Hell on wheels
PLEASE HELP. I am in the market for a new car. They all look similar. Should I buy one recommended by a dog, or from a surfer on the roof, one that swings between cranes, or that can avoid paint explosions, one that has a teddy bear which will retrieve my lost keys, one that has a long continuous party, or a cartoon car that gets involved in a desert gunfight?
Now I can’t identify with any of the above. They are predictable and boring enough to cause permanent brain damage. I know they are trying to sell the sizzle on the sizzle and project a shallow lifestyle but they all seem to be designed for threeyear-olds.
I realise that I am not the target market. Am I the only middle-aged, middle-income, middleclass man in South Africa? I may not be very cool, but I am sure my money is. Is there no car ad that tells me what I want to know? I want a safe, reliable and economical car. Thanks.
