Classic Captions – The 1963 Buick Skylark Convertible Edition

14427386289_91e9b0f46f_k

Welcome to the Hooniverse Classic Captions Post, and it’s that time of the week in which this feature appears, so let’s review the premise; I search for images that were used by the car or truck companies in their print advertising or brochures, and it is your job to provide a humorous caption that is some how tied in with the image. Here we have a young couple doing a little House Hunting, but we will get to that in a moment…

Last time, we had an image of a Toy DeSoto, and the response level was dreadful, and I really don’t quite know why… However, let’s see how good the captions were. The runner up caption was actually my favorite this week, and it was by mkep819, and it was perfect for the time period: “Unfortunately for Johnny, Betsy knew that he forgot to check off the “Cootie Protection Package” option, when ordering his new ride.” Ah yes, I remember the term “Cootie” when I was a lot younger than I am today, but there was one that you guys seemed to like better…

And the winning comment was from Number_Six, but there was a small mistake buried within the caption: “You came in that thing? You’re braver than I thought.” – A young George Lucas gains 40 years of material in just one outing with his pedal-powered DeSoto. Um, Number_Six, this car was actually powered by a small Briggs & Stratton Engine, but the caption was still funny, so congradulations on winning the classic caption contest this time.

It’s now time to take a look at this weeks entry, and I’m going back to standard Automotive Advertising Images because you guys seem to respond to them better. This particular picture is part of an advertising page for the 1963 Buick Skylark Convertible, with a bright young couple looking into a house that sports a simple “For Sale” sign. The House itself looks rather ramshackle, but you never know what treasures you might find inside. The ad copy is rather interesting, and goes like this: “Find secret places… In the adventurous new Buick Skylark. Powerful Aluminum V-8 engine, choice of 3 silk-smooth transmissions. Dashing bucket seat interior. Despite its modest price, a “limited edition” car, every inch a quality Buick”. What the hell were the ad-men thinking when they came up with this drivel? What is a Modestly Priced, Limited Edition quality Buick anyway? And is this really a way of selling a car during this time period? (You can click here to see the full size image)

You have the next five days to come up with a great caption. The editors will deliberate on the merits of each entry, and after contemplating our own caption (The couple almost look like they are trying to break in…), we will pronounce a winner. So, get to work and create you’re own caption for this dog-gone image.

Classic Captions – The 1958 DeSoto Firemite Edition

14613794932_5348e76d48_k

Welcome to the Hooniverse Classic Captions Post, and it’s that time of the week in which this feature appears, so let’s review the premise; I search for images that were used by the car or truck companies in their print advertising or brochures, and it is your job to provide a humorous caption that is some how tied in with the image. I found this image on Alden Jewell’s Flick Photostream, and I knew I had to look into the history of this car, but we will get to that in a moment…

Last time, we had an image of a Great Dane in a Corvette, and the response level was pretty good, and for the most part, they were quite entertaining. I wish I could highlight all the very clever captions this time, but space dictates that I can’t. Devin almost made the runner-up position with his usual pointed caption: “Bitches love Corvettes”. Yes, short and to the point, but the runner up caption came from long time Hoon, Batshitbox, and his caption went like this: “Driving my red sports car, I can look at all the other drivers with ‘dis Dane.” This was one of the funniest captions all year, but there was one that you guys seemed to like better…

And the winning comment once again came from PotbellyJoe ❤❤❤❤♡, and took a turn that no one expected: “”Damn Stan, that is an awesome dog, I didn’t know you owned one.” | “I didn’t. I was just out driving in this Corvette when I came up to an intersection. A woman walking this dog took off all of her clothes and said, ‘Take what you want.’” | “Good call, the clothes probably wouldn’t have fit.”” I am still laughing at this one, and I think most of you will as well, so congratulations PotbellyJoe ❤❤❤❤♡ on winning the classic caption contest this time.

