PR-my Of One: The Mamas & Papas Urbo Assault Vehicle

mamas_papas_urbo.jpg

Here is the new Mamas & Papas Urbo stroller, a shiny all-you-mini-um travel system that is just a couple of machine gun turrets shy of Shi Jinsong's Na Zha Strollers Of Mayhem.

Here is a commercial for the new Mamas & Papas Urbo stroller. In the longstanding tradition of the genre, it is rather insane.

update: Oh no, the M&P PRs have closed their YouTube account. Fortunately, someone has reloaded the video:

I'm surprised Bugaboo was able to register a trademark on what is clearly a universal phenomenon among stroller promoters.

Looks heavy and in its folded state still quite large vis a vis a MacLaren.

What a useless video. I was trying to find out about this stroller and I can't get any information on it. It's too dark to see the stroller well in the video and the way it does rapid close ups makes it impossible to know what you're looking at. My take away from the video is that this is a stroller for people who have yet to have their kid and are still worried about what they're going to look like pushing the stroller. Other than it looks kind of cool but also very hard, mechanical, and sterile; I got nothing from this.
