My beloved old Saab finally kicked the dust a couple weeks ago. After some debate, I’ve decided to look into some options for replacing it. My search led me to the Volkswagen dealership, where I couldn’t help but notice the classic Doyle Dane Bernbach ads from the ’60s and ’70s plastered around the place. I was surprised to see that the charming, witty, iconic ads that transformed the original Beetle from an ugly duckling to America’s sweetheart, are still selling cars today. Even more surprising is how effective and relevant they still are. See some of my favorites after the jump.