It’s now time to take a look at this weeks entry, this was just bizarre enough for the fans of this site to sink their teeth into. This is an advertising image for the 1958 DeSoto Firemite Convertible, which is a small “junior” facsimile of an actual full-sized DeSoto Adventurer Convertible. I had to do some research, and I discovered that Chrysler actually absorbed the tooling costs to build the car. The Firemite was built by the Robel Company in Pennsylvania, and the bodies were originally made out of Styrene Plastic, but because of the brittle nature of Styrene, the bodies were then produced out of fiberglass by Amroc of Long Island. They were powered by a 2 HP Briggs and Stratton 6B motor, with a go-kart like automatic centrifugal clutch type of gearbox. Only 325 of these Firemites were made, and most of them fell apart with their original Styrene Plastic Bodies. These cars were used as promotional items at DeSoto Dealers, as a way of boosting showroom traffic. It didn’t work, as sales of the 1958 DeSoto Line was down by almost 60% over the previous year. Let’s get back to the image for a moment, shall we? It shows a precocious (look it up!) young man in the drivers seat of the junior DeSoto, with a hot young thing looking at both the young man and his dashing Firemite. They are both way too young to even comprehend what type of relationship this is suppose to represent, so what the hell is this image all about? And is this really a way of selling a Full Size DeSoto to the Parents? (You can click here to see the full size image)

You have the next five days to come up with a great caption. The editors will deliberate on the merits of each entry, and after contemplating our own caption (See other images for the Firemite Here, Here, and Here), we will pronounce a winner. So, get to work and create you’re own caption for this dog-gone image.

Classic Captions – The 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster Edition

14571696114_2393331c86_h

Welcome to the Hooniverse Classic Captions Post, and it’s that time of the week in which this feature appears like clockwork, so let’s review the premise; I search for images that were used by the car or truck companies in their print advertising or brochures, and it is your job to provide a humorous caption that is some how tied in with the image. This is the 8th time that I have used a Corvette Advertising Image for this particular feature, but we will get to that in a few moments…

10336502905_1e25cb5093_b

Last time, we had an image of an Apple II Computer being carried out to an Oldsmobile, and the response level was fairly large, and for the most part, they were quite entertaining. However, there was a tie for the runner up position this time, and in all reality I didn’t care for either one. Let’s start out with a caption from a relative newcomer, steamcorners, and the caption submitted went like this: “Oregon Trail: B-O-P Special Edition. “You have died of malaise!”” Ah, I see that you are new around here steamcorners, and you could have created a great caption without relying on deriding the word Malaise, but it was a great first effort. It is now time for you to create an Intense Debate Account, so the rest of us can follow your interesting conversations here on Hooniverse! Now to the comment that tied with steamcomers, and it comes from long time Hoon needthatcar. His comments are usually priceless, but not this time: “Unable to afford anything but a 7 year old Oldsmobile, Brad Jones and his son were happy to hear about the Rodney King riots and went out for an afternoon of father-son looting.” Let me say this, I love all the work that you do, not only here but on your own blog, and I know that you can do much better… I didn’t like it needthatcar, but apparently the readers did so who am I to judge? I still would like you to participate around these parts because your past efforts have been stellar

And the winning comment once again came from GTXcellent, and it was very humorous with it’s deadpan simplicity: “I don’t know anything about buying one of these computers son.” “That’s ok Dad, you don’t know anything about buying a car either.” This one is called insult humor, and it was spot on for this image, so congratulations GTXcellent on winning the classic caption contest this time.

It’s now time to take a look at this weeks entry, and I once again went back to the treasure trove that is Corvette Advertising, with this image for a 1963 Corvette Sting Ray Roadster. Just look at this image… It shows a smartly dressed older Gentleman in the drivers seat of a red Corvette Roadster, with a Great Dane sitting in the passenger seat, towering over the windshield. The ad copy is amazing in itself: “looks like a sports car… feels like a sports car… performs like a sports car… HOW COME IT’S A LUXURY CAR?”. The ad states that you can get all sorts of luxury car features with this Corvette, like an Automatic Transmission (for God’s Sake!). What puzzles me is this: What does the Dog have anything to do with the Corvette? Let’s see if you can make sense of this image by providing a witty caption of your own! (You can click here to see the full size image)

You have the next five days to come up with a great caption. The editors will deliberate on the merits of each entry, and after contemplating our own caption (Why a Great Dane in the passenger seat?), we will pronounce a winner. So, get to work and create you’re own caption for this dog-gone image.

