MEGADRIVE follows comedian and horrible driver Johnny Pemberton as he travels around the country learning to use and abuse some of the biggest, craziest, most dangerous vehicles the world has ever seen. From Miami to Maine, to Mexicali and back, Johnny criss-crosses the country in search of the ultimate ride while ...
Susan B. Anthony once said, "behind every great vehicle is a lunatic gear head with an inherent mistrust of people from Hollywood" and Johnny proves her right week after week as he hijacks these amazing machines and takes their operators for hernia inducing rides that make them wish they had stayed home and watched Bloomberg instead of joining him on these janky joy rides. (They literally all got hernias. Literally.)
Whether it's an M-1 battle tank, a jet powered semi truck, a souped up fire truck or fighter jet, Johnny will find a way to drive it, hump it, break it, or all of the above. He has insurance companies panicking on land, sea, and air and couldn't care less because it's not his money, it's Viacom's and they're a huge corporation who most certainly can afford it.
Pemberton combines Borat's brains, Steve-O's balls, Jeff Gordon's Lead Foot, and Kelsey Grammar's drinking problem to create a fresh-faced Frankenstein guaranteed to blow minds and gaskets everywhere. Watch and learn, America.
And remember, if you must drive, drive mega.
