They’re fans.

Most of the time, it’s not the type of love we want, since it’s pretty much appropriation of our culture. Instead of giving us credit for elements of our country that are so dear to us, they use it to turn a profit. Not cool.

However, it seems as if Australia is changing things up.

Housed in the Melbourne Tram Museum, the truck was the idea of the Minister of the Commonwealth Games, Justin Madden who thought it would be a great idea to have the truck

Mick Douglas, an artist from Melbourne, commissioned artists from Karachi to come over to Melbourne and decorate a Z Class Tram, No. 81.

The bus ran for two weeks around the city during the Commonwealth games and was absolutely loved by everyone who saw it.

LOVE.

Not only was the old-school style of transportation adopted for two weeks, the conductor mimicked the exact behavior of our truck drivers. At each stop, the conductor would step out of the bus and yell out every stop and then hit the side of the bus when everyone was ready to go.

Now that’s great detailing.

Karachi W11, the name of the bus, is now a permanent exhibit in the Melbourne Tram Museum and friends, it is PRETTY great and other people think so too.