Classic Captions – The 1984 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera Brougham Edition

10336502905_1e25cb5093_b

Welcome to the Hooniverse Classic Captions Post, and once again it’s that time of the week in which this feature appears like clockwork, so let’s review the premise; I search for images that were used by the car or truck companies in their print advertising or brochures, and it is your job to provide a humorous caption that is some how tied in with the image. This week I showcase an image ripped from the year 1984, at the beginning of the home computer revolution, but we will get back to that in a moment…

14261754657_5e22b25bea_b

Last time, we had a picture of an International Pickup with a lot of numbers surrounding it, and the number of participants was almost back to normal, so let’s see who the front runners were this time, shall we? Our runner-up in this particular caption contest was from dwbf11, and it ties in the past host from the popular game show, “The Price is Right”, and it went like this: “A rare look inside Bob Barker’s brain revealed some troubling fantasies”. How do you guys think this stuff up? This was very funny, and it was actually my personal favorite, but there was one other that seemed to be your favorite this time…

And the winning comment once again came from smalleyxb122, and it was very suggestive (though not really unexpected): “To be an International man, you must first study a broad.” Or three as a mater of fact, so congratulations smalleyxb122 on winning the classic caption contest this time.

It’s now time to take a look at this weeks entry, and yes, I was trolling around Alden Jewell’s Flickr Photostream for some retro photographic advertising images again and this one kept saying very bad things to me, so I said what the hell… This is an image that was used at Oldsmobile Dealers for the 1984 model year, and it shows a Father and his Kid (I would only assume it is his kid, but I digress) carrying out a new Apple II Personal Computer from a local retailer. So, they bought what was a state-of-the-art computer, while driving a car that was firmly stuck in the past. Look at the Oldsmobile Styling Cues for a moment… 1/2 vinyl roof, Wire Wheel Covers, Whitewall Tires, and yea, it does have a Stand-up Hood Ornament. Remember, at the same time this was produced, Chevrolet produced an identical car in the form of a Celebrity Eurosport, without even a lick of chrome anywhere, while Pontiac produced the 6000 STE, which was a (somewhat) serious contender to the Audi 5000 Sedan. So, what does this image tell you about the owner of the Oldsmobile? Let’s see if you can make sense of this image by creating a caption of your own. (You can click here to see the full size image)

You have the next five days to come up with a great caption. The editors will deliberate on the merits of each entry, and after contemplating our own caption (I never did own an Apple II…), we will pronounce a winner. So, get to work and create you’re own caption for this very dated image.

Classic Captions – The 1967 International Harvester Pickup Edition

14261754657_5e22b25bea_b

Welcome to the Hooniverse Classic Captions Post, and it’s that time of the week in which this feature appears like clockwork, so let’s review the premise; I search for images that were used by the car or truck companies in their print advertising or brochures, and it is your job to provide a humorous caption that is some how tied in with the image. And this week I decided to raid Alden Jewell’s Flickr Photostream once again with this very unusual image from 1967, but we will get to that in a moment…

tumblr_l3rbntaiyv1qanlclo1_1280

Last time, we had an image of a young couple with a converted Toyota Celica, and I really stopped caring about the participation rate because this feature is very enlightening, dammit! But let’s get to the front runners in this particular caption contest, and I need to start with an explanation. You see, I ran a Weekend Edition Posting about a Toyota Celica Sunrunner, and chastised the dealer for placing the ad without so much as a rudimentary description of the car, just about 100 words describing the dealer itself. You can see that post by clicking here! Anyway, it was nanoop who just took the essence of that post, and tied it into his caption, like so: “Bert and Judy were really happy that they found this hint on hooniverse, because East Coast Toyota-Scion is the recent recipient of the Board of Governor’s Award, the President’s Award, and a Circle of Excellence Award. These accolades are only awarded to dealers achieving record sales while offering the highest level of customer service in the industry…. Well I’ll stop here…” Way to throw it back into my face nanoop, but it was a very funny comeback. The only thing is this: There was one caption that was just a bit sharper…

And the winning comment once again came Devin, and it was ironically humorous in it’s simplicity: “Gary’s attempts to get Liz topless only resulted in a modified Celica.” See, like I said, simplicity. So congratulations Devin on winning the classic caption contest this time.

It’s now time to take a look at this weeks entry, and once again I was trolling around Alden Jewell’s Flickr Photostream for some retro photographic advertising images (He seems to batch them in groups of between 4 and 12 each time he uploads new images) and I wasn’t going to run another International Pickup image so soon (the last one was on April 22nd of this year) but how can I not… Look at this image… It has it all… Let’s start with the lovely women, one Blonde, one Brunette, and one Red Head. Don’t you love the swingin’ sixties fashion? So, I have to ask, why is the guy in the picture on the passenger side of the truck, and what is he smiling about? The numbers you see at the top of the truck? This is tied in with the ad pitch that says: “This Year’s Smartest Numbers”. Well that really tells me… nothing, nothing whatsoever! Let’s see if you can make sense of this image by creating a caption of your own. (You can click here to see the full size image)

You have the next five days to come up with a great caption. The editors will deliberate on the merits of each entry, and after contemplating our own caption (This Year’s Smartest Numbers… of what?), we will pronounce a winner. So, get to work and create you’re own caption for this whacked-out image.

