The new Ford EKKOSport

WTF!?

Just watched some standard SUV advertising lobbocks, which usually washes over me, but I was rudely jabbed every 10 seconds by the lovely talkey-over lady repeatedly calling it an EKKO-sport.

The word* Ďecoí on cars generally referred, I thought, to itís ecological credentials.

Turns out I am a massive twart (I know you all knew) and it refers to itís ability to resonate sound.

Meh!

Next, the Velar...

Allow me to add my personal, related rant. The Ford k a. No, it's ka, all one word, the German pronunciation of the letter k.

(Just has to be the laziest model name ever: "what shall we call our k-segment car? How about 'K'".)

The Range Rover Vulgar

There's an advert out at the moment for a new Vauxhall SUV (do wake up).

If you've seen it, you'll notice the advert centres on the car's ability to... make Tuesdays more interesting. Beats 'brings excitement to buying slippers', I suppose.

Follows on from the awful trend of spelling something incorrectly in an attempt to gain attention. Quite possibly not as bad as the bad habit papers now have for conjuring pathetic puns for their headlines. He who would pun would pick a pocket. (Starter for 10, which film is that from?).
