A garage has made a hilarious compilation of customers’, “my broken car sounds like a …” And, they were right every time!
If you’ve ever had mechanical trouble with your car, we guarantee the first thing you said to your mechanic was, “my broken car sounds like a …”
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. Lending non-human traits to an inanimate object like a car is known as anthropomorphism. And it’s the easiest and most effective way to explain something you couldn’t otherwise describe.
To illuminate the point, a story on Drive has featured a YouTube channel in the US called Just Rolled In, with hilarious video of exactly that.
It’s a series of car problems described by the customers using ,“my broken car sounds like …” And in every instance they are hilariously spot-on.
Not only is the video a great laugh, but it’s also an interesting insight into the problems experienced by the cars featured.
