Jon Cryer is best known for playing Alan Harper for 12 mirthless seasons of Two and a Half Men. Clearly, he feels a little guilty about that, and is doing his best to offset his sitcom’s hacky emissions by promoting eco-friendly vehicles—like the Chevy Volt.

In a recent series of tweets, Cryer noted that the high cost of gasoline (close to $5 a gallon in California) doesn’t really bother him, because of the fact that he made millions of dollars starring in a terrible sitcom owns an electric Volt:

This, of course, led to several jokes from Cryer’s twitter followers about how his sitcom character Alan used to own a Volvo and fill it with gasoline $3 at a time, and Cryer of course retweeted all of these jokes, because they were all so very funny. But Cryer was serious about his Volt-love, encouraging followers to purchase one of the 2015 models that are currently on clearance, thanks to the upcoming release of the 2016 Chevy Volt:

Then the Pretty in Pink star recommended pairing your new Volt with a wireless charger from Plugless Power:

Cryer went to great lengths to make it clear that neither of his endorsements for the Volt or the Plugless Power unit were “sponsored” posts—he’s just a genuine fan.

We can’t say that we feel the same about Cryer’s misogynistic television show, but at least his taste in vehicles is admirably clean.

    I’m all for the Voit. I have the 2014 and its a great car. Plugless on the other hand is a waste of money. It nullifies almost all of your savings using an electric car and it wastes electricity lost the inefficient induction transfer. You may as well go back to a full on ICE gas guzzler. Buy a ClipperCreek (Best low cost chargers IMHO) and just plug it in every night. Its not that hard of a process. Get a retractable cord manager and hang it from the ceiling of your garage just above the charge port… And here I thought Cryer was the smart one of the 2 and 1/2…

      Driving a new Mitsubishi Mirage will likely be cheaper than driving a Volt but it’s not always about the money. Wireless charging is a great convenience that for you is not worth the money but for some it is, that’s why they sell. Insulting the mental capacity of a person because he likes a convenient product is just stupid. Why don’t you come back when you are a multi million dollar earning TV star and can continue with the insults?

      Several years ago I often rented the Prius it cities when I traveled. It always seemed counter intuitive to me that it didn’t have a plug (you mean I have to run the engine to charge it up?!). Plus the Prius always had flat spots in its acceleration. Go Volt!

      Now you’re just spreading FUD like the people who claim electric cars create as much pollution as gasoline burning ICE vehicles. “Plugless is ~12% less efficient than corded L2 30amp 240V charging systems and ~7% less efficient than corded Level 1 charging systems.” So if you’ve been charging with the L1 cord that is included with the car, you waste an additional 7% of your energy using plugless instead.
