When Advertising Tried Harder: VW bus ad from 1968.

(click, via)
So simple. So smart. DDB, of course. Wonder if VW got a C&D letter from DC Comics?
Previous retro VW ads:

just sexist.
brilliant Apollo 11 ad.

the superwagon WAS a big deal back then.

vw had some great ads, sort of self deprecating while emphasizing the coolness of having a vee dub.
