Trains: The Most Efficient, Economical and Best Investment for America

A funny new video takes a look at the issue of high-speed rail and how it compares to automobile and airline travel. The extra kicker is that the video is produced through the lens of the popular Mad Men television show.

Are you tired of all the knobs, levers and gizmos in your car? Also, you would do open-heart surgery on yourself, so why are you driving yourself? Trains are the most efficient, economical and best investment. It’s obvious.

Those are a couple quotes from this video that cleverly covers the issue of transportation and how high-speed rail boast clear advantages over other means of transportation, and it does it all through the Mad Men scope. Enjoy.
