We were Team Grease Lightning, a bunch of greasers who piloted a 30 ft. Cheesesteak complete with P-40 Mustang paint job. Even though we had to perform a 30 second skit then jump off a pier into the Deleware river in front of 85,000 spectators, the hardest part was actually getting 5 guys to get their shit together and build the craft itself in our tiny ass basement in South Philly.
With the help of a lot of friends (and a lot of booze), we managed to pull it off despite hurricane force winds nearly canceling the event entirely. Here's a video of our world record attempt............(for negative distance):
We come in at 2:15
