My Beef Against Volkswagen

I wasn’t going to write about the incident I had in Des Moines last night, but the same thing occurred this morning as I was waiting for waiting for a cab in front of the airport.

As the cab was coming, a woman punched me in the arm and said, “Red one!”  It didn’t take me long to see the Volkswagen Jetta drive past the hotel.

Last night was worse than that incident.  I was walking along Ingersoll Avenue and was heading towards the Alpine Tap Room.  A couple of men were walking in the opposite direction.  As I walked between them, I suddenly got punched in both arms by both men.

“Blue one!”

They hit me again before I could say anything.

“White one!”

I was going to say something, but they were both larger and in better shape than I am.  The Alpine Tap Room was in my sight so I scurried towards it before anybody could see it.  I was just about to enter the bar when I got punched in the chest.

“Black one.”

This is my message to Volkswagen:  Quit running those commercials!  First off, it’s not “Punch Dub,” it’s “Punch Bug.”  One is supposed to be allowed to punch when a Volkswagen Beetle is in sight.   Second, the ad promotes violence.  It gives the impression that it is OK to punch a stranger just because a specific car is around.  Not only do the commercials promote violence, but it encourages unprovoked attacks of innocent bystanders.

Volkswagen can take this opportunity to promote peace in the world.  Replace “Punch Dub” with “Hug Dub.”  While some people might not like being hugged by total strangers, it is less painful and promotes peace.

  1. This is an issue that I’ve taken an interest in. I think there should be a rally, or a sit-in, or maybe a tea party… No, no tea…*shudder*

    The game is SUPPOSED to be “Punch Buggy”… this means it applies ONLY to the VW Bugs! It does NOT apply to every stinking VW on the road, only the distinctive, Herbie-clones.

    As a child of the 70’s, I’m offended by this blatant disregard for the sanctity of the game, and this has gone far enough! No more, I tell you!
    Keep the Punch Buggies pure! Like the Aryan race that Hitler meant it for in the first place!

    Yeesh.

  2. You figure the Germans would know a thing or two about purity and wouldn’t want anything German to be tainted…

  3. The wife didn’t like when I took that game and started playing it when I saw smart cars. Where do you live that there are so many bugs still around.

  4. There aren’t many bugs around now. It was done with the Beetle in the 1970s. There was a time between 1978 and the mid 1990s when Beetles weren’t sold in the United States. They were sold in the US for a few years in the ’90s. Volkswagen quit making them in 2003.

  5. I wish that the governement would focus more on outsourcing. We have always been overwhelmed with metal money. I hate driving by car places…it makes me sick.

  6. I am no fan of driving by car places either. After yesterday, I won’t drive by a Volkswagen dealer unless I am wearing a full body armor suit.

  7. I meant that exporting and less importing.

    Comment by hanilol | April 16, 2010

  8. I agree. People buy imports because they’re a bit cheaper. Parts and labor are much more expensive on imports, losing any savings from not buying a domestic car.

  9. It’s funny that the Germans hate violence but I think actions speak louder than words. Stinking Germans.

  10. Well… as a driver of a black, Volkswagen EOS and a past FIVE Volkswagen Beetles…. I believed the game to be “Slug Bug”… and we played that the OWNERS could not be “slugged”… had, indeed, amnesty. LOL… (mostly to keep from being black and blue at all times)… No one slugs me in my EOS, or, for the matter, anyone around me…. must be because the EOS isn’t very recognizable as a Volkswagen (as VW’s hard-top convertible it rocks!)… but I kinda like the old “slug bug” game… it keeps you on your toes and gives me a way to see all the new AND old VW’s on the road… call me an old hippie, but that makes me smile. 🙂 Peace out!

  11. I have heard a few things, but it all had to do with the “Bug” or “Beetle”.
    Volkswagen doesn’t make Beetles anymore, “Punch Scirraco” just doesn’t work.
