Daryl From OnCar

Winner: “Best Comedy Short”
2009 LA Comedy Shorts Film Festival!

Thanks judges!


When Ted locked his keys in the car, he thought he was screwed. Fortunately, his brand-new fully-loaded 2007 ½ Domestic Minivan came equipped with OnCar™ – the state-of-the-art on-board navigation/ concierge/emergency help system with built-in hands-free wireless social networking and analog curb-feelers. Within moments, Daryl, Ted’s customer service ambassador, had unlocked the car remotely and saved the day.


Ted soon discovered that OnCar™ could do far more than advertised. One touch of the user-friendly red button and Daryl could get Ted virtually anything he wanted. It was like Knight Rider for the mid-life-crisis crowd. Ted considered Daryl one of the family, until Daryl became psycho-obsessive and meddlesome – like one of the family. And when Ted tried to get Daryl to back off, he discovered that you don’t mess with the man from OnCar™…


Daryl from OnCar™: a story of customer service gone horribly right.
