customized cupcake car

more like customized douchebag car.

"Put on your matching hat, slip under the muffin top of your Cupcake Car, and let the world figure itself out for awhile. Get (or give) the sheer, joyful chaos of a gift that is mind-blowing, triple-dog-dare, double-infinity forever cool. Make the kids or grandkids literally squeal with joy. Bring it to work and buzz the breakroom. Crash parades! Putter about the ‘hood. Ever had a crowd of kids chasing after you just for the crazy gleeful heck of it? (No worries, the top speed is a comfy-safe 7 mph.) What’s it made of? A 24-volt electric motor, a heavy-duty battery, sheet metal, wire, fabric, wood…and mad genius. Launched at Burning Man as a cooperative art car project, the Cupcake Car sprang from the fevered mind of Bay Area artist Lisa Pongrace and her less-rules-more-laughs posse of artists and techno geeks. Yours will be tricked out with your favorite topping, so start thinking flavors. "

"let the world figure itself out for awhile"? how about you figure out why you are retarded enough to drop 25k on a fucking car that looks like a cupcake?

"crash parades"? douche
"putter about the 'hood"? douche

"ever had a crowd of kids chasing after you just for the crazy gleeful heck of it?"? a.k.a. a mob chasing you down to kick your ass for driving around in a cupcake car. and at 7 mph they WILL catch you.

and neiman marcus you are swimming in a vinegar and water solution too for selling it.

thanks to whitney for the heads up.

Seriously WTF?

I know I saw that and totally laughed. Note, I did NOT list it in my NM wish list.

Totally delirious. But relived that those uptight Neiman's people are smoking the funny stuff.

Neiman's headquarters is out of Dallas. I sure hope there is nothing in the water.
Cupcake cars... is that as bad as the time NM commissioned Mackenzie-Childs to decorate a sleek Airstream for the Holiday book? It was Polly Pocket on acid.
Just saying.

Wow, that's crazy. I actually work with one of the guys who designed that car. It belongs in Burning Man, but nowhere else.

Those look awful- seriously awful!

It reminds me of the Keanu Reeves/Drew Barrymore Babes in Toyland

Sweeeeeet!!!! (Get it?) Those look like something the Shriners would drive in our local parades. They do have themselves some goofy fun. $25,000. Seriously. My 7 year-old daughter would trade her brother for one. Do they take tantrum throwing 3 year-olds as currency? Hmmmm...

i usually think you're funny but this is just mean spirited. your commentary is often times on the mark but being so vicious about a children's toy car? really?

i don't know. something about being so nasty about something so whimsical rubs me in the wrong way.

anon 11:46 nothing pisses me off more than someone who comments on this here blog without fully understanding (aka READING) the post they are commenting on. there is absolutely every indication that this is a car for adults, not children. there are buzz words in the post that tell you so, for example..."make the kids or grandkids squeal with joy", or "bring it to work and buzz the breakroom". but even if you can't read anon, you i am pretty sure you can see the picture of the 3 old (and most likely if they are driving the thing ridiculously rich) douchebags inside the said cupcake. not children.
i would never have made fun of it if it were a child's toy, that would not only have been as you said, mean spirited but it wouldn't have been funny.
but don't worry anon, i forgive you. next time take extra special care to make suer you fully understand the post before you make hasty accusations about my character.
