Car as Skateboard Part 5: Jeep Compass

Commercial with a robot riding a Jeep Compass like a skateboard.

This should really be part 1 I think. This is probably the first car as skateboard commercial I ever saw back in 2006, but I was unable to record it until now. This Jeep is so bad ass that it causes a ball of rolling jumk to follow until it spontaneously assembles into a robot and proceeds to ride the car like a skateboard. Automobile manufacturers are ever safety conscious, and so is the robot. He takes the time to rip a dome off the top of a nearby building to wear as a helmet. Quite frightening, actually. I wouldn’t want to have to worry about property damage suits everytime I drove my car. Watch the video and learn about the robot’s old schoool roots after the jump.

Jeep Compass Commercial – Crazed robot rides a Jeep like a skateboard.

The robot is obviously from Dogtown, because not only does he high jump, but he lays down a big carve while dragging his hand on the concrete wave. Conahan says the rolling ball of junk in the beginning is a reference to a Japanese video game called Katamari Damacy.

  1. I have Katamari Damacy and it is the single most addictive game ever. Well, besides THPS, but rolling around a ball of junk never seemed like so much fun!
