DVD Headlights


I was cruising around Chicago this afternoon, and came across these people staring at a headlight. I couldn't imagine what was so interesting about a headlight, but the headlight was actually a DVD player. Luckily I had my digital camera and snapped a picture.

According to the owner who referred to himself as "T-bone," this little car bling costs $900 and is apparently great for "hood-gating parties." With the speaker system in the back seat, this 5 inch beauty actually works. Of course, the people look like reflective midgets, but who was I to rain on this techno party? Talk about bringing Road Rage to a whole new level...

As crazy as it sounded and looked, I think this might actually have redemptive value. Imagine when someone cuts you off, you could fire up a clip of Dirty Harry. Or how freaky would it be to have two Terminators coming at you in your rear view mirror? Some good ole' boy in a jacked up Ford gives you the finger as they blow past you? Maybe it would be time to cue up that redneck-riding-the-nuclear-bomb scene from Dr. Strangelove. And nothing would cure that little old lady going 15 mph that Darth Vader riding her tail. The Force is Strong with this one...















Objects in Mirror are closer than they appear.

It would work better for me if they didn't spell it "Farenheit"...
