Becoming a "Manual" - MINI Video

Are you craving more motoring exhilaration? Don't worry - you're becoming a manual. Watch this video to better understand this awkward, but ultimately awesome phase of life, and how MINI can help you enter Manualhood.

Styled after 1950s-era public service announcements that taught students  about puberty, nutrition, and the threat of nuclear war, the new “Becoming a  Manual” video explains why all drivers should opt for cars with a manual  transmission. In addition to pointing out benefits like enhanced fuel economy, a  more exciting driving experience, and a lower base price, the video teaches us  that driving stick is a part of growing up.

“As we approach manualhood, our bodies and minds start to change,” explains  the cheery gym teacher. “Manualhood is when your body is craving more  exhilaration than an automatic can provide.”

If you’re not sure how to get started operating a car with a manual  transmission, Mini has helpfully provided a PDF called “Becoming a Manual.” And for even  more reasons why you should learn to drive a manual, Mini has compiled an infographic of statistics gleaned from an online survey.  Among the findings: people who can’t drive a stick-shift are 25 percent more  likely to play the Facebook game FarmVille.

So what are you waiting for? Watch the video below and get ready to embrace  your manualhood.
