I don’t know what they’re making, but I’m all for it. Even if they’re just melting down scrap, it still looks pretty cool, and looking cool is the most important part. If you’re going to do something, you might as well look good while doing it. It doesn’t matter if you’re doing it correctly or even competently, just look at Italian cars or French movies. I know for a fact that they have everything backwards and wrong, but they’re so chronically cool it doesn’t seem to matter.
The visually pleasing aesthetics of a foundry are undeniable, because it just looks so gosh darn interesting. The bright, molten metal thrown against a rough, industrial backdrop is enough to get any hot-blooded man in the mood. I’m sure that every kid would want a poster of a foundry on their wall instead of the same boring cars and bands as everyone else. It’s some intense stuff, man. If H.R. Giger and Enzo Ferrari designed a poster, this is what it would look like. It’s what a loading dock in Blade Runner would look like. It’s the final scene of Terminator Two, minus Arnold Schwarzenegger descending into a pool of molten metal.
The only way this could get cooler is if they started tossing virgins into the molten pit to appease their pagan gods. Primarily, the god of fire and brimstone, the god of foundry workers, and the god of looking freaking awesome.
