    Video: Worst car unloading attempt ever is quick and painful
    1397580240

    Here's a fun fact: not all automotive calamities in Russia are caught on dash cam. Occasionally, someone with just a cell phone captures some gold, like this woeful attempt at unloading what appears to be a Lada. First of all, as with most jobs, having the correct tool for the task makes the ...

    Video: 'Qashqai' so hard to pronounce even Nissan is poking fun at it
    1397518140

    In the US, there aren't a lot of vehicle names that are very difficult to pronounce. Maybe the Volkswagen Touareg might trip up a few people, but by and large, we've got it pretty easy. Our friends in Europe, though, have a bigger challenge, thanks to vehicles like the Nissan Qashqai. Yes, ...

    Video: Watch these workers ghost-ride the garbage truck with purpose
    1397174400

    There's an old phrase that suggests we "work smarter, not harder." This garbage truck driver must have read that as "work like a monumental idiot, not harder." The sanitation worker in Leon, Guanajuato, Mexico basically ghost-rides his garbage truck while running to grab bags that have been left ...

    1397156340

    Unless you yourself are a parent – and even then – being forced to watch videos of other people's kids is a special kind of torture. But every once in a while we come across a clip that makes us smile instead of scowling or rolling our eyes. This is one of those clips. In this video, ...

    Video: Ford Australia pulls the ol' talking car prank
    1396897260

    Siri from Apple has proven that being able to talk to your technology doesn't always work perfectly. But what if it could eventually go far enough to give a personality to inanimate objects like our cars? Ford took just this path to comedic effect by playing a prank on many unsuspecting ...

    Video: Saturday Night Live lampoons GM CEO Mary Barra's testimony before Congress
    1396888380

    A whole lotta spotlights are being turned on General Motors because of the automaker's recent recall issues. Following John Stewart's skewering of the Chevrolet Cobalt issue, Saturday Night Live is the latest to wonder - in its parodic way - "WTF?" Last weekend's episode opened with a skit that ...

    Video: Watch Jon Stewart and the Daily Show skewer GM over ignition recalls
    1396559640

    We love a good Jon Stewart take down rant. The Daily Show host has grown to be a master, taking aim at targets as common as the politics and as unusual as Chicago-style pizza (to this day, one of his funniest and most accurate tirades). While Stewart is not a car-crazed comedian like Jay Leno, ...

    1396396860

    Before the advent of the Internet, big days for automotive news were almost exclusively centered on auto shows and motorsports events.

    1396310340

    Ah... let the April Fools' Day automotive jokes begin. Honda is kicking things off, following up on last year's Honda Hair joke with a prank video featuring the 2015 Honda Fit. It's called the Fit Kit, and as you might guess, it's a way to build your own version of the redesigned hatchback. ...

    Video: Seinfeld spoof Pedestrians In Bars Eating Toffee offers dead-on imitation
    1395852300

    If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then Jerry Seinfeld should feel pretty charmed right now. A new video series is taking his Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee shorts and turning up the snark by retooling it as Pedestrians in Bars Eating Toffee. Instead of Seinfeld meeting a buddy in ...

    Video: Mattress knocks man off bicycle, cushions the blow
    1395333840

    Frequent cyclists know that cars are among of the biggest dangers on the road. Many of drivers aren't very good at sharing the road, and that's exactly the case with this pickup driver. To make matters worse, its payload isn't even properly strapped down. However, that might have saved this ...

    Video: Schwarzenegger buys a tank, wants you to crush things with him for charity
    1394755200

    Arnold Schwarzenegger is one of the most charismatic guys around. He could take a ridiculous movie like Commando and turn it into an action classic with his sheer force of will. Despite being in semi-retirement, Schwarzenegger appears to be having more fun than ever. His latest stunt is raffling ...

    Video: Here's the backstory on Gordon's Pepsi prank from Okulski himself
    1394323860

    Last week, we all watched with enjoyment as Jalopnik editor Travis Okulski got epically pranked by a mustachioed Jeff Gordon. As we explained then, Gordon starred in a memorable "viral" ad for Pepsi, which saw the NASCAR champion disguise himself and take a car salesman on a wild test drive. It ...

    Video: Subaru getting creative in these two very different WRX STI viral videos
    1394238600

    Subaru is getting into viral videos with two new, radically different shorts to promote the 2015 WRX STI; both are pretty entertaining. They are certainly more interesting, from an enthusiast perspective, than the company's dog-oriented advertising campaign and sponsorship of the Puppy Bowl. The ...

    Video: Watch the Muppets go for ice cream in a Toyota
    1393365420

    Do Muppets drive? We're not sure it's necessarily a good idea, but it's been known to happen. Fozzy called his hibernating uncle's Studebaker a bear's "natural habitat," and Doctor Teeth wouldn't get the Electric Mayhem very far without his band's psychedelically painted school bus. But how about ...

    Video: Russian driver attempts pull start with trolley, hilarity ensues
    1393349400

    It's frustrating when your car won't start. It's doubly frustrating when it's due to a battery issue and triply troubling when you don't have a set of jumper cables handy. Provided you own a car with a manual transmission, though, push- or pull-starting is a last-ditch tactic for when you ...

    1392685080

    People do some weird things in their cars. Take these two gentlemen and their Honda Civic. Rather than tune in to satellite radio or hook up an iPod, they've opted to create their own music. YouTube musician Flula (in the passenger seat) and his friend Chester perform a cover of Blackstreet's ...

    Studio Dip is a design firm that specializes in products that make use of image recognition technology. Image recognition is pretty cool in practice, but pretty boring to read about online, generally speaking. Teaching fish how to drive, however... now that's the stuff on which this miracle we ...

    Report: Nissan will restore Craigslist Maxima, display at headquarters [w/video]
    1391868120

    Nissan showed that it had a great sense of humor when it bought Luke Aker's beat-up 1996 Nissan Maxima GLE for $1,400 back in December based solely on the quality of his tongue-in-cheek sales video. Aker's Maxima had been thoroughly driven. It needed a strap to keep its hood closed, had front ...
