“It’s ugly, but it gets you there” was the 1969 advertising slogan for which car?


Volkswagen Beetle




Answer: Back in 1969, Volkswagen ran a print ad with the tag line, “It’s Ugly, but It Gets You There.” However, instead of displaying an image of its Volkswagen Beetle it featured the U.S. Lunar Module, the first of many lunar excursion modules to land on the Moon.

The ad campaign resonated with car buyers and propelled sales of Volkswagen through the roof.
