Yugo Ads

September 13, 1987

I would like to give my view on a commercial that has been appearing on television lately. The commercial is for the Yugo, the car imported from Yugoslavia. The commercial's catch phrase is as follows: "Buy a little freedom. Buy a Yugo." I find this to be a very confusing statement.

It is to my understanding that when a person buys a Yugo the profits go to Yugoslavia or in full, the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. In short, when buying a Yugo, you are sending money to a Communist country. Communism is not freedom. I think that the people who sell Yugos should redefine their terms of what freedom really is! I also think that those considering buying a Yugo should think twice about what they're going to invest their money in!
