How does St. Nick relax? He rents a Corvette.
Even if you aren’t a gear head, you have to admit that renting a classic ‘Vette would be pretty bad ass. Of course, back when Hertz originally ran this add the automobile pictured was brand new, but still.
But what worries me about this image is:
1) Who the hell put the top down on a Corvette in the middle of winter and then sent it speeding driver-less on a winding, snowy road?
2) Santa’s trajectory is all wrong. He’s going to miss that car by a mile, and his broken body is going to slide down that lonely road like Tobey Maguire’s at the end of The Ice Storm. Then Steve Buscemi is going to happen along and find Santa’s loot bag and bury it in the snow, but his partner is going to chuck him into a chipper shredder before he can come back and reclaim it. Which means that a whole bunch of GI Joes and Hot Wheels in their original boxes are going to be ruined by spring, and that’s just sad.
Stay in the sleigh, Santa. It’s for the best.
