Have you heard of or used the new on-demand car services such as Uber, Hailo, Lyft, Gett, and Whisk?
If you have, you're ready for a new service with a real heimishe touch. It's called Schlep. Too bad that it's not real, but a parody created by Tyler Gildin of Elite Daily.
Run by Jewish mothers and based on Jewish geography, Schlep provides a nice Jewish mother as an entertaining chauffeur who, in exchange for driving you, will offer her daughter's hand in marriage, ask you to pick up her dry-cleaning, offer you a free lunch (straight out of her grocery bags), and have you squeeze in the backseat in between two pre-bar-mitzvah kids screaming the lyrics to pop songs.
(A SPECIAL NOTE FOR NEW EMAIL SUBSCRIBERS: THE VIDEO MAY NOT BE VIEWABLE DIRECTLY FROM THE EMAIL THAT YOU GET EACH DAY ON SOME COMPUTERS AND TABLETS. YOU MUST CLICK ON THE TITLE AT THE TOP OF THE EMAIL TO REACH THE JEWISH HUMOR CENTRAL WEBSITE, FROM WHICH YOU CLICK ON THE PLAY BUTTON IN THE VIDEO IMAGE TO START THE VIDEO.)
