Because dad's brain is now a turnip, apparently
Your car is now a Hot Spot. Well, thank goodness- because actually planning ahead was soooo exhausting and burned soooo many brain cells. Now, thanks to the new Chevrolet (and your internet-addled kids) you can do all your planning and decision-making on the run, and you never have to put any advanced thought into anything at all! This is even better than that OnStar "how may I kiss your ass today, sir?" Operator At Your Beck and Call service, because it doesn't cost you a monthly fee (or does it?
Meanwhile, those of us who can't afford this car will just have to keep our lives organized in order to keep people from discovering that we are flightly, thoughtless, forgetful nuggets of self-asorption too stupid to remember important stuff. Clearly we will be in the minority soon, as dependence on electronic devices to get us out of the freaking house in one piece will be the norm before the end of next year, if it isn't already.
BTW, why was it so important for the kid in the back to complete whatever arrangements she was making before Mommy got back into the car- it's not like Mommy was going to ask what they were doing.* The point of arming your kids with these stupid toys is so you DON'T have to engage with them. Suddenly DVD players in the car seem quaint- how did that happen so fast?
Oh, and check out the-- umm, "comments" the YouTubers left- eighty percent of them are by sniveling little corporate brown-nosers bleating the title of the commercial. Good job, doggies. Here's a biscuit- just jump a little higher for the boss!
*"You guys ever going to put those down?"
Mom smiles helplessly and forgets even asking eight seconds later. And why not- YOU'RE the reason they HAVE those things, stupid!
