Volkswagen Logo Totally Looks Like The WordPress Logo

Yesterday I was watching the boob tube and a Volkswagen commercial came on. At the end of the commercial I suddenly got the urge to blog, which hasn’t happened in a LONG time. I wondered about the connection but then my program came back on (Food Tech on History channel, if you must know) and I settled back into my catatonic TV-watching state (I call it “boob-tubing”). Then the same commercial came back on later in the program and I paid specific attention to the Volkswagen logo at the end. It was then that I realized why I got the urge to blog: the new Volkswagen logo totally looks like the WordPress logo. See for yourself:
Both images are white on blue, circular, and contain the letter “W” in white text blending in with the inner white border. Uncanny! But here’s the most interesting part: I got the urge to blog from the commercial, so I blogged about the commercial, which is what lead me to blog in the first place, without which there would have been no catalyst to blog about itself. Or another way of looking at it: this blog post only exists if the commercial exists, which is the source of this blog post originally, which is in turn a post about the commercial itself. The question then is, which came first, the blog post or the commercial?
Wait, we got off topic. The point is, some dude ripped off some other dude’s work. That reminds me of how Nickelback ripped off their own work – remember that post? It was better than this one.
This is awesome! It has conspiracy, theft, and trademark infringement! All the signs of a great mystery. It would be a great murder mystery, if say, Nickelback was murdered. I am just saying…
And the Aire Born logo… but the AB logo was done before WordPress. http://aireborn.com/welcome/public_relations.html
Nice looking site these days!!
LOL. It's probably just a coincidence that the logos look similar. Or maybe subconciously, the WordPress logo maker wants a VW
Unlike John Fogerty, Nickelback didn't go to court for ripping off their own work did they?
Somehow I don't think VW will end up in court either.
