister at home on FaceTime.
Me? I’m in a corner of the ballroom, packing up my things after filming a couple of preview videos with members of the Hot Wheels Design Team. It’s late, and we are all tired. We previewed a lot, but there was one board left. The one with 2019 Car Culture and other premium models on it. Jimmy from Marketing asked if I wanted to set up for a preview video. I didn’t, and I could tell by the looks of the other folks there that they were done too.
So a quick run with my camera, and some eavesdropping on the conversation we were having, add a little music, and here is the video. You can hear the voices of Designers Ryu and Dima (who did a preview with me that I will show soon) and Jimmy from Marketing. Oh, and mine too. Listen a couple of times, and you get some details on those models. Coming soon to Car Culture, Pop Culture, and RLC. Enjoy:
