“A production that no one will ever accuse of exploring light and movement for their own sakes. With a calculated indifference to craft, Burns celebrates himself in a portrait of the artist as a post-conceptual composite of Alfred Jarry and Ralph Nader. WHY CARS? details Burns’ strenuously bizarre campaign to establish pedestrian crosswalks in his Australian hometown, then follows the extension of his work across the globe to TriBeCa. […] [WHY CARS?] is an aggressive jumble of car wrecks, TV (interviews), scenes from loft life, and some Chinese propaganda shot off of the screen at Film Forum.” –J. Hoberman, VILLAGE VOICE

Among some of the more notable moments were Car Skittles; a stunt where the guests had to drive on to the back of a moving lorry, before letting them all drive a Ferrari – with a bathtub of water attached to the back which they were not allowed to spill. They were asked to race in a variety of motor-esque machines, from the aforementioned armchairs to Formula 1 cars. The final round of each show, between the two top-ranking guests, features the use of the car cannon in attempts to hit various things. The show originated as a one-off special of the popular BBC Two show, Top Gear, and was produced, as were a number of other television specials, in aid of charity Comic Relief for Sport Relief in 2004. It was later turned into a series, presented by Dougie Anderson.
