Retro Reload - Crazy Taxi & Trivia

In this episode we take a look at the Arcade & Dreamcast Classic Crazy Taxi ! Please scroll down to find more trivia about this game.

Film Director & Producer Richard Donner (Lethal Weapon, Superman) wanted to make a Crazy Taxi feature film but eventually bailed out as there wasn't enough material to make a plot out of.

The Crazy Taxi voice sounds a lot like the one hear at the begging in of the Sunny Beach music Video by Japanese Band Mad Capsule Markets.

DSI got a contract to produce a remote control crazy taxi car (DSI eventually went bankrupt).
