That's two and half minutes of my life I'll never get back.

I did notice that the car has those headlight covers that make the lights look oval shaped.

Tom, did you fall down the YouTube rabbit hole? And I have a hard time believing Mr. Bliss can fit in a Boxster. You dig?

Well. I can see the right little 17 year old K-Pop gal driving that car. Or even some interesting track graphics.

But yeah, that big giant smurf dude and his posse don't look like the right fit.

"I went from sleeping on couches to driving the Porsches", as he jestures towards the Boxster! BWAAAHHHAAAHHHAAA!! The cheapest Porsche ever! HAAHA!! Too funny.

Just to be clear before you all get the flame throwers out, I own a Boxster too! Probably the only Porsche I can afford, and I love it! I just don't go around using it as a prop and posing like I have tons of cash.

Aren't our hiphop artists not getting tired of the identical content format and exact same body moves... what's wrong with limbo dancing? Bring back the staying-alive travoltas!!

Yeah, if you look bad XXXX crazy, you gotta behave like it. Those kids uhm gansta autotune artists actually want to break free, but they can't. The strictly have to follow the directions of their producers. The only way to express themselves are those sublime between the lines messages uhm lyrics. They are poets…

i hope
"only dead fish swim with the stream"

limo dancing? Travolta? sounds like plan
or how about a little Beach Boy Flair

Limited talent produces limited output.

Some good ideas though... imagine, a modern hiphop band re-introducing that infamous John Travolta's hip-swing, tra-tra-tra-tra (machine gun sounds heard)! Promise they'll be famous worldwide and cash in millions in Trademarks & Labels. Success guaranteed

So, I follow a lot of crazy ass Facebook car groups. This car popped up in one of them and I had to chase down the story... and found our boy Derrick Bliss! At that point, it was simply too good not to share. I mean, look closely at the car - and then look at him. WTF?

I really got to get out of this quarantine....
