  1. Angels on your body? Isn't that how the whole thing started in Sodom?

  3. Wow -- could that surf flare guy be any more of an incoherent whiner?

  4. The guys on the train are morons but the flare surfing does look kind of cool.

  5. A little dab will do ya. Can I put some holy oil on me? I'd take all the extra help I can get. LOL!

  6. At least the guys on the train have cool fezzes. I'm sure their next of kin will enjoy them soon.

  7. Weird. For some reason, I always thought Ford was an American company.

    Apparently I was wrong...

  8. I managed to listen to 3 minutes of that car mumbo jumbo. Hilarious.
    Somebody with a German accent to give it 'high tech' car cred?
    A british sound for the GPS because we like to get bossed around by the English?
    The only thing missing seems to be some kind of sex toy function since the car is now becoming your personal assistant, secretary, spouse, mother, mistress?
    Most importantly, though: can it fly?? I believe we were promised flying cars quite some time ago and they have yet to deliver!

  9. I'd love it if the car anointing believer prayed for warring angels to protect me. I think she's adorable and that she'd be one hell of a fun dinner party guest.

  10. As much as I hate to sound like a dumb hick, I kinda agree with MIKEINSANJOSE.

    Not sure whether Ford was just aiming to sound more sophisticated with the accents, but frankly it'd inspire more confidence in a US brand to hear the advertising without a foreign accent. :)

  11. That car promo is absurd. Why do you need your car to tell your iPad to push your meetings forward an hour? Are they for real?

  12. So in the future I can use the excuse of "Sorry I'm late for work, my car let me sleep in"?! I can't decide if that's brilliant subversive humour or nonsensical corporate babble. It's a fine line these days.

    @Hugo, German accent, where? I thought that sounded quite the international Indian English accent (= a real insight into the future of technology).

    And the 'heart rate monitoring seat' sounds like they're already thinking of the sex toy add on. Though last time I had sex whilst driving it wasn't a terribly safe experience.

  13. That train surfing looks pretty scary, argh..

  14. I honestly thought the Christian lady thing was a spoof of some kind... then I realized it was real.

    Awwww, I actually kinda love her. She's such a little sweetheart, even if she is totally brainwashed.
