Best mental image ever

From a run-down of this year's Superbowl ads in Slate:

An ad for the Toyota Tundra shows the pickup driving through a tunnel of flames and emerging unscathed. I very much hope, for the sake of Tundra drivers, that this functionality never comes into play. Separately: I am puzzled by the announcer's contention that "truckers know towing 10,000 pounds up a steep grade ain't good for your tranny." I'm picturing a post-op sex change patient standing in the pickup's bed, hands on hips, displeased with the truck's towing power. What's that you say? He means transmission? Oh. I suppose that would make more sense.
The fusion of faux masculinity inherent in a truck ad with an inadvertent reference to the transgender community fills my heart with unbridled glee. "Ain't good for your tranny," indeed.

  1. Well, you know grinding your gears with your stick ain't good for your tranny either.
