Video: This Live Action Version Of Wacky Races Is A Car Commercial, Of Course

Though I wouldn’t ever praise the originals too wildly I’ve often enjoyed latter day reinterpretations of Hanna Barbera toons, from certain special episodes Johnny Bravo to Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law and most definitely including Scooby Doo! Mystery Incorporated.

Here’s another, recreating the Wacky Races in live action, and CG of course, for a Peugot commercial.

And that was supposed to make the Peugot look good? I’d much rather have a ride in Penelope Pitstop’s pink and shiny Compact Pussycat.**

Thanks to FOG for the embed.

*Was that ambiguous enough for you? Jeez. I can promise you it was literally true, though, or I’d never have said it.
