Happy Zool minivan!

Near my home in London there are these people who paint up campers (minivans) with graffiti and rent them.

Imagine my surprise when I walked past this one:





Someone had an Amiga back then

I went to the website to see if you can choose your camper but it seems like not, but I bet if you write them and ask for it you can get it, haha.
I bet they'll be as surprised by such request as I was when seeing the van!

Nice idea though, but the man should learn to airbrushing.

That's pretty cool. It'd be good if they did a Turrican one.

Hmm I think I agree with Schlachtwerk, not sure if they are done on purpose like that. I've seen them all up close (I walk by their depot frequently) and they are not really great looking on short distance!

They are an Aussie company based out of Brisbane and where I live is a popular place for back packers just north of Brizzy. I used to see their vans around all the time, and honestly most of them looked like absolute crap close up and from a distance.

Oh come on don't tell me you don't appreciate the one that was on the news recently "inside every princess is a slut waiting to get out"...... Classy.


Some 12 yr old girl was on the news and reported it to the advertising standards Buearu i think they said. (Im not quite sure if its classed as advertising although).

Im in cairns so we have a million of them as all the backpackers hire them.

They got spanked by the ACCC a few times for not disclosing all fees upfront.

And as haps said the paintwork is crap on all of them...

First of many Zool posts to necrobump. Just thought this was amazing.


If you have the website of these people, would be fun to know. The only time I've seen something this awesome and not at a convention or as a professional promotion (like the Pikachu Volkswagon bug) was only one other time.


Was a big fan of the rock group of ASIA and I remember seeing parked in a driveway a van with the ASIA Egyptian looking eyes on the front hood.



Loved this post!
