Description 40-44-PG

The Volkswagen Beetle is riding in circles without a driver. The steering wheel has been tied down with a rope. A brick is weighing down the pedal. A blindfolded man is walking around trying to dodge the car. This is one of the rituals which the artist and his twin brother Bart used to perform out of boredom. They saw it as their form of train surfing or Russian roulette. The film’s title is the license number of Bart’s car.
