…Porsche will scare you with their latest car?

How do you advertise for a car like the Porsche 997 GT3 MkII?

Easy: Blur out the actual car, don’t show the driver, and just focus on what a ride in the passenger seat feels like:

…The Muppets are terrible drivers?

Muppet Speed Camera

In Germany, speed cameras are set up to capture both the license plate of the car in question as well as the drivers face, while blurring the identity of the passengers for privacy purposes, because “The number plate is not enough. We need clear evidence of who is driving the vehicle too.”

Apparently one British driver (whose driver’s seat is conveniently on the opposite side of his German counterparts) has discovered this system, and is taking full advantage of it by placing a stuffed Muppet in the driver’s/passenger’s seat as he flies by the cameras.

So far he’s got the authorities fooled, but as soon as they can figure out which Muppet is going along for the ride, they intend to fully interrogate him until he reveals the identity of the clever co-driver.

…Survivors can document the scene?

Plane Crash Photo

Soon, we will live in a world where everything will be documented and photographed and videoed for the consumption of the masses.

For example: As one Swedish passenger was crawling out of the wreckage of last week’s Thailand plane crash, he grabbed his mobile phone and started to video the scene.

The result is a barrage of bloodied and bewildered passenger photos that give a pretty good idea of the horror that they must have been going through.

What do you think: Is this going too far?

(Caution: Some of the photos are rather gory)
