Man oh, man… This isn’t even art imitating life, rather a [Netflix] video series reporting it.

The first episode is on Volkswagen… supposed to mean the “People’s Car” in German… yeah, but which “people” (probably ‘The 1%’) is it really ‘for’?

Interesting talk. VERRRRY interesting. Actually started out thinking that the folks on here would downplay the sexual aspects of this Netflix series based on the Spike Lee joint.

Def gotta check this out!

(Yoooo, there was a comment on the Tube on this that was like, “Pan-sexual: if she’s good with a pan, then we can get sexual.” Bwaaahahaaa!)
