Unless you are jumping into your parent’s clunker with the bumper sticker “Honk If Parts Fall Off,” you may have never drawn any weird stares from others in a parking lot.

A Louisiana education reform ad showcases just that, as a man gets into a tiny toy Ford Mustang GT convertible — with the license plate “GIDDYUP” — waving to coworkers looking on in disbelief or perhaps with pity.

The video ad is part of the education reform campaign — “A school that fits” — by Pelican Institute in New Orleans. You can watch the video below.

The narrator states, “Sometimes, no matter how hard we try, things just don’t fit. The same can be said about education in Louisiana, which works for some families — but not others. But what if there were a better way to make sure that every child has access to a school that fits them?”

The video ad concludes with the man in the toy car attempting to turn onto the freeway – obviously a move that warrants a visit from officers on patrol after a short anticlimactic chase.

As Louisiana continues to revamp its school districts, parents of 1.1 million children living in the state can pick from public schools, charter schools, magnet schools, private schools, online classes, and homeschooling.

This video communicates that every child learns differently. As a result, each one requires a different fit to succeed, as does every driver with a car.
