A Bug of a Lemon

Here’s a poem about the advertising history of the VW Beetle. I had to think so much about the beetle that I ended up dreaming about the car.  Not necessarily  a bad thing, just weird.

In case you don’t know what some of their ads look like here’s the Lemon one:

Think Small:

Not many companies belittle their product. And even if they do, not to the point of the Beetle. They called it a freaking lemon. You can’t say much worse for a car.  It was a good thing the Beetle was the exact opposite otherwise those ads would have crushed the product.