Classic Captions – The 1980 Toyota Celica Sunchaser Edition

tumblr_l3rbntaiyv1qanlclo1_1280

Welcome to the Hooniverse Classic Captions Post, and once again, it’s that time of the week in which this feature appears, so let’s review the premise; I search for images that were used by the car companies in their print advertising or brochures, and it is your job to provide a humorous caption that is some how tied in with the image. When I was on duty for the Weekend Edition I did a post on the Toyota Celica Sunchaser, and look what I found, but we will get back to that in a minute…

14340227036_d7db59bda1_h

Last time, we had an image of a young couple and a Jeep Wrangler, and it seems that the participation level was a bit light, so once again I have to ask What’s up with that? The runner-up comment was from longtime Hooniverse Fan, Tomsk (Who is actually the senior editor of another website, so click here and visit that site), and this was his caption: “Sadly, the pilot for The Fresh Prince of Moab was never picked up.” Very funny Tomsk, but there was one comment that was the overwhelming favorite this time.

And the winning comment came from Atomic Toaster Poster Extraordinaire, engineerd™, and it tied in one of the more memorable design flaws of this particular version of the iconic Jeep: “I have a dream that some day I’ll be judged by the content of my character and not the shape of my headlights.” This was a well thought out caption, so congratulations engineerd™ on winning the classic caption contest this time.

It’s now time to take a look at this weeks entry, and I came across this particular image after writing about the Toyota Celics Sunrunner over the weekend. This is a publicity image for the conversion, but I am not sure if it was for Toyota, or the manufacturer of the Sunrunner Conversion. Did you know the you could get a Sunrunner Conversion on an AMC Concord or Eagle? (By the way, here is a web site dedicated to these cars) Anyway, this image has it all for the 80′s… The guy with way too much hair on his head, as well as around his upper lip (Wow, what a Porn Stache, Bro!) with a very svelte beauty who isn’t at all blonde, but is in some sort of a minimalist swimsuit. God, I really loved the 80′s… So, what do you think the relationship is between this young and attractive couple… Friends, Lovers, Sex Slaves? Why not tell us what you think in the comments and I’ll just stand over…………….here! (You can click here to see the full size image)

You have the next five days to come up with a great caption. The editors will deliberate on the merits of each entry, and after contemplating our own caption (You know, this really is a very provocative image), we will pronounce a winner. So, get to work and create you’re own caption for this rather unusual image.

Classic Captions – The 1993 Jeep Wrangler Convertible Edition

14340227036_d7db59bda1_h

Welcome to the Hooniverse Classic Captions Post, and once again, it’s that time of the week in which this feature appears, so let’s review the premise; I search for images that were used by the car companies in their print advertising or brochures, and it is your job to provide a humorous caption that is some how tied in with the image. This week I have decided to raid Alden Jewell’s Flickr Photostream again, with this very interesting couple behind a Jeep Wrangler, but we will get to that image in a few…

Tanshomi Images-001

Last time, we had an image of a Corvair Convertible with a couple pondering where to go, and it was the second time I used an image this large, which unfortunately enhanced some of the detail that was best left alone, and it didn’t escape your attention either. Most of the entries ignored that particular detail, and were somehow still funny. The runner-up comment was from PotbellyJoe ❤❤❤❤♡, who tied in the Corvair theme nicely: “Careful Bill, she’s unsafe at any speed..” Very funny PotbellyJoe ❤❤❤❤♡, but there was one comment that was the overwhelming favorite this time.

And the winning comment came from Irishzombieman☆, with a picture of Jonny Carson as Carnac the Magnificent (Yes, once again) and with a caption that could have been straight from that classic comedy bit: “My ’66 Corvair, and my assistant Tina… zzziiiiipppp. Name two things with powerful rear ends.” Ah yes,, that old Carson bit never gets old, does it? This was excellent so well done Irishzombieman☆ on winning the classic caption contest this time.

