If you get a black screen, it probably because they have stopped streaming or it is night time in Japan. Worked fine for me around 11 PM. Of coarse earlier will too. Also, you will be able to click some links that show as real objects within the painting.

Hah, they made a typo. Now that they've finished there's a countdown until the Tokyo Motor Show. At the beginning of every minute, it says the production version of the FT86 II will be at the Tokyo Motor Show on December 30th. Yep, out by a month, haha.

It's a social media stunt. They have an artist draw a picture to represent the speed of the FRS. People who tweet the event get their name on the ticker above the piece of art.

It's for lulz so people give free advertising by "word of mouth" aka social media.

Exactly, thank you! It's just a way for us to log on and like, tweet it, so that we can see our name pop up in Japan. Every few hours they draw something new on it. Also you can click the things drawn. Its just a fun way to countdown the TMS. Pretty good videos too, one of a pretty good sounding exhaust clip.

A few. GM had an internet based mechanism(really) that for every click nudged a Sawnick(tm) forward until it fell off of a tower. It didn't break, thanks in part to a bungie cord. :-/
