Welcome to the Hooniverse Classic Captions Post. This is a series of posts that are set to run this time each week, so let’s review the premise; I search for images that were used by the car companies in their print advertising or brochures, and it is your job to provide a humorous, snarky, or thought provoking caption that is some how tied in with the image. This weeks image has a very unusual creep factor, but we’ll get to that in a moment…
Last Week, we had an image of a Truckster on a Beach (Yes, again!), and the responses came in fast and furious. It was commentor dwbf11 who came up with a very clever caption for this image, and it went like this: “Dammit Clarissa! You’re only supposed to do the fake lasso arm-extension thing on the Rodeo photo shoot!” Very good, but it didn’t receive enough votes this time.
The winner this time was from Skitter, and I really didn’t care for the tone of this particular caption, but I let that slide anyway: “Investigators later determined the vehicle was deliberately driven into deep water, the surfboards were mounted incorrectly for floatation, and the blonde drowned because she couldn’t get the tailgate open.” This was the top vote-getter, probably because of the Blonde joke, but I know you can do better Skitter!
It’s now time to take a look at this weeks image. Instead of a beach image, I thought I would go in a different direction, with this advertising image of a 1970 Dodge Adventurer Pickup in a park like setting. I have to admit, the couple pictured scare the bejeezus out of me, like I’m not sure what planet they are from. The ad copy states that the Dodge Adventurer is the pickup designed to lead a double life… How very Twilight Zone… I’m sure you can come up with a great caption for this interesting image.

You have the next five days to come up with a great caption. The editors will deliberate entries, and after watching re-runs of the Twilight Zone (or the Outer Limits for that matter), we will pronounce a winner. So, get to work and create you’re own caption for this Bizarre Image.
