In tune with the increased popularity of on-demand car service apps, like Uber and Get-Taxi, Elite Daily has released a parody video playing on the Jewish mother stereotype.

"Shlep," the app based on Jewish navigation (or, Jew-ography), provides a nice Jewish mother as an entertaining chauffeur who, in exchange for driving you, will offer her daughter's hand in marriage, ask you to pick up her dry-cleaning, offer you a free lunch (straight out of her  grocery bags), and have you squeeze in the backseat in between two pre-bar-mitzvah kids screaming the lyrics to Taylor Swift's "Shake it Off."
