"Print is neither "hot" nor "cold." It's honest. Inherently. You're out there on the page, naked, without so much as a guitar. Just your product and the word." Interesting ad by DDB in the US, from 1971.

I've read that ad, every word of it. Even though it's from 1971. Even though digital is "hot". Even though I usually hate ads. It's a great piece of writing and it tells me something important.

After all that, let's take a look at the newest VW ad from Germany, shall we?

The end of a great brand made by those who nurtured it.
