Lifted this Off USA Today:

Poking fun at bland, middle-of-the-road sedans, Subaru has launched an ad campaign hawking the "2011 Mediocrity."
The milquetoast car comes in "medium crumb" or "stale biscuit" colors and is designed to "get you from A to B without anybody noticing, and that'* a good thing."
At the website, fake buyers can build their own boring sedan. It comes in three versions: base, convenience and power packages -- all priced within a few hundred dollars of each other.
Subaru encourages people to "click here to build a better car," which takes you to the Subaru site and a quick commercial for the 2011 Legacy sedan.
The funniest part of the whole thing is the Facebook fan page for the 2011 Mediocrity, which includes comments from a significant number of people who don't get the joke, like this one:
"I Honestly Thought This Whole Mediocrity Car Was A Complete JOKE... Sorry But It'* HORRID!.. I Guess the Objective Was To Make A Vehicle With Only The Basic Needs, Simple.. But Its Just.. UGLY... & then The Price Made me LMFAO!"
Automakers are trying to change up their advertising strategies to keep buyers interested in a down market. According to The Wall Street Journal, Volkswagen'* ads will focus on the brand'* relatively cheap price compared with the competition.
Whatever. So long as they keep the funny coming, we're happy.
