Almost as funny as what goes on inside the car are the numerous silly signs and sight gags that are peppered throughout every episode of Peter Kay’s Car Share.
The Unscripted episode may have had mixed reviews, but there were some hilarious hidden jokes that you might’ve missed…

1. The Vengabus is coming
Referencing the 1998 Vengaboys classic, the Vengabus was coming. But nobody was jumping. Instead, they were stuck in traffic on the ring road.
2. Bargain beef
A nod to fast food mega deals, here was a Beef Hot Dog for only 50p. The catch? It isn’t the same size as a Vauxhall Corsa.
3. An obliging car wash
You have to squint for this one, but in the bottom right-hand side of the screen a car wash is advertising the ‘best hand job in town’. Cheeky.
4. Pies of Wigan get another shout out
Peter Kay has a penchant for pie gags. In previous episodes, there were nods to Pies R Us, Cash 4 Pies and a sign tied to a lamppost that literally said ‘Pies – Sale now on’. Now, he’s slotted in a Pies of Wigan truck.
5. Halal meat meets Aldi
And the result? Halaldi.
6. Emergency moustaches
If you can’t grow a mustache [sic], simply tear a complimentary one from this tree.
7. Dodgy digital dog
Apparently getting a real pooch to poo on cue is too difficult. So for this sight gag which has 0% subtlety, a dodgy digital doggy is seen doing a doo doo next to this postbox.
8. Mega what?!
Mega Cutz might not seem particularly rude. But put a pair of scissors in the signage and make the ‘u’ look a bit more like an ‘l’ and an ‘i’ and, well, you have a joke that is very embarrassing when you try and explain it to your mum.
