This year, the theme for Burning Man was "The American Dream." While some may argue that being American means choosing what is right or wrong for yourself, the revelers at this year's Burning Man festival made a statement by creating a giant Hummer out of wood. The front of the Bummer Hummer was painted in rather festive shades which blended into military-style camo at the rear. The vehicle was built to represent rampant American consumerism, especially in these days of high gas prices.

The Burning Man festival itself can perhaps be considered a bit excessive itself, and this wooden Hummer certainly could as well. The house-sized vehicle was burned at the end of the festivities - sounds a bit like inconspicuous consumption. Still, regardless of what you think about the Bummer Hummer, some sort of statement was made and witnessed by all those in attendance. Therefore, its builders surely consider it a success.
