As Planet Green’s reality series Battleground Earth films its way across the US, several local newspapers are chiming in with local reaction and giving insight into some of the ‘battles’ we can expect.
For those not in the know, the series will follow rocker Tommy Lee going up against rapper Ludacris in a struggle to see who can be the most eco-friendly. Both gents — while admitting they have some light shades of green — don’t come from heavy backgrounds on the subject and are excited to learn more — while also hopefully educating others.
Anyways, the odd green couple pulled into Dallas, Texas, film crew in tow, and not surprisingly low on biodiesel fuel for their buses. So, their mission was to get to Keller’s Drive-In and sell as many burgers and fries as possible to generate the most grease-convertible-to-biofuel. From the article,
“Under the direction of several bullhorn-bellowing directors, the rapper and the rocker were instructed to engage in some trash-talking over who would accumulate the most orders for everything from Keller’s tater tots and hulking burgers to those ever-popular corn dogs — all in the name of creating fuel-producing kitchen grease. Having dispensed with the taunts, each star sprinted toward in-coming cars.
‘I will give $20 to the person who can eat the most corn dogs,’ Ludacris announced. And the gathering crowd began to chant his name, clearly in approval of his scheme.”
Sounds like this series is going to be a lot of fun. For more info, jump on over to Planet Green.
