Today, my wife and I drove 7 hours from nearly San Deigo back to our home in San Francisco. It got me thinking about the road trip in little Miss Sunshine where they take a Volkswagen Bus. If it weren’t for the gas prices it would be fun to own a Volkswagen Bus. I’m not the only one who thinks so though.
Steve Speirs, the guy behind the the hundred pushups phenomenon really wants a VW Bus. He’s trying to pull an Alex Tew, who started the Million Dollar Homepage. What makes this different? It’s targeted towards one product and has an accompanying blog. I’m not sure if it’s going to be successful, but I think that’s an interesting twist. If I owned a VW dealership, I’d considering throwing a little money at the website. Or instead of trying to buy advertising, the person could simply enter the contest for free advertising, iTunes, and Amazon gift cards. Anyway, it’s on to this week’s links…
