This light-hearted album consists of 67 songs meant to be used as car commercials.  Almost every song is 30 sec (a couple are 1 minute), and they genre jump from track to track.  Much more experimental and multi-instrumental than the previous Essex Chanel albums.  This album takes on a new meaning when put in a playlist or on an iPod, because they almost act as a real commercial break when played between longer songs and they pop up for 30 seconds unexpectedly. A BONUS EP was released 3.6.2007 that contains 7 more car commercials recorded with the original 67 that didn't make it on the album.
