This Italian Parking Fiasco Video Is Too Good To Be True, Right?

I'll be honest with you, readers, because you're the only ones I really trust: I love a good fiasco. I mean, if something's going to go wrong, I love a nice avalanche of wrong to really settle things. And it should end with a parade, or maybe a dead horse. This video of a guy trying to park a Fiat 500 comes shockingly… » 11/24/14 8:30pm 11/24/14 8:30pm

Bass Pro Shops Toyota Tundra Is A Cool, Half-Assed Idea

Expensive and awesome outdoor brand lined up with a good half-ton truck: the Bass Pro Shops Edition Toyota Tundra sure sounds like it has a lot of potential. But what it has is a sticker and some bolt-on fender flares. It feels like a missed opportunity for some Toyota-branded coolers and integrated fishing rod… » 9/26/14 5:34pm 9/26/14 5:34pm

You Can't Have Worse Timing Than This Minivan In An Impromptu Land Fill

Cops, firemen, and a haz-mat team in Cherokee County, Georgia spent most of the day cleaning trash off the highway after a semi-truck carrying garbage tipped over. The truck dumped its contents all over the asphalt and one most unfortunately positioned Honda Odyssey. » 9/26/14 10:35am 9/26/14 10:35am

Watch A High-Speed Off-Road Hill Climb Go Terribly Wrong

We've seen how beastly purpose-built off-road buggies can be. Even when the climb doesn't end as planned, these little monsters can take a tumble and preserve their passenger. I think driver Bobby Tanner here owes his roll cage fabricator a gift basket after surviving this insanity. » 6/30/14 3:27pm 6/30/14 3:27pm

Volkswagen India Puts Vibrators In Newspapers, Tweets That Women Are…

A creative type at Volkswagen of India's advertising firm thought it would be a smart idea to put small vibrating devices in the Times of India to simulate "excitement." Instead, Indians thought they were like vibrators and took to Twitter to make jokes about VW and sex (India, they're just like us!). » 9/12/12 9:30am 9/12/12 9:30am

Watch Ferrari Desecrate An Ancient Chinese Monument

Ferrari celebrated the 20th anniversary of its entry into China with bravado seemingly more American than Italian — by laying rubber on top of an ancient Chinese wall using a dragon-adorned Ferrari 458 Italia. The Chinese officials (who weren't paid off) for this event were understandably displeased by the… » 5/09/12 4:00pm 5/09/12 4:00pm

This May Be The Worst Way To Transport Something Fragile

If it's your responsibility to transport a huge, fragile package shaped like a sewer pipe, can we suggest not using a Ford Mustang to do it? And, should you be stuck in this strange predicament, can we further insist you don't connect said pipe to your car with sweatshirts closed into the trunk and hood? » 4/11/12 4:30pm 4/11/12 4:30pm

Lotus Just Turned A Joke Into A PR Disaster On Facebook

In the annals of corporate history, I doubt any company has ever flipped their shit more completely than Lotus just did in this Facebook post. Meant to be a response to media reports about the automaker's financial problems, management instability, and one mostly harmless joke, it quickly became the ultimate example… » 4/11/12 2:00pm 4/11/12 2:00pm

Politician Accidentally Turns Campaign Bus Into Girls Gone Wild Ad

Canadian politician Danielle Smith and her conservative Wildrose Party are hoping to unseat the liberal Progressive Conservatives and set the agenda for Alberta's future. It's unfortunate for her, then, that her party sounds like the name of a gentleman's club and her campaign bus has wheels in a particularly awkward… » 3/19/12 4:00pm 3/19/12 4:00pm
