Watch this short video of the Top 5 crashes at the Red Bull Soapbox Vancouver event.  Again, major props to Elizabeth & Jenny – if you gotta crash, do it in style!

So the *ahem* back-end of the chicken has been immortalized in this Red Bull video clip “Twas the night before soapbox”. It’s a video of set-up day. Watch for CHKN SASS! The video clip can also be viewed and downloaded from the Red Bull Soapbox site.

Chicken sightings in print media

See a picture of our “nasty spill” in the September 8, 2008 edition of 24 Hours.  Thanks to everyone who pointed this photo out to us!

See a picture of the chkn sass in the September 8, 2008 edition of the Sing Tao.  According to my Dad, the caption says something like “Home-made vehicles compete in a race down a slope”.  Probably sounds more poetic in Chinese.

Our chicken was so nice we made the Sing Tao twice!  The September 14, 2008 “Community Images” section has a sweet pic of our chicken soapbox.  According to my Dad, the caption says something like “Soapboxes show off wild, crazy & imaginative ideas.”  The red inner caption says “Tremendous creativity”.  We’ll take that 😉
