Chevy Bolt EV Trademark To Be Shared With Yamaha After U.S. Patent Office Suspension: UPDATE
" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
While I'm not enamored of the Bolt name, is anyone really likely to choose not to buy a car based on what it's called? Which reminds me of the SNL sketch that killed a long-running ad campaign for Flucker's (er, Smucker's) jam by pointing out the illogicality of the tag line:
Jane Curtin: . . . And so, with a name like Fluckers, it’s got to be good.
Chevy Chase: Hey, hold on a second, I have a jam here called Nose Hair. Now with a name like Nose Hair, you can imagine how good it must be. MMM MMM!!
Dan Aykroyd: Hold it a minute folks, but are you familiar with a jam called Death Camp? That’s Death Camp! Just look for the barbed wire on the label. With a name like Death Camp it must be so good it’s incredible! Just amazingly good jam!
John Belushi: Wait a minute . . . Dog Vomit, Monkey Pus. We offer you a choice of two of the most repulsive brand names of jams you’ve ever heard of. With names like these, this stuff has got to be terrific. We’re talking fabulous jam here!
Chevy Chase: Save your breath fella! Here’s a new jam we’ve just put out. It’s called Painful Rectal Itch. You’d have to go a long way to find a worse name for a jam. And good? MMM WAH! With a name like Painful Rectal Itch you gotta bet that it’s great . . .
Dan Aykroyd: Mangled Baby Ducks. That’s right, Mangled Baby Ducks! Picture a jam so good that you’d dare to call it Mangled Baby Ducks! Great Jam! It’s beautiful jam!
John Belushi: Wait a minute, wait a minute, this is it - 10,000 Nuns and Orphans.
Jane Curtin: 10,000 Nuns and Orphans? What’s so bad about that?
John Belushi: They were all eaten by rats! Oh, it’s so good! MMM!
Garrett Morris: Hold it, hold it everyone, your attention please, I have here a jam called, Oh God, [mumbles] Ick! Yecch!
Dan Aykroyd: It’s so good it’s sick making!
Chevy Chase: Oh, that’s gotta be great jam!
Jane Curtin: So if it’s great jam you’re after, try this one, the brand so disgusting you can’t say it on television. Ask for it by name!
