Commercial video that shows girls dancing on top of a Self-Propelled Sprayer makes success in Brazil

Stara, a brazilian agricultural implements and machinery factory produced this very interesting videoclip from its last self-propelled sprayer, called “Imperador”.

…a funny fact is that Stara’s factory is located in a city with one of the weirdest names in Brazil, it is called “Não-Me-Toque”, that in english literally means “Don’t-Touch-Me”.

Some twitter pearls of wisdom:
“beats a free hat”
” I’m opening Iowa distributor store deal”
“Think someone should tell John Deere that they need to up their game on their sprayer advertising.”
“who cares what fields looks like if they are riding along…. Hell who cares if we r even spraying”
“Here in ‘Merica we’d have big pie eatin wimin fighting over a chikin wing under the training seat.”
“well I’m screwed, I don’t need an 90 foot boom for 10 acres of pumpkins”

Farmland – a documentary film

James Moll, the Academy-Emmy-Grammy Award winner documentary maker, is filming and close to release (March, 2014) a movie about farmers and ranchers.
He has previously directed and produced many successful pieces, including some co-works with Steven Spielberg and Matt Damon (check his bio), so probably this will be a good movie.

Take a moment to view this trailer.
