uber parody video toronto

Someone made a parody video of Toronto's taxi protest

The most dramatic moment of Wednesday's taxi protest in Toronto has already made it to YouTube in the form of a parody video. Posted yesterday afternoon, it's already amassed 80,000 views with its clever dig at the cab driver who was dragged some 50 feet by an Uber driver trying to escape a volatile situation.

While one can't help but think at how dire things might have gone for Suntharesan Kanagasabai, given that he was unharmed in the incident, the melee seems like it's fair game for the parody treatment, if only to dramatize just how wild the tension between official cabs and UberX has become in Toronto.

Posted by Peter Miller, this video dreams up a new app called - you guessed it - Uber Drag. The fake promotional video touts the apps numerous benefits, like "no opening doors, no awkward interactions with the driver...you just grab on and go."

Yup, sounds about right!
