Anthony Mackie Finds His Perfect Imperfect Ride in Twisted Metal
Anthony Mackie, best-known most recently for his part in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has an interesting take on car culture. He recently appeared in a new ad for the classic car-combat video game “Twisted Metal” where he reflects on car culture and his own favorite ride. “I think cars represent who you wanna be,” is how Mackie begins the piece. He goes on to describe his ”perfect imperfect ride,” which is a classic-meets-modern car he built himself with a few customized touches. He loves it because it’s something he created with his own hands.
The ad goes on to show Mackie driving around in his modified ride. He appears to be in an abandoned amusement park, driving precariously along the tracks of a wooden coaster, then beneath an old a roller coaster, before ending up on a makeshift racetrack. The ad certainly captures the spirit of Twisted Metal, with Mackie going on wild adventures in his own car.
The ad ends with a line that sums up Mackie’s attitude towards cars in a nutshell: “The only true ride is one you build yourself.” The video highlights the creative process that goes into building a ride, but also the importance of customizing it to make it truly your own. Mackie believes that building your own car is a creative process that is both rewarding and fulfilling.
Mackie’s ad for Twisted Metal helps to remind us of the power of car culture. Car culture is all about the stories of how people customize, enjoy, and embrace their rides. It also celebrates those who break away from the ordinary to create something unique and beautiful for themselves. Anthony Mackie captures this essence in his ad, demonstrating how owning the perfect imperfect ride can be a truly satisfying experience.
