Dance, Mustang! Dance! – Click above to watch the video after the break

"There are thousands of products available to customize a car's performance or handling. There are even more products for unique interiors, exteriors, lights, and sounds. But, in the midst of all the products and kits out there, no one has been able to alter their car's emblem... until now." So says Emblem Alive, a newly created company that seeks to change the face fascia of motoring forevermore.

Actually, we have seen custom emblems before, but we'll let them get away with their statement anyway. 'Cause it's just that cool. Or something. Seriously, who wouldn't want a galloping, neighing Ford Mustang emblem on their brand-new ponycar from the Blue Oval? Or, ya know, a golden Bowtie that beats like The Heartbeat of America?

Let's play with the idea of a dancing and singing emblem a little bit, shall we? How about a growling Jaguar Leaper? Or a Rolls-Royce Spirit of Ecstasy that pops up from the grille (oh, wait) and speaks in the most pretentious voice you can come up with: "My other car is a Veyron" as it dances like a dashboard-mounted novelty hula girl. A Ram 1500 that proudly declares 'Yeah, it's got a Hemi.' Our personal pick: a Z-car emblem that whispers "Black Gold."

"The choices are amazing. The possibilities are endless." Why yes, they are. And don't you worry. A spitting Cobra is reportedly in the works.

By the way, we're well aware that Thursday is April 1st, and this could very well be an extremely elaborate joke intended to make us all look foolish. That said, somebody sure went to a whole heck of a lot of trouble if that's the case. We want to believe, we really do. You will too – just click past the break to watch the video and read the press release. All your dreams will come true. Trust us.

Emblem Alive(TM): The Ultimate Vehicle Customization

Emblem Alive(TM) makes car emblems come alive with sound, action, and motion!

WILMINGTON, N.C., March 30 /PRNewswire/ -- There are thousands of products available to customize a car's performance or handling.

There are even more products for unique interiors, exteriors, lights, and sounds. But, in the midst of all the products and kits out there, no one has been able to alter their car's emblem...until now.

Emblem Alive(TM) is the most impressive vehicle customization. It allows a car's emblem to actually be adapted! Using patent pending VeSAM(TM) technology, Emblem Alive adds motions to the car emblem. Motions include moving the emblem away from the vehicle at various speeds, twisting the emblem, etc. Precision actuators put the emblem in motion. Sounds are emitted by a high fidelity speaker system. The sounds match the make of vehicle. For example, a Ford Mustang can sound like a galloping horse! Actions are also available. Imagine the Ford Cobra spitting out water! You've got to see it to believe it.

Our product debut was at the 4th Annual Car Show at Jeff Gordon Chevrolet in Wilmington, North Carolina. The Tri-Beach Cruisers Car Club sponsored the event. We had a very successful debut of the Camaro and Mustang prototypes, and wowed hundreds of visitors. Emblem Alive is unlike anything they've ever seen before.

The choices are amazing. The possibilities are endless. Emblem Alive is the way to make a vehicle stand out in a crowd.

EmblemAlive.com(TM) is owned and created by JEPP Industries, Inc.

JEPP Industries, Inc. was established in 2010 for the purpose of creating a wide range of innovative and cutting edge products.

      "Let me be perfectly clear. It's entrepreneurs like the folks at Emblem-Alive that are going to get America moving again. That's why, starting today, I've ordered my car company,.. I mean General Motors to offer this futuristic technology on all new cars sold in America."

      The rest is history.

      I can't believe you wrote 4.2 paragraphs on that piece of crap. I thought the slump in the economy would have eliminated most of these useless products... so much for darwinism.

      The car equivalent of Big Mouth Singing Billy Bass, or whatever the hell that abomination is called.

      Just when I thought it was dead, it gets re-incarnated on the front of a car.

      That is quite possibly the lamest thing I've ever seen.

      That's sad. You know the first time your badge starts dancing when somebody walks by it's getting ripped off.

      This would fit in with all the great automotive accessories at Walmart, Target, maybe the $0.99 store, etc.

      Would go great with plastic spinner wheel covers, too!

      The future of this product would be much brighter if 13 year-olds had the means, and legal standing to own automobiles.

      For me I really started to laugh when the 'stang emblem started to move back and the galloping effect went along with it hahaha.

      Sadly people will buy these and we'll start seeing them at autoshows. Curious if they'll create other emblems.

      I don't know what these things cost, but I'm pretty sure that a custom vinyl decal saying "I have no taste and no confidence in my own manhood" would send the same message for less money.
