Commercial for Volkswagen Bug (beetle). Ralph Carson represents stereotypical car dealer at his used car dealership Carson’s Car-o-rama. Car salesman runs down a line of used cars (1967 cars) whose value has depreciated considerably but believes there has been a mistake when a ‘67 VW bug is still selling for $1280, much more than other cars of the same year. Narrator explains that the Volkswagen does not lose its value as quickly (compared with the car next to it which is humorously on sale for $72)
