Wheels

Does anyone recall these seriously cheesy ads for a motorized wheelchair called the Hoveround?
Now, it's been replaced by a newer untuned voice-over, but the original 'Go go go in my Hoveround' remains as haunting as ever. It echoes in my brain every time I see the ad.
What do those Hovering Seniors do for entertainment? Well, there's always adventures like this one, I guess.
"Jerome and Darlene Kilian began arguing inside the restaurant and were asked to leave. Once in the parking lot, Jerome refused to give his wife the car keys, so she began chasing him around the parking lot in her wheelchair.

Restaurant employees said it took her just seconds to make her way across the parking lot.

At one point, the husband hid behind a neighboring Dunkin' Donuts, which is under construction, while his wife "zipped" around looking for him.

Restaurant employees said this went on for about 15 minutes before Pennsylvania State Police arrived and charged the couple with disorderly conduct."
Maybe Mr. Tom Kruse (no, unfortunately not the Tom Cruise), CEO of Hoveround should audition these two for a Mission Impossible style ad for his Hoveround chairs. That would be an instant cult classic!
