It has been suggested that to banish the "white van man" as being loutish, road-hogging, ignorant, bad drivers, etc., etc.,etc.,etc., the motor industry have come up with a way to try and hide that white van stigma.
How? Well the University of Boffins have developed a new paint codenamed "chameleon" that when applied it will blend into any background, thus hiding the fact that this is a white van. The hope is that people will see this as just a van and will stop other drivers going out of their way to confront the white van man about his behavior (see above).
So far the paint has only been tested on RAF helicopters, but the paint is so good at blending with the background, the RAF has lost its entire fleet.
"They are somewhere in the desert" said General Hideands Eek. He went on, "we will send soldiers out to scour the area with large magnets, but unfortunately they have been painted with "chameleon" so we will do that once we find them".
So, if this paint revolution catches on and we don't lose the whole planet, you could be passed down your street with what looks like your next door neighbour's house.
