You have GOT to be kidding

Hummer H3

The Hummer H3 (c) GM
So I just saw an ad for the new "smaller" Hummer, the H3 where there are four people in the desert and as they do a sort of modern dance in chairs, they lean to the left, to the right, then they float off the ground as they meditate and then -- magically - an H3 assembles itself around them and the ad reads "Let the Dance Begin" or some other lame slogan.

In my best Daffy Duck voice let me say "Now Waiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit a minute!"

This thing is GM's -- that's right General Motors which owns Hummer -- latest attempt to prove the old adage about a fool and his money. The Hummer Website lets you see the whole thing. The call it "Chairs" because the four people are dancing using chairs in the middle of the desert.

Hmmmmmmm. I wonder how they float off the ground like that? Could it be because they have no money because gas for this beast is taking their life by the gallon? Or could it be because they are so light from not eating because they are using all their grocery money for gasoline and to pay for this $37,500 gas drinking, wallet shrinker?

I get so tired of ads trying to sell us stuff we don't need for money we don't have so they can charge exorbitant interest and become Rangers in the next campaign.

If Hummer really wanted some business, why don't they roll out the properly armored HUM-VEES for the guys in Iraq? Then maybe their dance in the desert will be over soon.
