Employees Only - Brand Name Goods

Ahh, the joys of car buying.

Today's strip was actually inspired by the game Split/Second • Velocity by Disney Interactive Studios. I'm a fan of good racing games, but like many games you don't always get exactly what you are expecting with the cars. They may look like a Chevrolet Camero or the Bugatti Veyron, but in the game it doesn't tell you that's what they are. Instead your told it's a "Ryback Clydesdale" or something else you've never heard of. I can only assume that when they were buying the cars for the game they fell prey to some wily car salesman peddling foreign knock-offs.

Hey, we've all been suckered from time to time. It's just a shame to see Disney be cheap about which cars we get to blow up and ram into bridges in the game.
