recover. incredible. and finally, a sheep farmer in england came up with a genius idea. instead of relying on dogs to herd the sheet, why not make this. a car that looks like a ginormous dog. the farmer spent thousands of dollars, covered the car in fur to look like the sheep dog and it works. the sheep don't notice, and they let a giant dog herd them around the farm. and strahan, this next bit is for you. we heard your favorite movie of all time, "dumb and dumber," reminds us of this vehicle driven by jeff daniels and the gang. >> i thought it came straight from the movie. >> right into it. >> yeah. >> also, ginger's favorite too. >> so you're saying i got a chance? love it. >> can't wait for the new one. thanks, amy. turn now to a holiday travel
