My Car Plays The Lambada – But Only While Reversing

Many of the vehicles here make a variety of sounds. Usually it’s honking, but there are others as well: some cars also make sounds while reversing, to let people know they indeed are.

In surprisingly many of these cars, the warning sound they play while backing up is… the Lambada. The 8-bit version of it, that is.

So I’m sitting here thinking: do the cars come by default with these tunes? Or does someone actually sit in their silently reversing car, pondering: “You know what would be totally sweet? If my car would play the Lambada while backing up. Yes.. hell yes, it would. I think I’ll have that installed first thing tomorrow morning.”

It’s actually quite amusing, if not ludicrous. Maybe not a bad thing at all.
