Film director Chris Paine ("Who Killed The Electric Car?") was on The Daily Show this week, which gave host Jon Stewart a chance to poke some fun at car companies ("[They] are notoriously hesitant to advertise their products"). Paine talked about his personal experience owning an EV1, how good or a car it was and how GM took the cars away and crushed them in the desert. If you've seen the movie, then you won't learn much new information (but you would miss Stewart's quip about the little "give us our car back" light), but it's free and pretty funny. If you haven't seen the film, then you can get most of the story in six-minutes. You can watch the clip on YouTube.
