Absurdly Long Limousine

Name Space:
Main
Page Type:
Trope

Usually featured in comedy works, absurdly long limousines are Exactly What It Says on the Tin. Very, very long limousine belonging to some rich jerkass. Of course, main hero or heroine will land inside (usually more or less forcefully) at least once. Sometimes the absurdly long vehicle will have nonsensical features like a hot-tub or a bowling alley attached.

Examples:

Anime Film
  • In The Mask, the title character arrives at the Coco Bongo club in such a car.
Music Video Real Life Television Western Animation
  • Done in a lot of Looney Tunes and Tex Avery shorts. Also done once or twice in The Flintstones. Often the gag would be further reinforced with a secretary or switchboard operator at the halfway point of the limousine.

    Two Real Life examples in the Limosine Challenge on Top Gear. These included an absurdly stretched compact car, and a similarly stretched convertible. All of the home-made limos could be considered a combination of Awesome Yet Impractical, So Bad Its Good, and So Bad Its Horrible.

    @AFP: I'd think that would go in Television, even if it IS a reality show.

    A lot of Fridge Logic is abound in such vehicles. How the heck do they navigate the streets?

    Some cartoons showed them bending at 90 degree angles at streetcorners, I seem to recall.

    The Merthmobile Limo is normal-size for a limousine. If anything, it's merely an absurdly long AMC Pacer; for a limo, that length is nothing out of the ordinary.

    A good way to show a Fiction 500 character.
