Meerkat - 2016-12-30 Pretty sure Super Dave is the Evel Knievel of Canada.
Bobonne - 2016-12-30 Super Dave is a comedian (and one I much loved watching on tv, growing up in Canada).
This guy was an actual daredevil doing the actual dumb stuff Super Dave parodied (though on a (usually) far smaller budget, what with most cars getting wrecked after between 1-3 jumps.
Bobonne - 2016-12-30 Also, five stars for a genuinely entertaining documentary exploring an act of insanity, acts of treachery, and tragedy all 'round.
Crab Mentality - 2016-12-30 Spoiler warning for something not mentioned in this doc.
Ken Carter died in 1983 when the rocket car he was driving overshot the landing ramp and landed on it's roof.
kamlem - 2016-12-30 Dupe but this amazing doco was not well received when I submitted it years ago.
This actually was aired on TV in Australia in the early 90s as a special presentation by a comedy program called "The Late Show". Consequently it is seared into the brains of many Australians around my age that had never seen anything like it before.
Oscar Wildcat - 2016-12-31 You should have titled it, "Imagine Trailer Park Boys done by Rob Reiner in conjunction with Werner Herzog".
