Uber Seize parody is more 'Grand Theft Auto,' less ridesharing

People may rag on Uber for its tendency to play fast and loose with the law, but they don't have a patch on The Onion's parody version of the ridesharing outfit. The site just posted a video introducing "Uber Seize," a mock service tier that would let you swipe cars to get where you're going. Instead of simply hailing a ride, you'd pick a target vehicle and go all Grand Theft Auto on the hapless driver. No, this isn't going to show up in real life any time soon (we sure hope not), but it's funny to imagine Uber taking its vision of disruptive transportation to a logical extreme.
