yeah, saw that. Not bad.

I think the Segway promo video is one of the funniest things I have ever seen.

Usually the things in life that aren't supposed to be funny are the best material for laughs. That video looks like one of those satirical commercials they did on the old Saturday Night Live. I kept expecting to see Woody Allen buzz past one one. I love the shot of the older woman rolling the thing up a ramp into the back of her wagon.

They might have to "macho it up" a bit; maybe some mag wheels, racing stripes, and a good, loud noise. They'll really get dorkafied if helmets are required, though.
