So I am watching TV the other evening and this commercial for something called CarLashes came on. Per my usual jaded view on the ridiculous, I watched the whole commercial...and when it ended, I said "are you serious?"


Yes, they were serious. People really ARE buying CarLashes. Unbeknownst to me, Jay Leno, Rachel Ray and even CNN have featured them.

So I asked the question, what would possess someone to buy them. So I did some research on the CarLashes Facebook page and found that a lot of the people who buy them give their car's a personality and name their car. For example:

Then I realized it gives people a good excuse to post pictures of their beloved automobiles in "cute" situations.

Kindred Spirits
Covered in snow

Then there are the people who want to "Autopromorphize" (if that was a word, it would mean to make your car look like an animal)

The reindeer
The leopard

If this is something that tickles your fancy, the prices range from $30 up to $70. You can even bejewel them.

Is this silly, sure, but with a lot of the other stresses in life, seeing someone with CarLashes around Shreveport or Bossier City would be a nice stress reliever.


It happened, I was at the Wal-Mart in Bossier City on Airline, south of 220 and here is what I found:

Notice the Caprice chassis with the Mercedes logo?
