The spirited Red Green, handyman and proud member of the Possum Lodge in frozen Canada, presents an hour's worth of some of the strangest automotive advice ever put on video. Green, his impossibly nerdy nephew Harold, and other characters from CBC's Red Green Show (which appears in America on PBS) present this tribute to the automobile in their lovably wacky style, which consists of loopy humor and jokes so utterly awful that they're brilliant. Utilizing his old standby, duct tape, Red Green begins by making a zamboni (a hockey arena ice-treating machine) out of a Chrysler K-car, and his awesome (or is it awful?) handyman skills are put on display throughout the video. In one segment Red makes new tires out of PVC pipe and old shoes, shows off his prowess (or lack thereof) at filling a dent with body putty, and, in a bizarre finale, takes an old Trailways bus and creates a sports car, a very long sports car. If the gags are often horrendous, they are delivered in an infectiously understated manner, and those who appreciate folksy Canadian humor will no doubt find Red Green driving them to laughter. --Robert J. McNamaraFrom the Back Cover:
Most men can't remember where they were when they kissed a girl for the first time, or even what her name was. But ask them what they recall about the first car they drove, and they'll tell you the make, the model year, the engine size, and even the exact punishment they got for driving their friend's dad's car without permission and without a license. That's how men feel about cars. Sure, they're loud, they pollute, they break down as they get older, they cause accidents, but let's face it: They're a lot like us! It's why we feel comfortable around them. That's what this program is all about - men getting close to their cars. Call it a celebration or call it a love story. Whatever you do, make sure you buy lots of copies. There's a new pickup I've had my eye on, and they don't give those things away! Red
