Two Small Problems with Public Facing Communication
We’ll start with the corporate communications department for Kia. Kia, the Korean automaker, is planning a significant U.S. extension next year, bumping its retail network here to 800 from 760 in 20 metro areas. They’re hoping to sell 500,000 vehicles. Although it’s unclear, at least according to the headline, if Kia knows the difference between the U.S. and Europe. To wit:
The following image was pulled from Jalopnik. Apparently the Virginia DMV lowered the price of vanity plates to an easy $10. Not that the price had anything to do with the, eh, wittiness of the driver (gender unknown, but he/she goes by Jason):
Jason…clever, despicable, or merely literal? Remember the car was technically made by Volkswagen AG.
The Florida DMV isn’t as lackadaisical about its role in protecting social mores, however. The Sunshine State has banned a ridiculous amount of these vanity plates. 1800 in total, to be exact. Including BUK NAKD and RU-NEKID. If anyone knows of any tangible societal problems created by these wry and lewd insubordinate images, please let us know. What sort of upheaval movements can these plates really cause?
