Likes we gotta 'fess up that we proudly prides ourselves in bein' what we would call Dino-purists...wantin' our Dino straight up....not much interested in those who try to improve on what we consider the perfectly perfect way that our perfectly perfect Dino croons a tune, cracks a joke of sez his lines in a scene from a flick. BUT, today's Dino-gram proves that sometimes, yes sometimes the way that our Dino makes the scene can be enhanced by today's tremendous technology and some cool cool creativity a la Dino!
What our devoted-to-Dino pallie Michael shares is a youtube vid clip matchin' up the car chase scene from our Dino's first Matt Helm caper, "The Silencers" where Dino and Stella Stevens are in his drink-mobile station wagon goin' south and gettin' pursued by the Big O baddies with the soundtrack from "Mad Max: Fury Road."

Especially if it involves post-apocalyptic car chases. And booze. Lots of booze."

DEAN MARTIN STARS IN "MAD MATT"
MICHAEL GARCIA JAN 6, 2016
Dean Martin was one of the coolest mofos to ever don a tux and drink scotch. He was always my favorite member of the Rat Pack. On top of being a great singer and an excellent drinker, he was also a pretty talented comic actor. In the late 60's he made several spy spoof movies playing a character called Matt Helm. At the beginning of the scene he and the girl he's with are openly drinking while driving. That in and of itself makes this worth watching. But then the subsequent car chase was cut to the soundtrack from Mad Max: Fury Road and it all kind of makes sense.
Some films could use a little updating. Especially if it involves post-apocalyptic car chases. And booze. Lots of booze.
