Tom Petty cutouts give weirdest tour of D.C. ever

(Screengrab, YouTube.)

In a confluence of several things that don’t quite make sense, the Petty Cabs take a tour of “The hottest spots in Washington D.C.,” which inexplicably includes Heller’s Bakery, Occupy DC, the Chinatown arch, Sticky Fingers Bakery, the sidewalk in front of a Fuddrucker’s, the Tivoli Theater, a dog park and the Metro. The people who appear behind the Petty Cabs are either confused, embarrassed, or just glad for the chance to play with toys while drinking beer.

It’s not the first time the video’s creator Andy Rothwell has sent remote control cars driving around DC. A video he filmed six months ago and sent to New Columbia Heights blog follows the same story line, just with no Tom Pettys along for the ride.

Maura Judkis covers culture, food, and the arts.
