Fast & Furious RC

With the untimely death of star Paul Walker, the makers of the latest instalment of the ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise turned to the late actor’s brothers to fill in so they could finish the film. But one ingenious group of fans have a far, far better solution – do away with all the actors entirely and just have one big car chase. Oh, and also just use radio-controlled cars!

I believe I can fly…
