Last year, we would occasionally spend some of our Friday afternoons writing up unusual things we found in the ethers of social media under the tag The 150th Wing of the Internet. I thought of resurrecting that tradition today, when someone sent me a link to the Facebook page N I G H T D R I V E R ナイトコール, which posts lots of GIFs, illustrations, and photos of cars driving through cities at night. Some of them have a retro-futuristic cyberpunk vibe, or capture candid moments of traffic from cities around the world. It’s a notable example of hyper-specific Tumblr-style curating migrating to other social networks.
For the ultimate highspeed-car-chase-from-the-comfort-of-your-home viewing experience, I recommend scrolling through the page while listening to this song.
