Create the Next Pied Piper While Renting Erlich’s Aviato Ford Escape

Through the ups and downs, twists and turns, firings and hirings in the spectacularly funny HBO show Silicon Valley, there have been two, maybe three consistencies: Richard’s extreme awkwardness, Erlich’s condescension, and the Aviato company car, a 2006 Ford Escape. And now, you can drive it.

“Before Turo, the only way to get this close to a vehicle of such storied history was – well, there wasn’t one,” the rental listing on Turo exaggerates. “But [Erlich] Bachman has generously agreed to release the beast from the driveway of his game-changing incubator, and let the masses experience the incomparable luxury and pure-adrenaline thrill that is driving a car emblazoned with the word ‘Aviato.’ ‘Aviato.’ ‘Aviato.'”

If you’re a fan of the show and Erlich, this is actually pretty awesome, especially considering the $49 per day rate is actually affordable. When’s the last time that happened?

Except there’s one problem. “This cannot be emphasized enough. You will be charged $250 for any smoking, even marijuana,” the ad states. That makes me think this entire thing is a hoax, because if it were truly Erlich’s car, he’s probably have a bong stashed away in some secret compartment, along with three different strains to choose from. *skeptical eyes*
