Question of the "moment".
Do you think The Colonel (who is this guy?) should get a Cube?
Lets ask him!
Q- Colonel you heard about the Hypercube promotion in Canada?
A- Nissan wants to give 50 Cubes to imaginative / creative / innovative Canadians. Yes I heard about it, its an excellent promotion, a good way to raise awareness, its gained momentum and followers on Twitter. The "suits" at Nissan might be surprised where this promotion goes, and it will do.
Q- Do you think that you should participate top get a Cube?
A- Me (looking perplexed)? You guys are not serious, I'm so far removed from their target demographic I would get disqualified before even starting out.
Q- We know that you are not a Gen X, or Gen Y, or a Millenial, or a ....what are you anyways?
A- Try human being, try Boomer, try hot rods, try muscle cars, try choppers....am I eliminating myself fast enough?
Q- You are doing a good job.
A- Good to hear that I'm succeeding....but wait! Imagine for a moment what Ed Roth would have done with a Cube? Now an Ed Roth "Rat Fink" Hypercube would be interesting.
Q- You do make a point....the Cube would be an interesting vehicle for Ed Roth to play with, besides being the right size for one of his creations.
A- One more reason why I should not get one, I'm not Ed Roth...although I was around when he was popular.
Q- Is there anything that grasps your attention about the Cube?
A- Its got this Japanese "cool thing" about it...small "innovative" Japanese vehicles are cool, they have a distinct character.
Q- What would you do with a Cube?
A- A blend of Ed Roth, samurai, geisha look!
Q- That sounds interesting?
A- It sure does.
Q- Did you say that you are the wrong demographics?
A- Totally wrong, don't even think about it. The Cube "target demographics" have no clue about Ed Roth. Its don't go there, forget about it.
Q- What would happen if Cube for some crazy reason wanted to target these demographics?
A- You mean the folks that know about Ed Roth, Boomers?
A- Are you asking why a Boomer would go around in a Cube? instead of a G35 from Inifiniti.
Q- Something of the sort?
A- Why not, a Cube is a totally cool vehicle to run errands, commute, grocery getter....why not. Besides being socially responsible in saving the environment. Plus in a G35 the individual might look "crusty" in a Cube the individual looks "fresh".
Q- Did you enter your e-mail for the contest?
A- What contest? What e-mail?
Q- You don't want a Cube do you?
A- Did I say that?
