Storyline

A man wearing suit, tie, black-framed glasses, and a hat, leaves his house in LA's San Fernando Valley and heads off in his car. Except his car is him, seated on the ground - he moves via stop motion. He's careful and methodical, but when a cigar-chomping hotshot cuts him off, he engages in a bit of passive aggressive driving. We watch one of the drivers get gas, receive a citation from a cop, and deal with a flat tire. The two rival drivers are eventually in quite a race, which ends when one hurls off the road. At the end, a woman in gold slippers puts a tip in the driver's hat. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Goofs

When the man in the suit first backed out of the driveway and stalled in the gutter, he left a wet trail when he sneezed-backfired into the middle of the road. When he pulled away, the camera cut to a side angle and the wet trail was missing. See more »

Crazy Credits

After the title is shown, there is a roll-up where the producers thank a long list of auto safety organizations, ending with, "...without whose contribution this film was made." One of the organizations listed is "United Tailgaters". See more »

Enjoyably Unconventional - Quite Funny and Inventive
21 June 2006 | by (the mid mid west) – See all my reviews

This is an inventive film of stop-motion humor that illustrates a few examples of smart, safe driving techniques within the context of an extended, quite humorous street battle between two very different male drivers.

I won't give away any of the visual jokes, but the overall effect is pretty amazing and hilarious.

There is no spoken dialog, just humorous sound effects and original music to accentuate the on screen action. Another incredible aspect of this work is that any southern California streets were ever empty enough to shoot films like this. Watch carefully - there's never even a single automobile in sight!

I was lucky enough to catch this as an interstitial between features on Turner Classic Movies on 6/21/2006. What a rare treat...Thanks TCM!
