    Car guy here and big fan. I love seeing different things done to cars and this is by far one of the more outstanding things I've seen. Kudos, I love it.

    This looks freaking awesome, you know that the next step is to make the interior cel shaded as well right?

    Somebody needs to do this with a Toyota Sprinter Trueno AE86. I was also surprised nobody ever did a cel shaded car until now. The Initial D fandom produced a lot of real life copies of the White Ghost of Akina but nothing like this....

    I love that Burnie did this, such an awesome idea and it really marks that car to it's owner and being really unique. Well deserved again Burnie. :)

    Burnie is a hero to me for doing this. 


    It makes me just want to do this for my car in the future, one more goal to achieve in life!

    Marcus is like a straight up wizard. Everytime someone comes up to him to ask something ridiculous and if it can be done, almost everytime I expect him to be like "Are you serious?" or "What are you, crazy?". Nope. He just goes, of course it can be done.

    Really like it. Not surprised to hear the graphics guy had a hard time understanding the concept. Now hopefully I can sell my boss on the idea more.

    I'm sorry, I do not see the intended optical illusion, it just looks a car with a few lines on the side

    Why do I feel like showing off this car is the sole reason the vlog went public? Not that that's a bad thing - it should absolutely be shown off - but something's a little rotten in the state of Denmark lol.

    It does look really cool, and definitely sticks out a lot, but I think my brain may be broken because I don't really get a "2D" feel from looking at it like they kept saying. Maybe I've just played so many video games that my brain can't differentiate the separate dimensions in terms of illusions when they are placed side by side?

      Probably because when people think "cartoon" and "yellow" even Barb thought of the Simpsons first.

    The only way this could be done better in this style is if it was neon burn out the retinas lime green...but I am biased as that's my favorite color. Lol

    I don't know why but the illusion just doesn't work for me. I think the car looks bad ass, but I can't see it in a 2D way.

      I can sort of see it, but I'm sure the effect is more pronounced in person.

    I know we've seen Marcus before, but something about his current hair + glasses really makes him look vaguely like Alan Tudyk.

  • peckpogydah Peckpogydah

    I'm not seeing the 2d part they are talking about. You can very clearly see that the car is wider @ the bottom then @ the top from a side picture. Also, what are the black marks on the fenders? They look like he hit something.


    Over all I love it though. As someone who drives a 98 Camry I love the idea of having an unique car.

    Marcus has gotta be one of the best behind the camera hires that Burnie and Matt made. The podcast sets and the little projects that he's always on are amazing. They've really given Roosterteeth a unique style with their productions and I'm always wanting to see what he's done next!

    "Sure, I may be a creator of a fairly well-known internet/production company, a former contestant on The Amazing Race, and an actor, but how can I, Burnie Burns, make myself more stalk-able, when people already know many details of my personal life (including, but not limited to: the city I live in and the address of my workplace)? Ah, yes. Cartoon car. Wait, wait...not just a cartoon car. Bright yellow cartoon car. Nailed it."

    Nonetheless, totally dig the car. Worth it? Probably.

    I saw the pics on twitter and thought "This is Burnie's big surprise?  Big whoop, he painted his car yellow."  This video does it WAAAY more justice.  Came out looking pretty sweet.


    Also, didn't realize the Tesla's door handles were retractable.  Pretty cool feature for aerodynamics.
