Cruzin Cooler

Recently while walking in River North I thought I saw a guy driving around on what looked like a beer cooler with wheels. Yes, it is just as dumb as it sounds, especially since it is about 2 inches off the ground and goes really slow.

This time I was able to take a quick photo (sorry for the lousy shot) to prove that I wasn't just imagining how stupid this is... and then when I got home I looked it up on the internet.

The name of the product is "cruzin cooler". Here is a link to their web site.

Damn are we Americans getting lazy and fat if we can't even carry a cooler...

Was the guy handicapped or paralyzed so he had to ride something or did it look like he chose to ride it? Also, did you have a half black and white filter on this photo or did you photoshop it?

Actually I shot it out a cafe window into bright sunshine.

I think he chose to ride it - I have seen these before - but if he didn't then I am a bad man.

On the cruzin cooler web site no one is handicapped so I never even thought of that

Think that you could get a DUI driving that thing? Of course I am making the assumption that the guy driving does not have it full of bottled water.
