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>

Interesting and funny safety flick
28 June 2014 | by rtivey913See all my reviews

This is a very humorous short film that I recommend to anyone. It features this man who decides to go for a drive, and he gets into his car, and in this world, every vehicle is invisible! Enter this cigar smoking guy who doesn't follow road rules. For some reason, he is after the guy who does follow road rules. Cue a montage of the man failing attempts to get thee other man, such as slipping on a banana peel, driving over his glasses, and a hilarious chase scene you have to see. Which results in him being towed. In the end of the flick, the other man meets a young woman, who smokes a cigar. I recommend this film to anyone who is ready to drive, and wants to be entertained at the same time. 8/10.
