Check out the copy on this classic VW ad.

(click ad, emailed by Joan)
It alternates between awesome (daughter's pet snake, cat named Rover) to appalling (50 straight weeks of cooking, find something to talk about when no TV). The DDB boys didn't hit it out the park every time. Of course, this was the 1960s. And it's not nearly as sexist as this VW Beetle ad from the same era. Man, if you had a bus in that condition today, you could name your price for it. Related: The VW Apollo 11 ad was a masterpiece.
