I don’t know what’s going on here, between the whales and the comets and the screaming saxophone, but all I know is that from now on, all car ads should be like this Volvo promo film from 1999. And also, we actually found the answer to who would download a car on the Internet.

(Hint, it’s this guy):


But in him, we see all of us. Because hell yeah, we would download a car, and hell yeah, we would stalk a moose, which is also something that is in this video that I don’t understand. Between the English-ish music, and the future-ish visuals, and the completely random computer screw up which is actually oddly spot-on, all I know is I wish I could configure my own car on the Internet.

We can all dream, can’t we?

One day, kids. One day.

H/t to Michael!
