Kate and Will Spicer's brother, Tom, has fragile X syndrome, the commonest cause of inherited learning disability. He is also a massive fan of Lars Ulrich from Metallica. We made a promise to Tom that we would find Lars. Tom's dream is our promise. We went on a Mission to Lars. And we filmed it.

Our home for the next few weeks is this excellent Meet the Fokkers and Borat style only in America fairly giant mobile home. William chose this one because, "It's the funniest".

The thought of staying in hotels is horrific when you are making something as low budget as Mission to Lars.
