Mad Max: Fury Road Comes To Life through One Dads Obsession

Californian director, Ian Pfaff has an interesting hobby. He loves building Mad Max: Fury Road toys for his two young kids, two-year-old Junior, and five-month-old Benji. It would seem however that this interesting craft activity isn’t as much about his kids and more about his fondness for all things Mad Max!

In an interview he noted that although little Junior does apparently like the cool car her dad created, Benji can’t yet sit up and so the few times he has ‘used’ the car have really been photo opps! “Usually Junior hops in and then I’ll push it around and steer using the handle on the top while we chase the dogs around,” he said. Benji, on the other hand, can barely sit up, so he’s “only used for posing.”

Ian’s wife Emily also has a creative streak and has been donating a number of her own belongings to perfect the toys. One of her most interesting donations was an old breast pump, which was to give the top of one of the cars some much-needed texture.

Interestingly enough, the kids have never seen the film, but Ian says that in the coming days he’ll be sitting the family down to watch  both Road Warrior and Fury Road and, together with some friends will film a Mad Max trailer with the kids and their cars with a surprise appearance from a number of drones.

What started as a daddy obsession may well become a family way of life!
