Awful Things To Key Into Someone’s Car

You might’ve once thought that having your new or used car keyed (regardless of the quality of the message or artwork) couldn’t get worse. Think again…

1

Swastika

Swastika

Did you know that the swastika is actually a symbol of luck, security, glory and the common good according to ancient Balinese Hinduism? Most motorists don’t know that and, even if your intentions are good, the message might get lost in translation.

‘Pull my finger’

‘Pull my finger’

There’s nothing as immature and tasteless as potty humor, even in cases of used car vandalism. Furthermore, if a vehicle’s owner is down to clown and wants to pull that finger, where are you to offer your services? You’re gone. Cowardly, to say the least.

3

‘White Power’

‘White Power’

Demetri Martin once noted that 100 percent of stick figures are African American. On the flip side, all keyed images are white. When will these two distinct groups finally coexist peacefully?

4

‘Wash me’

‘Wash me’

Innocent Mormon kids from Utah get slaphappy over etching this message into dirty used cars with a moistened pointer finger. Remember, too much of a good thing leads to inappropriate, vehicular defacement, even in Utah. Then comes heroin.

5

‘X’

‘X’

A simple “X” is just such a rookie maneuver. Video games are ruining the creativity of America’s youth. Unless doubly used in a beer commercial, the “X” just screams that you were terrified of getting caught and couldn’t think of anything better to do.

6

Phallic symbol

Phallic symbol

Also known as a “baloney pony,” “kickstand,” “pecker” or “twig n’ berries,” the penis has always been a beautiful artistic centerpiece of sorts. New and used cars, however, tend to opine differently.

7

The sign for anarchy

The sign for anarchy

The sign for anarchy and the Criss Angel logo are exactly the same. The unidentified person who targeted your vehicle might have just been confused, so that’s a plus. Maybe you’d actually be really great friends in real life.

8

‘B*tch’

‘B*tch’

Short, powerful and classy, yet still hurtful. This is the finest of insults. To be honest, it’s hard not to smile just a little bit.

  • Modern marketing is pure chaos. Consumers are revolting against stagnate companies and abandoning traditional media in droves. Only those who adapt will succeed. The revolution is in full-swing.
    Consumers are dictating how they want to do business and it’s not the way you’ve probably done business before. It might not even be the way you want to do business in the future. But, digging in your heels and refusing to adapt and change will make your brand irrelevant to the new digital consumer. You may survive, but only for a while.
    Today’s businesses and organizations are at a tipping point. Will you adapt to change and succeed?
    We’re here to help. We are Fusion 360. We are the Agency for the Digital Revolution.
