…SKAGGS shot a lot of water?

Water Bottles

A TOTO HET toilet can save up to 24,655 gallons of water per year, but how do you show that visually so that you can truly grasp what a number like that means?

That’s the question that SKAGGS faced for their latest photo shoot, and the answer involved “2 months of planning, 1 trip from El Paso to Dallas and back, 1,000 – 5 gallon water bottles, 3 trucks, 2 tractors, 1 buggy and a whole lot of man (and woman) power”.

…Your news van is slow?

Two news vans arrived at the same local drag strip in El Paso, Texas at the same time to cover a death at the strip due to legal drag racing, and then proceeded to do the obvious thing: Race their fully loaded news vans against each other.

Thankfully, no one is getting fired because of this stunt (since I think it’s awesome) but “disciplinary” action will be taken.

Remember: If you’re going to race your news van against the rival’s news van, make sure you ask the crowd not to put the video up onto YouTube first.
