It’s interesting how the narration in this classic commercial is written almost like a problem on a math test…
Mr. Jones and Mr. Krempler were neighbors.
They each had $3,000.
With his money, Mr. Jones bought himself a $3,000 car.
With his money Mr. Krempler bought himself a new refrigerator, a new range, a new washer, a new dryer, a record player, two new television sets… and a brand new Volkswagen.
Now Mr. Jones is faced with that age-old problem—keeping up with the Kremplers.
