The last time I got one of those, it was because the driver had taken a slightly longer route so that he could pitch me and my colleagues his NFTs. I refrained from asking for help though I did think about it.

Honestly, it was all I could do not to burst into hysterical laughter when the pitch started. Happily I was in the backseat, directly behind him, and just got very interested in the passing scenery.
