Dan Trent: to live the American dream in a Ford F150 Raptor

There are plenty of examples of stuff that looks cool and makes total sense in America. But seems just a bit tragic transplanted to a British context. Pick your targets – mine would include Lewis Hamilton talking LA street in a weird mid-Atlantic accent in an attempt to hide the fact he's actually from Stevenage. Starbucks culture – and vile tasting coffee – taking over high streets and service stations the land over. Well-meaning pub bands riffing on the rockabilly thing so hard they actually believe they're from deepest Tennessee. Not darkest Thetford.
