    I think the sight has issues with some foreign characters in the URL. Is this the same video TEG posted in another thread and thus a double post?

    Yes, I reposted it after the title with Asian characters wouldn't load. Someone should delete the original thread that has problems. It is the Tesla Hong Kong video...

    Just want to say I also had this problem but with IE9. I agree with TEG that it should be deleted. I kind of figured the Asian characters might have had something to do with it.

    Very funny VFX :tongue:, but I was referring to the Asian "letters."

    All those "characters" vfx showed are Korean (though Oddjob, Kato, and Kim Jung Ill were portrayed by someone who was Japanese, Chinese, and a Supermarionation puppet, respectively). The characters that caused the now deleted thread problem were Chinese (though they are also used in Japanese, means "car culture").

    We also get plenty of Russian language spam that causes similar problems. Fortunately you guys rarely see it.

    And that is precisely the reason I said Asian characters doug :biggrin: because I didn't know which country they were from. I realize vfx was just being a "character." BTW love the SP reference.
