Take one very small Mitsubishi i-MiEV electric minicar with a flower decal on the side.

Fold in three severe Belgian elderly ladies with disapproving looks.

Incorporate one blatantly obvious occurrence of plumber butt in public.

Then add one young motorcycle police officer to the resulting mix.

Stir to a one-minute boil with a mildly hiphop backing track.

The result: A surprisingly amusing ad for a Belgian car rental service's new electric fleet.

Or as the Google Translate version of the YouTube caption says, "What happens when you put three plucky tomatoes in an electric car?"

What do you think: Is this a better way to market electric cars than than polar bears or even romantic young couples?

Leave us your thoughts in the Comments below.

Again back to Google Translate for the ad's closing line: "Electric drive with cambio...you're so get away."

(It reads much better in the original: Je bent er zo mee weg.)
