Double-take Arms of Mystery

What the...?

Presenting the Double-take Arms of Mystery!

Essentially these are fake arms that flip out the side of the driver’s seat. These arms would give the appearance of the driver sitting with his arms crossed behind his head, in a stretching pose. Whilst his real arms are safely guiding the steering wheel; out of view from passers by.

Why? It confuses people, causes gasps of awe and generally draws attention to the silly antics of the driver.

If the police pull you over, just share the comedy of your Double-take arms with them. I'm sure they will want a pair of their own...

       "I want ..." isn't the most convincing introduction it an idea, but I can see what you're saying ... driving with a paper bag on your head will accomplish the same thing ... (with shameless self-promotional link to a paper bag)

       It's a dumb title actually, but it's still a bunable idea. I am not sure why. +

       I want arms that stick out of each side of the car and flap up and down in synch.

       I once saw a car moving that had no driver in it whatsoever! It turned out the guy was bending over in the front seat. Then he popped up again.   

       This gets me thinking: A neat joke would be to put a transparent window below the steering wheel together with an array of mirrors, allowing the driver to crouch on the floor out of sight and still be able to drive.

       Or, you could just have a hat with arms that flop down to your shoulders. Easier to hide when the police come.
