Angry art car spotted at
17th Bryant Florida and Mariposa.
A car salesman recently told me that almost all 2012 cars are built with angry “faces”* because market research shows that people want to project an angry image when they drive. Or something like that. I’m not really sure why people want it. They want to look fast and furious? He said that the main exception are the people who’re buying a Prius or other hybrid, they still want a happy (dopey) face.
*I’m not talking Pixar’s version of a car face, where the windshield is where the eyes are. I’m talking Nick Park’s version, where we all see the face, the headlights and grille. Speaking of which, don’t you think Pixar should have given out windshield shades with eyes on them to promote Cars 2?? Marketing done easy!
