Horse-drawn Hummer H2 – Click above to view the video after the jump

When the internal combustion engine finally helped the automobile pass the horse-drawn carriage as the chosen method of transportation for a majority of citizens in the United States, that a step in the right direction. Right? Moving forward about a hundred years... when the behemoth Sport Utility Vehicle that never actually seems to venture off the beaten path passed the minivan in the hearts and minds of families across the country as the people-mover of choice, was that a step in the right direction?

If you answered no to either of the above questions, perhaps you'll enjoy the video pasted after the break. Created by artist Jeremy Dean (read about our initial post on the project here), the converted Hummer H2 is called Futurama and is pulled by two white horses named, appropriately enough, Duke and Diesel. Hummers are for horses? See for yourself.

      The Hummer was the stupidest looking car ever. It's a MILITARY VEHICLE, folks, not a luxury car! A luxury car is supposed to have cool, dynamic lines, not a big shoe box. Whoever brainwashed you idiots into thinking the Hummer was cool, is laughing all the way to the bank.

      Hummer has gone down hill. They do not look like hummers anymore. They look like jeeps. Bring back the old school style hummer.

        This is exactly what TWO horsepower look like.

      One man can push a complete car. Surely two horses will have much less trouble pulling one missing it's drive train.

      It's funny, and interesting but I'm not all that amused by it.

      Beyond stupid.
      obama will probably like it, and sign into law that we have to buy it. Or go to jail.

      Before the onslaught of comments saying this is dumb useless expensive art, I would like to jump in quickly and say that (although I'm wasn't a big fan of the idea when I first read it on AB a few months ago) it does look pretty surprising in the way they just didn't take out the engine and attach a horse to it. The position of the seats really makes it look like a horse carriage.

      Was it a waste of time for these artists? Probably not. Is it art? (do we really need that question that relies so heavily on subjective taste? To each his own.)

      Can't wait for the "Give Your Horse a Hummer" ad campaign.

      Monsterous ? Really ? I guess it's a nice departure from yesterday's "you're" instead of "your" and so on... But really, any spell check would catch this. It's either monstrous or monstruous, but monsterous is not a word.

        Most of these AOL-related bloggers are real "amachoors" regarding spelling and grammar. I used to preach to my kids to never use words they couldn't pronounce, define or spell.

      As proud california liberal enviromental nutjob and enjoyer or terrible subjective art. I just don't like it. At first it seems to me like a BALLIN carriage, not a statement on environmental policy. Also, don't horses create a good amount of green house gases as well? And then there is the whole rich/poor divide poorly portrayed in the piece. This piece assumes the rich (who drive hummers) remain rich as they are using a horse pulled carriage for transportation. Not sure if that's a good message to portray in environmentalist art.

        In case you have not yet realized what climategate is, greenhouse gases are basicaly a scare tactic to get the people of the world under a tax scam. CO2 is a life tax, it has no environmental value whatsoever.

        If you're starting to argue that animals are bad for the environment you may consider the possiblilty that you have lost your marbles... just sayin.
