Superclogger – Click above to watch video after the jump

If you're on an LA freeway and traffic is especially miserable, look for a white Mazda pickup – the one with the yellow dudes in the back. What you've got is a mobile puppet show led by Joel Kyack, a Southern California artist who wants to explore themes like chaos, control, individual will and "negotiations of agency and resignation." With puppets. In the back of truck. During rush hour.

There's an FM transmitter in the bed, so anyone within 200 feet can tune in to the dialogues of Alexi the Eastern European iron worker or the unnamed Party Girls. You can find a sample show in the video after the jump, or if you want the real thing and you can't get on the 405, there'll be a closing exhibition at LA's Hammer Museum on September 21.

      I wish I had a reason to be on the 405-N during rush hour. Or had a car.

      The freeway is congested because there are too much cars on it, and this show vehicle just add one more car to the freeway, not to mention the distraction it caused to other drivers (which I only assume will further slow down the traffic). How a brilliant idea!

      Oy, hippies.

      I prefer Charlie Harper's idea for traffic jam hookers - Bumper to Humper.

      I could swear this was posted on Autoblog 3-4 months ago.

      I saw this a while ago, I thought that it was a funny idea. Just because I hate being stuck in traffic.

      ok...wait...WTF??

      It's a nice idea, but the puppet show was terrible. Must be a lot of sleepy drivers on the roads after watching that.

        Yeah, I thought that it would be entertaining too...
