    those that are living in the US may be familiar with the television station MTV. they have a show on MTV called Pimp My Ride where Xzibit and the West Coast Custom Crew goes around and fixes people's car and make it "pimp". well on a recent episode of Pimp My Ride, they had a guy that plays badminton on the show. he's actually a local player in the southern california area that attends Pasadena City College. well anyways they actually put a shuttlecock launcher into his car which was pretty cool. hopefully a lot of people saw this and this will furthur promote the sport in the US. here's a little clip from the MTV website.
