From a weird-ass farm animal race, Persis, Joanna, Raven and Siti unexpectedly find themselves on a popular car show called ‘Hot Gear’, hosted by international celebrity and car photographer Kevin Ou as well as Singapore’s top online car reviewer, Jackie Prabhu from Clutched. However, while they’re in the hot seat, the Tirade crew realise they aren’t that car-savvy after all. Yikes!
BUCKLE UP AND LISTEN TO THE HOT GEAR EPISODE NOW. JUST HIT PLAY!
What happens when the farm-racing experts of Tomboy Tarts meets the swag-oozing hosts of a car review show that’s not quite Top Gear but has the same amounts of testosterone? A right-frigging disaster of comedic proportions, that’s what.
Inspired by the many episodes of Top Gear we’ve watched along the years and wanting to do a car-themed show, we decided that a session with Singapore top car online video reviewer, Jackie Prabhu, from Clutched Singapore and Kevin Ou, car fanatic and international celebrity photographer was the shot in the arm we needed.
However, Joanna, Siti, Raven and Persis quickly find out that animal drag racing isn’t the same as cars as Raven’s donkey starts acting like a nut-job on crack, galloping off into the sunset with Raven holding tight to its reins.
Luckily for her, Jackie and Kevin and their gleaming sports cars are there to save the day as they eventually find themselves in the hot seat on the Hot Gear car show. Be ready to put some pedal to the medal as we talk cars, tyres and brake fluid. Well, kind of.
IN THIS EPISODE, WE TALK ABOUT:
1. GUEST BIO – INTRODUCING OUR CAR-OBSESSED EXPERTS KEVIN AND JACKIE
The Tirade crew are busy trying to win top position at the local farm-animal drag racing competition when they unwittingly bump into their guests of the week, international celebrity and car photographer, Kevin Ou and Jackie Prabhu, presenter of Singapore’s only online video car review show, Clutched.
Kevin and Jackie share their passion for cars with the girls and some tips on how you can shop for the right car. They also share with us their favourite cars of the year (and ‘unfavourites’ too).
2. NEWS HIGHLIGHTS
Now c’mon folks! Who hasn’t yet heard about the most freakish invention of the last few years that is Google’s driverless car, eh? Google has got us all hyped and excited about these freaks of the road that now everyone’s looking forward to when they can own one. However, unlike the rest of the herd, Jackie isn’t buying into the hype. He still thinks driverless cars takes away the pleasure of just cruising the road to nowhere while Kevin likes that fact that we finally have a choice. As for the Tirade crew, we think that anything that is controlled by droids is bound to go south at some point. So what do YOU guys think? Are driverless cars going to be our mode of transport for the future? Comment below!
