Mixed Message Hummmmmmm?

OK, tell me what you think. What do you think when you think Hummer? Like big huge blocky tank-like car, kind of the macho car of all macho cars? Can’t see that well, so you just run over things? Big civilianized macho military vehical, right? Very masculine, right?

Now. . . think Raspberry Lipstick Pink Hummer. I mean, like, what is the message? Honest to God, I saw this Pink-Purple Hummer this morning, too fast for me to take a photo to PROVE it to you, but I saw it, I swear I saw it.

So is it some girl’s Hummer? Or is it a guy saying “I’m so macho I can even drive a pink Hummer and no one is going to question my masculinity?”

(Yeh, this is the kind of triviality I ponder in my spare time.)

UPDATE: OMG, I googled it and there are more! It’s an official car, it’s called the Barbie Hummer. Holy Smokes!


I think the one I saw was more raspberry pink than this one, and a full sized Hummer.

  7. Wer3y – It IS big, like a big packet of pink bubble gum. But is it a girl car, or a very macho guy car?

  8. I have seen that pink hummer. By the way, whenever you see a car that LOOKS like it should be a girls car (colour, bling, etc), then 99.9% chance it is a guy’s car. Including the hummer.

  10. EniGma – Haven’t seen you for a while and I am happy to see you again! NO WAY. Bling on a GUY’s car? Do they know who BARBIE is???

    SWAIR – yep! Pretty much what I thought. When I was telling my husband he asked who was driving. I told him I was so shocked, I didn’t even look!

  11. A pink hummmer, eh? Not all men can carry it off well just as not all men can get away wearing a Salvatore Ferragamo golden silk tie on a pink shirt.
