One of the funniest series of ads on TV today are the Dodge truck ads featuring a pair of rednecks who long for the good life driving a Dodge Ram outfitted with a Hemi V-8 engine. I reckon that Dodge Hemi is one powerful peice of equipment. I've taken a real liking to the two hapless rednecks who fail again and again to outrace the Dodge truck and its amused driver, even when he is towing a large boat with Hemi dual outboard motors. I wish they'd appear in a movie or a TV sitcom because they have taken on a life of their own over and above the funny Dodge truck ads. Recently my sister was taking me for a drive in her new Nissan Pathfinder Armada truck/SUV, one impressive vehicle. We stopped at a redlight and I kid you not, someone pulled up beside us and asked us to roll down our windows. Then the jokester yelled, "Hey! That thing got a Hemi?" just like the rednecks in the ad. That was so funny. We both burst out laughing, but we didn't try to drag race.
