3. Warning - Boomer Reference:

4. LOL!
That would be cool. Esepcailly if they showed the HUMMER owners with other conspicuous consumption items in the vehicle. They should be on cell phones, too.

I will always remember the SNL version of that commercial - the bris in the back of the car. ROTFL!


(for the non-Jewish who dno't know, a bris is the ceremony of circumcision)
