This Ancient Australian 4x4 Commercial Is Full Of Hilarious Lies

The International Scout 80 is adorable, capable off-road, and easy to work on. But it's also brutally uncomfortable, slow as a sloth going to the dentist, and barely safer than walking blindfolded across the highway. This commercial might have been a slight oversell 50 years ago, now it's just funny. » 9/11/14 12:25pm 9/11/14 12:25pm

Watch a High Horsepower Diesel Drag Car Hit The Strip
