    No no no, usta bee and dean... Amish never wear mustachio but only a beard. Upper lip facial hair is something which denotes "military man" and to the Amish and other conservative anabaptist brethren, they never wish to be confused with the military as they are Ambassadors of Christ and pacifists. I thought the vid was "fun" and realized that, obviously, it was PR bumph. That does not take away from the fact that Hyundai and Kia are doing exceptionally well in a very tough economy, and will end up doing better than GM... even if GM survives.

    I've seen better beards on the lower body of a few ex girlfriends. Seriously. Take male hormones and grow a real beard. So irritating I want to tie him up and burn candle wax all over his body.

    Between that and the press release the odds of me buying one dropped to somewhere close to 0 even though I like the exterior. Where are all these hipsters supposed to come from to buy these Scions and Souls? Maybe its just me, but from my not terribly distant youth I think the kind of people who would be impressed by that glow in the dark interiors are precisely the kind of people who are either driving whatever Mom & Dad bought for them or some 10 year old Impala. Generally by the time you can afford a new car this kind of posturing is actively repugnant. Take a line from Honda, and just advertise the cars as cars, and let the styling speak for itself. Don't slather it in LOLspeak and cheap bling. The Live Journal set may drool over it, but they won't be able to buy it. Especially now that Mom and Pops 401(k) rolled over and died.
