If you were going to test drive a new car, who would you want to take with you? Your spouse? A friend? Maybe an automotive journalist? Well take it from us: there's one of us riding shotgun just about every time we go to drive anything, and we're not all we're cracked up to be.

How about a celebrity comedian? Well, that largely depends on which comedian we're talking about here. Some – say, Jerry Seinfeld or Jay Leno, for example – might be more helpful than others, being more or less schooled in the finer points of the modern automobile. Adam Carolla might seem like he belongs on that list too, but in this latest video for a friends at Edmunds.com, the one-time host of The Car Show on Speed TV seems bent on being as comedically intrusive as possible. Which may be funny, but helpful? Not so much. See what we mean in the video below, and the next time you go to test drive a new car, you just might find the world's most popular podcast host climbing in with you.

      Constructive criticism. BTW, English is not my favorite subject. But... "Adam Carolla is world's the least helpful test drive co-pilot". Two ways this could've worked. Adam Carolla: The world's least helpful test drive co-pilot. Or Adam Carolla is the world's least helpful test drive co-pilot Its Monday. No big deal. :)

      Help me out here. Adam is helping with "test drives from Edmunds"? Edmunds owns an Audi dealership? I'm not making the connection. Also, I like Adam, but this wasn't funny or entertaining.

      How about proper English? Kind of embarrassing to say the least. It should read "Adam Carolla is THE world's least helpful test drive co-pilot".

      If I were truly test driving one of these cars, I'd politely ask him to get out. Failing that, I would insist he get out of the car, and in a not-so-polite manner. Failing that, I'd kick his azz.

      I'd rather have a dead skunk ride shotgun than the world's least funny "comedian".

      He's one of those people that you wonder how they ever got famous. Not entertaining. Not funny. Not even mildly interesting.

        The most successful podcast of all time + 3 new york times bestselling books + sells out shows across the country year after year + created and sells his own alcohol. Yeah everything you said.

      Adam Carolla has demontrated that he is one of the most offensive personalities in show business; a misogynist, homophobe, and culturally insensitive bully. "Not funny" does not go far enoughl. He's offensive!

      I've never heard of Adam Corolla. I'd like to see the out-takes of the customers who didn't recognize him.
