Ever since this weird Men's Wearhouse ad aired during the season premiere of "Breaking Bad," I haven't been able to get it out of my head. Not because of the bad '80s suit, but because of the car meant to reprsent the "millennial" generation.
So Men's Wearhouse is celebrating 40 years of style and if you pay attention, there's a different car to represent each decade. The '70s is a Pontiac Grand Prix, the '80s is a Firebird, the '90s is a Jeep Cherokee (weird?) and for the '00s, and assuming the '10s as well, it's a Fisker Karma.
I thought it was odd to throw a Karma in there with all those enduring models; doesn't Men's Wearhouse know Fisker is bankrupt? (But then again, Pontiac's not around anymore, either.) But then I thought, the Karma is actually living on even after death.
We saw the Karma in "Paranoia" in theaters last month. It probably will show up in some more media over the next few months. But what if several years down the line, the Karma came to be directly associated with this decade the same way the DeLorean DMC-12 did for the '80s?
