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>

Did You Know?

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 »

Stop-Motion camera tricks make for an unusual short...
26 November 2008 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

It took awhile for me to get use to the concept here--two male drivers driving around the streets in invisible cars. They're actually shown sitting on the ground as they zoom in and around the neighborhood streets. The regular driver who watches all the stop signals meets his match in a cigar-chomping daredevil type who tries to best him in all situations but ends up losing every time.

I suppose this is the moral that's supposed to teach us safe driving, but it's a very unconventional way to spread a message.

Funny for awhile, but after the first few encounters it quickly becomes a one joke short subject that runs on a little too long for my comfort.

Inventive, yes, but it soon wears out its welcome as a short subject once you get the point.
