“I am still cool”

Possibly the best public transport advertisement ever, courtesy of the Danes. I am so impressed with that parking lot doughnut.

    Thank you, this made me laugh out loud!!!
    I often use public transport… but I don’t know what a parking lot cookie is. 😦
    Parking lot doughnut? Ah, it’s a car spin, isn’t it?
    Sorry if it’s an stupid question.

      I wrote “cookie” at first and have no idea why — must have had browser cookies on my mind. It’s a doughnut, and you’re right: it means spinning your car in circles (and usually burning off a lot of tire rubber). And I have never seen it done with a bus!

      But your question is not stupid. Slang doesn’t translate well, and is the last thing they teach us in foreign language classes…

        Thank you. My English is a disaster, but I love to learn new things 🙂
        Yes, the doughnut is more self-explaining than the cookie!

          Could have been rubber chip cookie? ^ 😉

          They forgot to talk about the nice odor, especially when a passenger didn’t really appreciate the doughnut… 😮
          burnt rubber + v…. smell : Yah! Still Cool! 😀

            Oh, yes, a rubber chip cookie! :D)
            In a trip to the US, my aunt was asked what she wanted for dessert. The waitress offered her a platter with a selection and asked her by touching one item, which my aunt refused instantly, so the waitress touched the next one, which was equally refused by my aunt, amazed by the lack of hygiene. The process continued until a friend explained to her that they were rubber samples, not the actual dessert.

            One never knows; these Americans are very odd people 😉

            However, I think there wasn’t any odor problem in this particular case.

            LOL! That’s a great story! I’m going to remember that one.

          • Lilaine says:

            Héhé! 😀 We have them faux gâteaux here, too!
            Too bad your aunt didn’t ask to taste the sample cookies. I would have, just to see the waitress’ face! 🙂
            And there was no odor because they didn’t bake them… I mean, I guess they didn’t… 😮
            You never know with these odd American people. 😉

    I am 90% sure that the bus doing the doughnut is completely CGI. Trust me. I have a very good sense of analysis on these things. Sorry 🙂

    Thankyou, this advert will now wend it’s way to my scattered family and friends. What a wonderful deep voice doing the voice over.

    I have googled the bus add, and it looks as tho the bus was really doing the doughnut, reality is cool.