Carnac

It’s now time to take a look at this weeks entry, and yes I have raided Alden Jewells Stash of images yet again (since he has a fresh batch, so why the hell not?). This is an image for the 1993 Jeep Wrangler Convertible, with a very heppy young couple behind the Jeep. The original ad exclaimed “Real Juice, Without the Squeeze”. So, what the hell is that suppose to mean? The Ad-Men at Chrysler was trying to tell you that the Wrangler was all of that for under $11,000. What they didn’t tell you was the fact that a top was not part of the package, nor was those snazzy Alloy Wheels, nor were those White Lettered Tires… What is very unusual in my mind is what she is wearing… I don’t think I have ever witnessed a female in Cowboy Boots trimmed in Sterling Silver toe and heel ornaments! (You can click here to see the full size image)

You have the next five days to come up with a great caption. The editors will deliberate on the merits of each entry, and after contemplating our own caption (You know, I could sport a pair of boots like that…), we will pronounce a winner. So, get to work and create you’re own caption for this rather unusual image.

Classic Captions – The 1966 Chevrolet Corvair Convertible Edition

Tanshomi Images-001

Welcome to the Hooniverse Classic Captions Post, and once again, it’s that time of the week in which this feature appears, so let’s review the premise; I search for images that were used by the car companies in their print advertising or brochures, and it is your job to provide a humorous caption that is some how tied in with the image. I have to thank the readers who have responded over the past couple of weeks, so I guess I’ll continue this feature with interesting images that I find all over, like this one from 1966, but we will get to that in a moment…

advertising images2-004

Last time, we had an image of a Hertz Rent-A-Car next to a Boeing 727, and it was the first time I used an image this large, so it looks like more pictures in this size format will become a part of this series in the future. All of the entries were great, and some were extremely funny. The runner-up comment was from smalleyxb122 (yes, again!), who was thinking what we secretly were all thinking: “Don’t land on the shifter. Don’t land on the shifter. Don’t land on the shifter.” Very funny smalleyxb122, but there was one comment that received a little more love from the readers this time.

And the winning comment was from GTXcellent, and it tied in one of the most notorious stunts ever executed from a plane (A 727 no less…): “D. B. Cooper’s first attempt needed quite a bit of refinement.” This was excellent (taking aim squarely at your screen name), so well done GTXcellent on winning the classic caption contest this time.

It’s now time to take a look at this weeks entry, and this was an image that was emailed to me a long time ago from fan of the Hooniverse, Tanshanomi. So, I had to do a bit of research to find where he may have taken it from, and decided to make the width much larger to really bring out the detail… Only one detail was rather alarming, and I hope you guys (It will only be the guys, by the way…) don’t really make an issue of it… so here goes. The image itself raises a lot of questions, like what is the relationship between the (Much) Older Man and the Young, Vibrant Woman? One of the magazines or circulars on the engine cover is titled Guadalajara, while the magazine the girl is holding has models in swimwear. The man, looking a little exasperated, is holding a map or airline tickets. So where do you think they’re off to, and what is their relationship status anyway? So many questions, so little time, so lets keep it civil and see who comes out on top. (You can click here to see the full size image)

You have the next five days to come up with a great caption. The editors will deliberate on the merits of each entry, and after contemplating our own caption (I’m not going anywhere near what I am currently thinking…), we will pronounce a winner. So, get to work and create you’re own caption for this rather unusual image.

Classic Captions – The 1965 Pontiac Bonneville (Hertz Car Rental) Edition

advertising images2-004

Welcome to the Hooniverse Classic Captions Post, and once again, it’s that time of the week in which this feature appears, so let’s review the premise; I search for images that were used by the car companies in their print advertising or brochures, and it is your job to provide a humorous caption that is some how tied in with the image. Thanks to all of our fans here on the ‘verse, the participation level was a little better last week, so I have come to the conclusion that my choice in imagery has been the culprit, so I vow that I will try and do a lot better in the future, and I think I found a great image this time, but let’s get to that in a moment…

car advertisement
Last time, we had an image of a Car Factory Fantasy, and it was the first time I used an illustration and not a photograph, so it looks like more renderings like this will become a part of this series in the future. All of the entries were top notch, very clever, and some were extremely funny. The runner-up comment was from needthatcar, who commented on one Model’s work performance: “Tiffany, are you using a hair dryer on the lug nuts?!? No, no, wait…don’t cry…it’s good, seriously. Those nuts needed to be warmed up. You’re doing great.” Very funny needthatcar, but there was one comment that was just a tad sharper this time…

Fullscreen capture 5262014 22341 PM.bmp
And the winning comment was from I_Borgward, and it was submitted with the image you see on the right. He used mental imagery with just the right words to create an unforgettable picture, and it went as follows: “The Dream: (using the original Dream Factory Image) The Reality: (Using the image on the right) This was so well done, eliciting an “I Hate You Now” comment from Tanshanomi, and quite possibly a few groans from out fans as well, that I can only congratulate I_Borgward on producing the winning caption this time.

