March 21 (UPI) -- A special effects company created an SUV that uses hydraulics to rise several feet and drive over California traffic -- but unfortunately, it's a one of a kind.
Thinkmodo, the special effects firm behind 2014's viral "Devil Baby Attack" video, created a vehicle that resembles a Jeep Cherokee Wagon SUV, but with an added feature that allows the driver to push a button to have the vehicle rise several feet in the air and widen its wheel stance to drive over other cars in a traffic jam.
The one-of-a-kind "Hum Rider" vehicle was created to promote Verizon Telematic's Hum, which features a dongle placed in a car's OBD port to give diagnostics, roadside assistance, location, speed tracking, and geo-fencing capabilities.
The Hum Rider weighs about 8,500 pounds, nearly double the weight of a standard Jeep Cherokee, and includes over 300 feet of hydraulic lines.
A video posted to YouTube shows the SUV in action on a Lancaster, Calif., street.
"In many respects, [the Hum Rider is] a bit of a metaphor, taking the ordinary driving experience and making it extraordinary. Kind of what we're illustrating with that crazy car that drives over cars," Verizon VP of Marketing Jay Jaffin told Mashable.
