For every outstanding rendering of a concept car that captures our imagination, there are also those cars that get our attention for all the wrong reasons. This one ranks high on our list.
Normally, Volvos hold a special place in our hearts, but when somebody decides to cover it with those electric singing fishes, it goes without saying that ‘shocked’ is far too mild of a reaction for us. This particular video is courtesy of Richard Carter, the supposed ‘braniac’ of this singing fish-covered Volvo 240. Calling it the ‘Sashimi Tabernacle Choir’ – ingenious name, by the way – Carter describes how annoying it would be to have hundreds of those singing fishes plastered on his car to his fellow motorists.
Carter even spared no expense in creating his own singing band of merry crustaceans, which, incidentally, comes with its own conductor, Larry the Lobster. Carter also has two soloists – one male and one female – who sometimes perform duets together complete with background accompaniment from the ‘fishchestra’.
Normally, we’d be cringing at the thought of a Volvo being subjected to this kind of abuse but hey, today is Thanksgiving. So to celebrate this occasion, we’re going to take a slightly more upbeat approach and instead give thanks to videos like this that never fails to draw a chuckle from us.
