A video shot in L.A. pokes fun at some common passenger tropes, including the too-drunk weekend clubbers and the fussy backseat drivers. A short video from Whelmed Productions follows a series of Uber passengers getting around Los Angeles. There's the three girls on their way to a club while chugging 'Gatorade' and trying to light up cigarettes, and the picky passenger who rides with her earbuds in, only talking to the driver to complain about his driving. There's also the passenger who seems really excited about taking an Uber for perhaps the first time, asking all the most tired questions: "How long have you been an Uber driver?" and "What's your craziest Uber story?" (Full disclosure: Okay, I'll admit it, I've asked these questions, too!)
