Pixar’s Cars proved what most of us have known since we were little kids: the front end of a car looks a lot like a face. A company named Carlashes hopes to cash in on the whole “car as face” theme by offering big, curly headlamp eyelashes that would make Betty Boop jealous. Seriously. This aftermarket glamification is apparently available for $24.95, but that’s not all! If ridiculous eyelashes aren’t enough, you can add “Crystal Eyeliner” for an additional $19.95. That clear, rhinestone-style bling appears to attaches directly to the paint. Like you, we’re astonished and horrified.

Carlashes’ e-commerce site has apparently endured some intermittent downtime due to elevated traffic levels, likely from a combination of genuinely (and inexplicably) interested window shoppers and people like us, who simply had to see it to believe it. You won’t find us placing an order – ever – but you can hit the jump to watch a pair of videos showcasing the brilliance of Carlashes. Can’t stop staring? There’s a whole photo gallery of these thing adorning everything from a ’55 Caddy to a Toyota 4Runner on the company’s Facebook page.
