At least you have a superbeetle, rampant for an icon

What did it originally signify, or was it just a "pull a name/phrase out of the air" sort of moment?

I grew up in a state where every town had at least one VW Beetle on blocks in someone's yard. That itself was a kind of sculpture.

And remember, the Superbeetle floats.

Re: At least you have a superbeetle, rampant for an icon

There was a great ad that ran in the late 70's that showed a Superbeetle screaming down a gravel road. There was a voice-over that spoke of performance, options, mpg, etc.

There is a pan, after which the Bug drives onto and then off of a dock, splashing into the lake. As it launches, the voice-over says, "And best of all, the Volkswagen Superbeetle is the only car [launch. splash] ...that floats."
