All vehicles (golf cart, modified lawn mower, Fisher-Price Jeeps, etc.) must meet Mutant Standards to be licensed for usage at Flipside! Here’s the link to the Mutant Vehicle Details to see if your vehicle meets those standards. Register your art car before the event, and we’ll let you know if your ideas are Mutant Vehicle worthy, before you spend your time, money, effort, etc. If it’s not 100% human powered, Register it.
Still here? Okay, uh, here’s a screenplay I’ve been working on.
Barbie Goes to Flipside, the Screenplay
INT. TOY STORE
The pinkest, most Barbie centric aisle in the toy store. Barbie is there, soaking wet, washing her car. Enter Ken, sauntering in a Ken-like fashion.
Hey, Barbie, whacha doing?
Breaking the cell membranes open to expose the DNA along with the cytoplasm. It’s like the first step in sequencing DNA.
It, uh, looks like you’re washing your car.
Nothing gets past you Ken, does it? I’m getting ready for Flipside. I’m bring my new art car this year.
Cool. Cool. It’s, uh, just a toy, though right?
It was a toy, once, Ken. But me and Skipper pulled her apart and upgraded her brushless motor, upgraded her battery pack to triple the horsepower, changed the wheels out to get better traction, and now I can almost fly.
That… doesn’t sound very safe, Barbie.
It’s not supposed to be safe, Ken. It’s supposed to be fun.
Lights fade on the toy aisle as Ken and Barbie freeze. An overhead spot light appears and Buzz Lightyear walks in from off screen.
Kids, I know it seems like Barbie is really cool and Ken is a kind of a stick in the mud, but, remember, all cars, even Barbie Dream Cars, need to be registered and inspected to ensure they meet safety and mutant vehicle standards at the DMV at Flipside.
INT. A MODERN HOUSE. BEDROOM
The master bedroom of a house with a king sized bed. A family sleep soundly in the bed. A small female child with curly hair sleeps between the two adults with her right leg shoved awkwardly into the back of the mother, who is wearing a dinosaur onesie. The child flails her left arm into the face of the father (Bustin), a middle aged man with short dark hair peeking out of the crumpled cowboy hat, and full shaggy beard.
(quietly to not wake anyone) Ooof. Oh, sweetie, when did you crawl in here?
What a weird dream. I should probably write that Flame article about modded toy cars at Flipside.
Lights fade in the bedroom as Bustin look around confused. An overhead spot light appears and Buzz Lightyear walks in from off screen.
But what Bustin didn’t know, is that he was still asleep. Or, perhaps, this is reality.
Yeah, I think we shouldn’t watch Toy Story for a bit.
For reals, though. If you are bringing any device that you plan to use to get around Flipside that isn’t human 100% powered, it needs to get inspected by the Department of Mutant Vehicles. Registering before the event allows us to get you important information about your specific Mutant Vehicle, and if you need to do anything extra to pass inspection (before you arrive and can’t do anything.)
