“Who does that asshole think he is driving that big fucking tank?” Ever wonder this about the guy in the SUV that just cut you off on the road? You’re bound to find out right here as the SUV drivers of America are interrogated by a bogus television crew about their vehicle of choice in the parking lot of a Whole Foods Market. And at the end of this short film, you’re likely to find out that you’re assumption that the person behind the big fucking tank is an asshole to be correct.
When asked why an SUV, the interviewees offer answers little better than “you can run over curbs” or “it’s the new hip thing to replace the mini-van.” No one questioned admitted to actually using their sports utility vehicle for anything sportier than picking the kids up at school and when asked about the war in Iraq, each one of them stood next to their gas guzzling pieces of shit and declared their support of our troops. Yeah, I bet they do.
More depressing than funny, “TANKUP.US” is just another look at how shitty people in this country can be with their race to have the biggest dick on the road.
