Sometimes I get worked up about the dumbest things. Stuff that doesn't affect my life at all. I know it's unreasonable and, frankly, probably pretty unhealthy. But there are some things that are out of my control. They bother me, and there is nothing I can do about it.
Case in point - the latest Volkswagen advertising campaign.
It's a take on the old "punch buggy" game that we used to play on long family car trips. Whenever you would see a VW Bug (Beetle), you would punch your nearest sibling and yell "punch buggy"! Fun, right?
But now the VW advertising folks have changed it to "punch dubs" and expanded the population of punch targets to Jettas and Golfs and whatever else Volkswagen makes. They can't just do that! Change the game? It's our game, and it should only involve VW Bugs! I don't want to punch my little sister whenever I see a Jetta. I only want to punch her when I see a Beetle, fer crissakes!
Hmm...yeah, I guess I'm over-reacting. But dammit, I get pissed every time I see one of those "punch dubs" commercials!
