Sitar Wars on the Rickshaw Run

A few years ago, two friends and I participated in the Rickshaw Run, an insane ordeal in which idiots drive broken-down ancient rickshaws 2,500 miles across all of India. In just two weeks. With no guidance whatsoever. We fought off bandits and rapists, pushed our bullshit dead rickshaw way too many miles after way too many breakdowns, lost a bunch of weight due to diarrhea, and had the time of our lives. Even better, we raised over $4,000 for charity along the way.

I made this little stupid video afterward, to commemorate what we went through, and to thank everyone who donated (Haim was a really popular band at the time, please don't judge music choices from 2013):
