Plug In Day | Funeral Procession for the Oil Industry

Although we certainly didn’t arrive early enough to be at the front of this joyous funeral procession, I made my way to the front to see the Fisker Karma in action. The fisheye lens of my GoPro does not do this car justice. But you’ve already seen better pictures. What was really interesting was the sound. It was very spacey-wacey. (credit Dr. Who with that one)

I chose to not add music to this video because The Silence is what’s really interesting. Granted, not much noise comes through the waterproof housing of the GoPro, but still, the silence was indeed deafening. I stopped to ride with my friends, but the parade continued on, there were at least 20 more cars behind us.

Read more about the event, and see video interviews with EV industry luminaries here.

Continue the celebration by heading to a theater near you to see Revenge of the Electric Car, opening this weekend.
