Unreal, an entire fleet of '06 NB's in all colors arrived at my kid's middle school yesterday. Kids got to sit in and touch 'em. Check out the free stuff they got, flipflops and a key chain that pop out and then u have a wacky frisbee (it works gr8!), a cool shrink wrapped tee-shirt, a car air freshener (smells like an expensive perfume, but I can't put my finger on which one) and a yo-yo...:guitar:

Why did the fleet go to the middle school? Not too many of the kids have drivers licenses....... :D

I'm guessing, VW wanted to plant the seeds into these kids, so they would want one when they grow up. :)


At any rate, cool freebies!

Gotta son who's 22 at U of Maryland grad school from the 'practice' marriage and 9 and 11 year olds from the 'soul mate' marriage. Pic from SFLGTG '05; my chick, section of my head, the top of my son's head and my daughter:

While that's cool for the kids and all, I can't help but question VW and their advertising spending.

Sure, their ads on TV are cute. Many would like to see some actual more performance oriented ads, or even ads to show the function of their vehicles (which they have been doing with the new Passat).

But spending all that money to advertise to kids who don't even drive?

It's either brilliant or stupid, only time will tell...;)

At any rate, all these kids were pointing my 'vert out to their moms this morning (my office is only one block away, so I get the drop off task)) and I heard one kid say as he was pointing "Hey mom, those cars came to our school yesterday!" and Mom looked at the kid like he was nuts...:D
