Sometimes you come upon a product that makes you go: Uh, what? The thing in the picture is one of those. At first we thought it was a Fisher Price attempt at a car cover, until we noticed the scaffolding and the woman -- who's standing up -- "unzipping the door." But when we realized what it actually is, we had all kinds of questions that began with "Why would anyone ...." Wait until you see what's inside. We won't spoil the surprise. And Mr. or Ms. Inventor, would you mind coming down to the station? We have a few questions we'd like to ask you.

      So there's a girl inside. Big effing deal.
      Retarded is right.

      We have enough parked cars sideswiped here where I live... I think I'll pass.

      Does it come in pink?

      So.... you have to zip it up from the OUTSIDE?

      That's not a tent, it's actually a car cover from a MINI Cooper.

      Looks like a decent place to do some f*cking but not much else.

      I once lived in a city where people would get in fistfights because residents put folding chairs in parking spaces to hold them while they went to church or shopping.

      People would just run over the chairs or pitch them out of the way and a Donneybrook ensued. Can you imaging driving around with the family in tow for an hour in DC or San Fran, then seeing this? I'd run it over.

        Folding chairs are only OK if you invested a few hours clearing snow out of said spot, and only then for a few days afterwards.

      Imaginatively innovative yet infinitely retarded...

      Funny, read the comments where the article is posted and it's praised. Read those here and you get reality. Forget rain leaking down the street. Forget the NOISES. Forget the cars that could POTENTIALLY run you over. Forget the rats that will come out at 3am. Forget the coin spent on the meter (unless used strictly over night) REMEMBER the city crack dealers who would love to cut your ass. REMEMBER the homeless that would love to have your text as opposed to their cardboard box.

      This is just not stupid, it's puts those stupid people in danger. Dumb beyond comprehension. If you are that broke, get a job or stop buying car tents!

      I think I read elsewhere that this was actually more of an artistic/political statement about the space taken up by automobiles in our urban centers.

      (Don't shoot the messenger.)

      This is stupid on so many different levels it is scary. If you were sadistic enough take your life in hand and attempt this; what does one do for a bathroom while camping with the street people.

        Just set up your tent next to a storm drain.

      I'm sure we can't guarantee the external safety of one of these contraptions. But...heck, very creative.
