    Well according to the reporter guy there's a LOT more than just this down there. How about those guys coming back and erasing the evidence and leaving that note though....THAT'S ballsy.

  13. +1. Thankfully less Scott Weiland. Why does Brisbane have nothing like that? :mad: What the hell did they do with the convicts for so many years? Nothing of any worth, obviously. :spit:

    Now lets see, French cityside, French number plate, French traffic signs, French words written on the entrance of the sewers, catacombs with bones, ...
    To do it in France would cost:
    - airline tickets - but if you already perform there; or you can take a vacation while you're there
    - rent that car for the clip
    - actors, actresses payment
    - ask for permission
    - invite fans; if you set up a little concert, they'll even pay...

    to do this in Hollywood you would have all these plus you would have to build the entire mock-up tunnels, sewers, catacombs, fake-French cityside, etc, which all adds up to an amount way-way more.

    But, of course, it was done in a Holywood basement, as you say :eyebrow: ;) :p :D

    BTW space is made in a Hollywood basement, at least according to Anthony Kiedis :p
     
  18. Look it up - it was made in Hollywood and the car scenes were shot in Prague. The model can't drive a manual so a stunt driver drove on the LHS. I kid you not. I was watching a special on it just today.
