Electric vehicles are all well and good, but how many also feature the ability to zig-zag across terrain like a crab? Hummer's new EV does just that, and they have the perfect team to show it off: Los Angeles Lakers legend LeBron James and a computer-generated crab.
The latter—brought to life by the team at Framestore—steals the show as it convinces James to hit CrabWalk again. Scored by Missy Elliot's 'Get Ur Freak On', it's a barmy but brilliant demonstration of what the truck's capable of. However, there's another mode that James wants to show off.
With the crab and his pals all buckled up (even crustaceans must wear seatbelts), James activates Watts to Freedom mode, which lowers the entire truck and increases acceleration. Its practicality is suspect at best, but worth it for a blast of 'Immigrant Song' by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.
