and their video seems to bee farked after only 30 hits
2003-02-02 12:40:51 PM  
I'm sure Bubb Rubb thinks that the world is laughing with him. However...
2003-02-02 12:45:20 PM  
Just do a search for "Bubb Rubb" on Google to witness the insanity...
2003-02-02 01:05:46 PM  
Woooooooo Woooooooo
2003-02-02 01:12:16 PM  
How these god damned whistles are legal is beyond me.
Why the hell would you want this stupid thing is also beyond me.
The morons that do this are the same a-holes that think huge subwoofers in their car make them cool.
I would really want to kill anyone that drove down my block with one of those things.

This guy is suing Bubb Rubb for "Woo Woo" infringement.

Lil Sis was too funny.
2003-02-02 03:56:25 PM  
It's an Oakland thing. No one in Oakland has a job, but there are plenty of cars, boomboxes, guns, and corner peeps with lots of bling-bling.
Nevermind, it's the same thing in any inner-city in the US.

Anyone else think the story reads like something from The Onion?

And how can these things not be bad for your engine performance... okay, maybe a bit more low-end torque, but anything that constricts the flow of your exhaust isn't the best idea...
2003-02-02 04:28:38 PM  
The music video from bubbrubb.isgreat.tv is hilarious.
2003-02-02 05:55:33 PM  
another chance to show off my super-riced out pc that I did myself...

YES that is a real Type R badge meant for a car and
NO I have no idea why my wife puts up with crap like this that I do with our money.
2003-02-02 05:56:59 PM  
I should add that I have an AMD 1.1 GHz Athlon, but with that badge, it runs as fast as dual 3 GHz P4s. As soon as my big-ass exhaust vent for the back comes in, I figure I'll be pushin 4, maybe 5 Gig.
2003-02-02 07:16:09 PM  
Gotta agree with B0rg9 on that one. It's a hoot!

Woo Woo!
2003-02-02 07:17:32 PM  
uuuuuuuuuuh hu
2003-02-02 07:19:20 PM  
This proves it:

There is no hope left for humanity. Take your cyanide pill now.
2003-02-02 07:19:34 PM  
People do the dumbest shiat to their rides because it's "cool" and the "new hotness" and whatever else the fark people say it is. fark that shiat. Performance is not what people want, they want a "good" looking car with nitrous. All bottle, no throttle.
2003-02-02 07:19:38 PM  
nothing shows your companion that you love them more than one of those articles of clothing.

Valentine Gifts Valentine's Day is February 14th. Are you ready?
2003-02-02 07:20:28 PM  
I guess this will make us forget the war
2003-02-02 07:22:32 PM  
The link to the video is screwed up here is the correct one.
2003-02-02 07:22:35 PM  
To be the man you got to beat the man. Whoo!
2003-02-02 07:22:52 PM  
Surely there is a noise restriction or disturbing the peace law that can be used to get these things off the street? Or I guess the next best thing would be a chisel or something.
2003-02-02 07:23:00 PM  
2003-02-02 07:23:09 PM  
Here in Britan, they call racing stripes "go faster stripes". I think it's hilarious.
2003-02-02 07:23:52 PM  
Unfetchable my ass. Replace all the '\' in the link on their page with '/'
2003-02-02 07:23:53 PM  
I live next to a hosptial in a city. if someone uses those here, I hope they get shot.
2003-02-02 07:24:42 PM  
Eh, Harleys are obnoxiously loud and we put up with them. What's the difference? Neither are "cool" at 5 am.
2003-02-02 07:24:54 PM  
I like bubb rubb's girlfriend. Strictly for decoration, ya know?
2003-02-02 07:25:48 PM  
FlyingLemur: you're my new hero, and your comment made me uncharacteristicly laugh out loud (LOL'Z).

Itz like an alarm clock.
2003-02-02 07:26:53 PM  
...and i was just talking about good ol' Bubb Rubb.
2003-02-02 07:27:18 PM  
I take back everything bad I said about the whistle tips.
I should not let them bother me.
I should allow them to serve as my new alarm clock because I should be cookin breffis or sumtin.
2003-02-02 07:27:20 PM  
It never ceases to amaze me what some idiots will do for attention.
2003-02-02 07:27:59 PM  
God - my only question is....

Why would anybody in their right mind do this?

people piss me off....
2003-02-02 07:28:11 PM  
That seems like the single most annoying car add-on on the planet.
2003-02-02 07:28:18 PM  
thats too funny. lil sis quote " we do it for deco-ration" haha like people can see in the tail pipe.
2003-02-02 07:28:38 PM  
It looks like the heat shield tiles have come off of your Type R in the back, might want to get that checked out before

Oops, wrong news item.

What is that in the middle drive bay?
2003-02-02 07:29:42 PM  
Lucky Oakland cops. Let the profiling begin!
2003-02-02 07:31:19 PM  
Check out the sound board. I can't wait for some of these prank phone calls to start coming out. Woo WOOOOO!
2003-02-02 07:31:19 PM  
[image from bubbrubb.isgreat.tv too old to be available]

It does.
2003-02-02 07:31:27 PM  
It's this. I have the same card. Pretty cool.
2003-02-02 07:31:57 PM  
This bears similarity to another obnoxious sound delivered by an obnoxious person...Woo Woo, Beep Beep... notice the similarity?
2003-02-02 07:33:25 PM  
Look at the end of the footage. Guy's driving like a maniac(wrong side of street), blows through a stop sign, and almost hits that car!

I say we take a lesson from Tommy Vicetti and take a bazooka to these whistler cars. After said car is blown up, you can declare Whoo Wooo!!
2003-02-02 07:33:45 PM  
The news channel is called "Kron". /Cue Beavis and Butthead style laughing.
2003-02-02 07:33:58 PM  
$50 says that the Oakland cops DO have the authority to crack down on these dumbasses. I think anything over 100db is fair game, as far as I can concern, but they're just playing helpless so that more noise ordinances & authority will be put into their hands. Exhaust noise has been a big issue in the last few years (at least in California), and the cops have been losing. They used to be able to write tickets if the exhaust was modified, then that was declared unfair because a tuned Honda with a modded exhaust can still be quieter than a stock Viper, so they made it 100db, which is really hard to prove when you're out in the field. They're just waiting for the voters to play into their hands, so they can screw a lot of people, not just the idiots with the whistles on their exhaust.
2003-02-02 07:34:50 PM  
fark Bubb Rubb
2003-02-02 07:34:56 PM
