Phot1198 A graffiti againts the relaunching of the VW Beetle in Brazil (1993)


Na Rua Fradique Coutinho, em São Paulo, em FEV1993 foi pintado, numa esquina, este graffiti de crítica ao relançamento do Fusca.

In the street Fradique Coutinho, in São Paulo/Brazil, in FEB1993 a graffiti was painted on a corner making a critic to the relaunching of the VW Beetle.

O trocadilho foi: "Itamar das curvas". Aqui o Fusca está saíndo da esquina, arrebentando a porta do estabelecimento.

The clue was the sentence: "Itamar das curvas", it is difficult to translate the joke, but the sense was: "The President Itamar is bad on the curves" meaning that he was taking the wrong decisions.

Aqui o Fusca está entrando no estabelecimento, arrebentando a porta. Este graffiti existiu por pouco tempo, pois o etabelecimento fechou e o novo inquilino decidiu apagar a brincadeira.

Here the VW Beetle is entering the store, breaking the door. This graffiti existed for a short time, because the store closed and the new owner decided to errase the joke.
