Christopher Ian Petrie, 23, faces charges of driving under the influence and driving without a license after police caught him on the makeshift vehicle, which was powered by a 50cc engine.
Petrie’s lawyers won an adjournment from magistrate John Parker as they sought to establish “whether a motorized esky [cooler box] was in fact a motor vehicle.”
An amused Parker inquired with Petrie about his cooler box’s performance.
“How much beer can it hold?” he asked the defendant. Petrie told the court the cooler box could hold “at least a couple of cartons.”
I don’t want a motorized beer cooler, I NEED a motorized beer cooler. Why do Australians have all the cool stuff like kangaroos and motorized beer coolers and shit!?
This is a total game-changer. Say you wanna go tailgating at a concert, theirs no need to walk anywhere with this invention. Drive around on a fucking cooler drinking a beer while all the other peasants around you are walking. Genius.
When I purchase my motorized beer cooler, I’ll feel bad for all those losers dragging/carrying their coolers around. That’s straight poor people shit.
