Driving by gender: Vive la difference

Comment on this story
IOL mot pic apr9 How Girls Drive 1 . Watch how a guy and a girl react when the same things happen to them behind the wheel.

One of the cornerstones of humour - any kind of humour - is the ability to laugh at ourselves, our failings and, most of all, our gender stereotypes.

Which is where Los Angeles-based production company JLE comes in, with the latest in their clever series of short videos highlighting the difference between how guys do things and how girls do them - by stretching them almost to the point of absurdity.


The video puts comedy talents John Elerick and Alison Trumbull in the same car, driving the same route and having much the same things happen to them while behind the wheel.

The clever part is the difference in their reactions and, if they don't have you giggling, either it's too close to the bone or you don't have a sense if humour.
