McLaren TOONED "Hunt 40" is Made of 53% Recycled LOLs

Hey, remember McLaren's TOONED cartoons from a few years ago? Yeah, they were neat. Seeing as McLaren-Honda is currently so successful that they don't need to put any work into attracting sponsors, they've decided now's a useful time to bring back the tongue-in-cheek animations... and when I say "bring back" I mean that they essentially repackaged one of their old Tooned 50 episodes from 2013. See, it's also 40 years since 1976, the year that notorious playboy James Hunt won the F1 world championship with the legendary racing team, so why not commemorate such an incredible season in a unique way? Conveniently, they already did as part of their 50th anniversary celebrations, so they took the majority of that episode and bookended it with fresh cringe-laughs including a direct reference to the excellent #PlacesAlonsoWouldRatherBe meme and Jenson Button in speedos calling Fernando Alonso "my little chorizo," because any joke at this point is better than that Back To The Future thing they did last year.

Anyway, it's funnier than I've just made it sound (honest!), so watch an enjoy... perhaps by relaxing on a camping chair near a Brazilian race track.
