Fast and The Furious Tokyo Drift

Verena Mei and Rhys Millen. Rhys is behind the wheels of many of the stunt cars in Tokyo Drift.

Fast and Furious Tokyo Drift: No matter how much they will rape the true roots of drifting, this movie will make an impact on this market. Now, every kid on the block will par lais vouz drifting. The last core movement of the import world will finally be on the map. Drifting is a rare example of an Engrish (Originally English word localized in Japan) word exported back to the US. A Japanese magazine editor first used the word drifting about 20 years ago after seeing a young kid from Nagano demolish his tires on the tracks. Every one thought he was a fool for wasting a good set of tires in a matter of minutes. The crazy kid was young Keiichi Tsuchiya. Watch for now the old man, Keiichi "Drift King" Tsuchiya in a cameo appearance in FF3 Tokyo Drift. Let's hope with the blessing from the real Drift King, you can't go that wrong. Even in Hollywood.
