How Far Would You Go For A Free Car?

If your name was Andreas Muller and you lived in Germany, you’d get yourself tattooed in the most uncomfortable of places to win a free car. Mr. Muller, it seems, really wanted to win a new Mini Cooper being given away by a local radio station, so he agreed to have the word “Mini” tattooed on his junk. That was enough for a win, and the local station broadcast live from the event; as you’d imagine, there was a fair amount of screaming involved. It goes to show that “Jackass” isn’t purely an American phenomenon, and I wish Mr. Muller a speedy recovery. His mom must be so proud.

That said, there are certainly cars that I’d get Mr. Happy branded for. I hate to brag, but “McLaren MP4-12C” would fit nicely, as would “Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera” (although, admittedly, you’d have to use a smaller font for that one). A friend suggested “Hummer”, which would have added benefits beside a free car, but I don’t want to drive a Hummer. I think “Porsche GT2 RS” would fit nicely, and I’d be more than happy to man up (literally and figuratively) if Porsche wanted to lease some, um, advertising space.