It’s now time to take a look at this weeks entry, and I found this image from 1965 for the Hertz Rent-A-Car company with their near decade long tag-line of “Hertz Puts You in the Driver’s Seat” message. There were TV spots in which you saw a man in a business suit gliding down into a Full-Size convertible, with the bright yellow (or simply light grey if you only had a Black & White television) Hertz logo displayed at the end of the commercial. This image was just an extension of the TV spots, used in national Magazines like Life, Look, The Saturday Evening Post, National Geographic, and of course TV Guide. It is amazing that these ads all used Convertibles, since these were the glamour cars of their day, but it was your everyday, run-of-the-mill sedan that made up the majority of the Hertz Fleet during this time period, and they didn’t turn them over as often as they do today. Let’s make this a bonus round this time… Try and name the Airline, as well as the Aircraft Model that the businessman is jumping from! (You can click here to see the full size image)

You have the next five days to come up with a great caption. The editors will deliberate on the merits of each entry, and after contemplating our own caption (I don’t think the guy is going to land in the car, by the way!), we will pronounce a winner. So, get to work and create you’re own caption for this rather unusual image.

Classic Captions – The 2008 Mercedes-Benz SL (Dream Factory) Edition

car advertisement

Welcome to the Hooniverse Classic Captions Post, and once again, it’s that time of the week in which this feature appears, so let’s review the premise; I search for images that were used by the car companies in their print advertising or brochures, and it is your job to provide a humorous caption that is some how tied in with the image. I don’t know what it is, but the participation level for this feature seems to be off, so I am going to break a personal rule I had when starting this feature, and start using Artwork as well as Photography when it comes to images used in Vehicle Advertising or Brochures, starting with this very daring piece produced for Mercedes-Benz, but we will get to that in a minute…

1988 Dodge Ad-05

Last time, we had an image of a “K” Car pretending to be a Sports Car, and like I said, the participation level was way off. I guess the images are running a little stale, so let’s see if we can shift into another direction. The runner-up comment was from P161911, who summed up the disappointment anyone would have with this particular Shelby named product: Shelby Daytona – “When you really want a pony car, but your family works for Chrysler and you aren’t allowed to buy a Mustang or Camaro.” Very well done P161911, but there was one comment that was by far the overall favorite this time…

And the winning comment was from smalleyxb122, and it went like this: “With few prospects on the Horizon, and being Reliant on a decades old line, Steve swallowed his pride and asked her her sign. When she said she was an Aries, he knew that he had found his next Conquest.” This was an excellent comment, utilizing a few Chrysler Nameplates in the process, so congratulations smalleyxb122 on producing the winning caption this time.

It’s now time to take a look at this weeks entry, and like I said, it is one of four different “Dream Factory” images from Mercedes-Benz for the 2008 model year, and this one was for the SL Roadster. The image has it all… For the guys, there is a Beautiful Blond, a Buxom Brunette, and a Ravishing Redhead, all in flowing dresses, high heel shoes, and perfect complexions. They haven’t forgot about the ladies either, though somehow, I think they were short changed in these advertisements. The guy at the control stick looks more like a Buddy Holley Hipster than something I thought the ladies would dream up, but what the hell do I know. Help me out ladies… Is your ideal man dressed in a suit, horn rimmed glasses, slick back hair style, and Elvis Presley Pulsating Hips? Yea, I know, smart is the new sexy, and guys with big muscles are out, but is this the new fantasy? The rest of the ad has a distinct German Techno Pop kind of vibe to it. Yes it is very industrial, but a very sterile type of industrial. I don’t even know if this image really sold cars, but it is a different way to present the Mercedes-Benz Brand. (You can click here to see the full size image)

You have the next five days to come up with a great caption. The editors will deliberate on the merits of each entry, and after contemplating our own caption (Hey, I wear glasses… Does that make me a sex symbol?), we will pronounce a winner. So, get to work and create you’re own caption for this rather unusual image.
