what is this incredible music playing?
groovy, but i prefer guys doing double back flips while flying fifty feet in the air
Reminds me of the RCMP doing this on horse.
This is the video that made Kim Jong-Il stroke out.
Reminds me of the scene from Meet John Doe where the fascist industrialist shows off his private army of cops.
You can find it on YouTube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VvvB8jJqrLU – around the 5:00 mark.
That was completely and utterly fantastic. Thank you Boing Boing, you made my day.
Reminds me of tractor square dancing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6WxyzS0vCME
That made me smile for the first time in 3 days — thanks BoingBoing!
Reminds me of the BBCeffort, only this Italian one is much more impressive.
Triumph of the Wheel? Moda Italiana.
Hello Mr Pescovitz,
thanks for posting those beautiful sequences of sync moto-riding.
Only, I would like to be pedantic and point out that at 0:11 you can see some officials looking solemnly on, and the third from the left I believe is Giovanni Leone, at the time presidente della Repubblica. If correct, this would date the video between 1971 and 1978, Mr Leone’s period of office.
I dare say the Corazzieri guards (tall fellows with ornate uniforms, you can see one in the background at 0:11) confirm the presence of a president, and at 0:57 Mr Leone appears again right in the middle of the image, a focus of attention. Not as much as the riders anyway…
Ernesto Fontana (not anonymous-just too lazy to register right now)
Whadoyaknow. Cops are good for something after all.
