    Old news is better than no news but yet it's still funny.

    Perhaps funnier if you know it's pronounced poo-ket. :p

    Yes please. The isles of Thailand sound pretty good right now.

    Bingo. I read the billboard twice wondering what the the joke was... That ad was created by an uneducated cubicle worker who lacks a sense of geography and the common sense to research his material before putting together the design.

    ...either that, or they're just playing on the fact that 95% of the world doesn't no it's pronounced Poo-ket.

    BMW I think has one of the best marketing teams anywhere.

    I think you meant to say, perhaps 95% of the US population don't know it's pronounced Poo-ket. ;)

    I thought that was brilliant when I saw it. The Audi guys must have been kicking themselves.

    I recognized that right away.... I live within walking distance of those billboards. At the bottom you can see the Coffee Bean that's at the corner of Beverly Glen and Santa Monica.....

    Here's one that I think is hi-larious. It's also on Santa Monica Blvd. Keep on smoking y'all....
