Mutant Vehicle Intent Why are you creating this vehicle and bringing it to Burning Man? What experience are you intending to create for people? What do you want to share with the community by bringing this Mutant Vehicle to Burning Man?

“I love the silly and ridiculous and thought a big whoppee cushion farting along the playa would bring a smile to people’s faces. That and my playa name is Shitfinger so thought it only appropriate I drive a whoppee cushion around. There’s enough art cars it’s time for the FartCar!”
