Funny English Video Ten
"Should we pick him up?"

(These videos are best viewed with Internet Explorer.)
Thirty or forty years ago, many young people travelled around the United States by hitchhiking - they just walked along the road and put out their thumbs as if to say "Are you going my way?" and some people would pick them up and "give them a lift" at least part way to their destination (where they want to go). Sometimes, however, the friendly-looking person trying to "hitch a ride" turned out to be thief or even a killer.

In this commercial, the person looking for a ride has a big axe (a tool for cutting down trees) in his hand. He looks like a killer in so many horror movies! Of course, nobody should pick him up. The driver of the car, however, notices he not only has an axe, he also has a case of beer in his hands. Well, if he has beer, then we should pick him up, shouldn't we? His wife disagrees, but the husband wins the first argument

In the end they see another hitchhiker, this time with a chainsaw in his hand! Another typical horror movie killer. Of course, he too is carrying beer. What should they do?
