Book Trailer Thursday: Dan Gets a Minivan

Book trailer first and homage to MTV’s Pimp My Ride second, this video for Dan Zevin’s Dan Gets a Minivan pleases with swelling beats and captain’s seats.

Sipping a juicebox and spouting universal truths, like how the coolness of one’s ride is best measured in cupholders, and how a minivan can also function as a vacation home, Zevin earns suburban street cred in spades. Lacking nothing but an appearance from Xzibit himself, this trailer is an ode to the seven-seater; families who are stuffed into their sedans will be moved to turn minivan fantasies into reality; city-dwellers might even believe they could parallel park the giant with ease.

The sense of humor and laid-back writing style Zevin promises with this trailer is, according to reviewer David Pitt, “highly recommended to fans of Dave Barry, Roy Blount, and Bill Geist.”

  1. Xzibit would be proud. He would also add, “Yo dawg, I heard you like cup holders. So I put cup holders in your cup holders, so you can drink juice boxes while you drink juice boxes”.
