    Well done, great filming. But can you explain the title to me? Why would you rather not drive a Prius?

  2. Waylon Hussein Lewis says:

    Yah, and whose interview of McKibben was that? elephant’s? Oh.

    Seriously…gorgeous video. As I said on Facebook where this video is also posted, you are Fellini in the makin’. Brilliant. Got to use your powers to self-liberate all sentient beings!

    Simple. Does a Prius have those lines. Does it make those noises. Does it instill passion.

    A Prius for better or worse is an appliance on wheels – not so much a function of design, beauty or grace. I would argue that I will have this Alfa far longer than any person will have their Prius which they ‘love’ until a newer model comes along.

    Respectfully, the filmmaker.
