The Evolution of Disgustingly Conspicuous Consumption Continues.....
As a bit of irony, this commercial clip on YouTube is preceded by an ad for Honda, promising that if we buy one of their vastly less pretentious vehicles we'll be the "envy of the neighborhood." Um, not if our next-door neighbor buys one of these fricking chariots, we won't.
I'm not even going to even get into the fact that David Bowie is either just another horrid sellout, or he lost the rights to his most overrated 80s hit. I just came home from a week of grading more than a thousand essays of generally poor quality, and I'm pretty out of it, ok?
In fact, I'll just point out that when Marie Antoinette took her final ride in front of cheering crowds, it was in a simple peddler's cart. Just sayin'.
As for the rest of this dreck, well, it reminds me of nothing more than the two chariot scenes in those Hunger Games films. Without the happy ending- you know, 90 percent of the riders being killed in awful ways. Because man, if you need cart your over-indulged ass around in one of these things, be ready to face karma when it comes back to bite you in aforementioned ass. I bet you didn't spend one moment thinking about all the kids you could be feeding with the money you poured into this repulsive, unnecessary ego-stroking toy. Too busy imagining be gaped at and admired, right?
Well, guess what? When you breathe your last, all that money buys you a slightly larger hole to toss your worthless corpse into. Sans head, if there is a deity and if His Creations ever wake the hell up.
