It’s official: Best crash at Red Bull Soapbox Vancouver!

Sunday, September 14th, 2008

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!

Chicken Dance: You’re not sushi – you’re chicken! style

Here’s a video of our skit.  The person in the chicken costume is really givin’er.  The knife, on the other hand, is woefully uncoordinated 😉

Because we can’t get enough of those chicken crash pics

The chicken is approaching!

Here comes the crossover…

Uh-oh is right.  The bird flipped.

Road kill.

“Hey – are you guys alive in there?”

Yes! The Cluckmeister & Eggo will live to bok another day!

This production guy transported the road kill chicken to the soapbox graveyard.

The chicken and egg call a truce on the argument over which came first as they triumphantly walk across the finish line together.

Happier times with the Chicken

Friday, September 12th, 2008

The day before the soapbox derby, we loaded the chicken onto an F150 to get it to Kitsilano.

Here we are driving down Lougheed Highway with a giant chicken in the back.  Nothing out of the ordinary.

Drive slowly, Leonard!  The drumsticks are jiggling!

Deviled Egg, Knife, Fork & Chicken chill before the gates open to the public.

The chicken soapbox tries to relax before the big race (and subsequent crash).

What would a big event be without Hot Cops!  (It’s an Arrested Development joke – just watch the DVDs already!)  Our team traded stickers with this policeofficer.

This photo of Jensen Ackles is here to make me happy.  Unfortunately, I didn’t get to meet him. He was there to participate in a celebrity charity race with Jared Padalecki, both from the tv show Supernatural.

A tour of the soapbox chicken carnage

Notice the perfectly intact cart structure!  Only 1 bent wheel.  What fabulous construction, right guys?

Chicken Run & Chicken Crash!

Here it is…re-live the chicken crash!  Video courtesy of Dickson.

Now the crash in SLOW-MO!

We flipped the bird – but we’re OK!

If you saw our team race on Sunday, you saw THE CRASH OF THE EVENT. It’s an honour we’ll wear proudly only because our fearless pilots, Elizabeth & Jenny, emerged with nary a scratch. We’ll update this blog with more pics, videos and media hits soon.

If you have a video or photos of the crash and are willing to share with our team and on this blog, please contact us at and we’ll make it happen. Thank you!



It’s almost time! Mark your calendars/iPhones/Blackberries!
