Freak of the Week: The Prius Poser
Here’s a headscratcher for ya: When is a Prius lamer than..a Prius?
When it’s custom? Nah. I’m down with that. Look at this badass version from George Barris that I spotted on the freeway a few years ago:
So good. Or my beloved Big Gay Prius (& fellow Freak of the Week alum, read it here):
Lovin’ you from here, pal.
But just last week, I spotted a Prius that is so terrible, so offensive, so obnoxious, I could barely hold it together. I almost hate to show it to you. But for the good of us all, I think I must. So brace yourselves..here it is:
Isn’t it awful? Are you as furious as I am? Oh wait. What? Just looks like a black Prius? Oh, ok. Get a load of this close up:
Yes, that is exactly what you think it is. Carbon fiber. ON A PRIUS. I’m pretty sure this is a sign that the end is near, my friends. It’s been nice knowing you. Seriously. Who does this:
I think we can all agree that the world has gone carbon fiber crazy. Carbon fiber bikes, fully carbon fiber supercars, carbon fiber phone cases, for God’s sake. I’ll admit, I’m part of the problem with my carbon fiber stand up board and paddle (which is actually as awesome as it sounds). But the day that some d-bag can slap a carbon fiber wrap on his rear view mirror and roll his black Prius into the Target parking lot and think I”m gonna stand for it is the day I roll over dead. It’s just plain wrong. Here’s another shot:
I’m sorry, I’ll stop the visual abuse now. The big question here is: What was he thinking? Was he going to drag race a Volt? Was he gonna roll his ass to Willow Springs, slap on a helmet and do some laps? God only knows. But what we all know is that this an abomination.
So please, before you go defacing your vehicle yourself, give it a good hard think. If it’s a Prius. Stop.
