It's Official - Drifting is now this Generation's Roller Disco
Remember when drifting was edgy and cool? Not anymore, it is now officially the Roller Boogie pastime and spectator sport of the 2010 era. This childs toy, sold by Razor - yes, the scooter company - attempts to mimic a real drift car but add the ability to do "awesome" stunts and "far out" tricks.
The next step is for Formula Drift attendees to wear crazy costumes or exceptionally revealling.. uh oh, STEP ONE IS COMPLETE!! The next step is someone will suggest drifting be in the Olympics and then a network TV special hosted by Mario Lopez or Ryan Seacrest. My gut says it will be ABC b/c they want to prove they're not just for old people - cuz that's whack...., yo!
Don't get me wrong, the Razor Ground Force Drifter is cool and all - it has an electric motor and slick tires in the rear plus a hand brake. Sure, it's cool but so was Roller Boogie. At least that's what Pam Dawber told me while wearing a satin jacket, satin shorts and knee high tube socks.
