Someone needs to remake this 1970s video in 2000+ NYC.
The video was made in 1976 by Claude Lelouch, using a video camera mounted to his car. The video itself was presented without much information at the time and became highly speculated upon. Some say he was arrested when it was first shown, and there was considerable speculation about the car driven for this one-take shoot. (Claude apparently claimed it was his own Mercedes-Benz 450SEL 6.9, with the audio being dubbed over with the unmistakable roar of a Ferrari 275GTB.
A modern day reproduction of this video, created within NYC instead, would be utterly brilliant if you ask me. Anyone itching to make a name for themselves should hop on a project like this. We’ve seen everything extreme in NYC, from pantsless subway rides to building climbing and high wire antics between the trade center towers.
Who – who amongst you mere mortals desires to live on in infamy forever?
