Drifting's been off the front pages for a while, the latest reports having more to do with turmoil than tire shredding. As with most things, though, just because it's not headlining doesn't mean it's disappeared. NOS energy drink sent one of our favorite filmic chroniclers, Will Roegge, across the country to survey the drifting world. The result is a mini-documentary called Keep Drifting Fun.

And we do mean the word "documentary" – it's 30 minutes long. Although there's plenty of smoke and wall-kissing, its length gives us an opportunity to hear from drifters and organizers to find out what's behind the sport, as well as their own motivations, where drifters come from and why they drift. It looks at venues beyond the track, like tree-lined back roads in Houston and alleys in late-night El Paso, and we dig that it starts off with the protagonists themselves admitting, "Drifitng is so stupid," "It's pointless," and "When you boil it all down it's pretty silly."

The movie, on the other hand, isn't. Scroll down to check it out.

      Some of the drifters in the video look like they should be going to a Harley Davidson bike meet.

      Great video! Even got to see some familiar cars I've seen around Chicago!

      So even the moronic d-bags admit they're moronic d-bags.

      Seen this last night. Was the best 30minutes of my life this week.

      Couldn't think of a better way to spend 30 mins. That was great!

      I started cracking up when I saw that green BMW on the backroads of Texas ripping it up. Great movie.

      "it's the stupidest thing you could do in a car...ever" Three cheers for that. Hey, for now it's a free country, have at it. It's just not my cup of energy. I'd prefer to go around a corner like I'm on rails unless there is dirt or snow involved.

      I'd still rather watch NASCAR over drifting and I can't even stand to watch NASCAR unless there are big crashes.

      Best way to take up 30mins of the working day. Will be a test of will power to keep traction on the drive home later though... :P

        It's just the latest in a never-ending string of things that make me want to put more V8s into everything.

      I'm glad to see Roegge's video finally finished, and it's great to see that it's a video that isn't catered to drifters alone. There are a bunch of videos that promote drifting within the drifting scene, but this is the first one that really goes beyond the simple explanation of "drifting is when the car slides sideways" and actually goes into depth why folks like it so much and what makes it unique. For that reason, this is a great video to introduce drifting to people who don't understand what drifting is (here in the US anyways) while staying entertaining for those of us who are already very familiar with the whole scene.

      Everything about that was awesome. I just sold my track day car, is it too soon to build a new one? :P
