L.A., beware: It's 'Scarface' on wheels

Tricked-out Dodge Charger SRT8 promotes the poular video game.

Scarface car

As if Southern California highways aren't perilous enough, drivers will now get to duck a tricked-out Dodge Charger SRT8 promoting that manliest of games, "Scarface: The World is Yours." The car (cough, publicity stunt) is being driven around by Roger Lloyd, chief operating officer of retail video game franchise Play N Trade. Images from the game digitally wrap around the car, and it has a Sony PlayStation 2 and wireless controls. Eyes on the road, Lloyd.

Yeah, we know promo cars aren't that unusual. But we can't help but wonder which other tech execs we'll see riding around in promo buggies. Sun's Jonathan Schwartz in a Sun Fire X4500 car perhaps?
