UBER Sends Military Grade APCs To Pick Up Users

Partnered up with Call of Duty. This is cool:

Call of Duty ® Advanced Warfare and Uber partnered up with a powerful new class of rideshare vehicles: military-grade APCs. The Cyclone Armored Personnel Carriers featured combat armor plating, curb weight of 17,000 lbs, and 6.7L turbo diesel engines released 800 lb-ft of torque and took to the streets of LA during the week of E3.

Wow, Call of Duty has quite the marketing budget.  They have been talking about this for almost a year now I swear.  It still doesn’t come out until November 4th of this year.  Note to self: Invent something pre-teen parent’s basement dwellers throw money at.

Call-of-Duty-Advanced-WarfareIt would be cool if uber let you pick armored cars in general.  PreTHish CarGOOOO Comin’ threwwwwwwww  ahahah I slay myself.

Thoughts?  Would operate with despite the fact you probably think Advanced Warfare is going to be a pile of shit?

First, military grade APCs. Then no knock pick ups, where Uber takes you to the airport or work without you calling. This is the militarization of ride share.

Too bad they couldn’t get some of those old and busted up-armored short busses (Rhino was the nickname) they used to “ride share” between VBC and the Green zone. Much more realistic and incredibly ghetto.

Yo, what’s the retail on one of those things? Want.

Adding to my “Im’a win the lottery this week” shopping list.

Then I’m gonna no-knock the Playboy Mansion.

Who would operate with? Can I get a team?

Maybe Instructor Zero. You know that crazy fool would be down with this diabolical plan.
