Sometimes the vehicle from a movie gets just as famous and easily recognizable as the stars – the James Bond’s Aston martin, Mad Max’s Ford Falcon, “The Hunt For Red October’s”… well, you get the picture. For the movies, video games, and tv shows that these vehicles star in, they’re iconic emblems of that work. What else can you think of when you see the car from “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang,” or the Warthog from “Halo?” This infographic has 100 vehicles, separated from their names with a key so that you can have fun trying to guess what’s what. How many can you recognize by sight alone?
In the stories we tell in movies, television, video games, and novels, we portray characters who seek the truth.

This infographic seeks to bring those backstage antics front and center, and provides popular fictional characters confronting the mystery of where socks go when we lose them. Mis-matched and missing socks affect us all – but it’s good to laugh at this hardship sometimes, and know that we’re not alone.
