WARNING: What you are about to read will forever change the way that you look at pictures of new cars.
There’s no arguing that pictures of new cars are pretty badass, but there’s one aspect that I just can’t seem to get past. Whenever a new car is pictured in motion, it requires a driver behind the wheel, which I completely understand, but most of the time the driver’s face is just an absolute eyesore that destroys any and all chances of enjoying the picture.
Wow. Look at those new headli—goddamnit. There he is.
There are a few automakers that attempt to hide the driver’s face in the shadows, but you can almost always spot it if you look hard enough. It’s one of those things where once you see it, it’s impossible to look away—like when you’re talking to someone who is oblivious to the fact that there is a piece of lettuce blanketing their teeth.
After scouring the internet for examples of this (which weren’t hard to find), I started to draw some conclusions about these people. I found that the majority of drivers tend to take a page out of Adam Sandler’s book, believing that a pair “magic sunglasses” will keep us from seeing them. Not true.
There are a small percentage of drivers brave enough to expose their entire face and provide us with a window to their soul. Most of the uncovered faces are men who seem to exude a strong sense of confidence. They have this smug look on their face that tells me they probably try and pick up women by flashing these photos around at bars.
Yeah, that’s me lurking in the shadows of a car that’s not even for sale yet. Not a big deal or anything.
The whole driver’s face thing probably isn’t an issue for most people, but it’s something that has bothered me for a while now. I have to ask, does anyone else have a similar problem with this? If not, there’s a good chance that you will the next time you come across a picture of a new car.
