    Dr Seuss on marketing the modern MG

    Post by patpending on Thu May 09, 2013 4:07 pm

    The Punter is sitting quietly searching
    Autotrader for an affordable family car, when salesman Lee flits
    across his field of vision standing on a sort of dog and holding a
    sign "I BE LEE".




    Lee then passes in the opposite
    direction standing on a sort of pink panther and holding a sign "LEE
    I BE".




    PUNTER (putting his phone to silent in
    annoyance):
    That Lee-I-Be!
    That Lee-I-Be!
    I do not like
    that
    Lee-I-Be!

    LEE (presenting a brochure on a plate):

    Do you like
    the new MG?

    PUNTER:

    I do not like it,
    Lee-I-Be.
    I
    will not drive
    the new MG.

    LEE:

    Would you drive it

    Here or there?

    PUNTER:

    I would not drive it
    here or
    there.
    I would not drive it
    anywhere.
    I do not like
    the
    new MG.
    I do not like it,
    Lee-I-Be.



    LEE:
    Would you drive it
    by a
    house?
    Would you drive it
    with a mouse?



    PUNTER:
    I do not drive it
    by a
    house.
    I do not drive it
    with a mouse.
    I do not drive
    it
    here or there.
    I do not drive it
    anywhere.
    I do not
    like the new MG.
    I do not like it, Lee-I-Be.

    LEE:
    Would
    you drive it
    into a box (junction having first ascertained that
    your exit road or lane is clear)?
    Would you drive it
    with a
    fox?



    PUNTER:
    Not into a box (junction
    having first ascertained that my exit road or lane is clear).
    Not
    with a fox.
    Not by a house.
    Not with a mouse.
    I would not
    drive it here or there.
    I would not drive it anywhere.
    I do not
    like the new MG.
    I do not like it, Lee-I-Be.



    LEE:
    Would you? Could you?
    drive
    the car?
    drive it! drive it!
    Here the keys are.



    PUNTER:
    I would not ,
    could
    not,
    drive the car.



    LEE:
    You may like it.
    You will
    see.
    But do not drive into a tree!




    PUNTER:
    I would not, could not into
    a tree.
    Not drive the car! You let me be.

    I do not drive it
    into a box. (junction having first ascertained that my exit road or
    lane is clear)
    I do not drive it with a fox.
    I do not drive it
    by a house.
    I do not drive it with a mouse.
    I do not drive it
    here or there.
    I do not drive it anywhere.
    I do not like the
    new MG.
    I do not like it, Lee-I-Be.



    LEE:
    A train! A train!
    A train! A
    train!
    Could you, would you
    on a train?



    PUNTER:
    Not on a train! Not into a
    tree!
    Not in that car! Lee! Let me be!
    I would not, could not,
    in a box. Etc.
    I could not, would not, with a fox.

    LEE:
    Say!
    In the dark?
    Here in the
    dark!
    Would you, could you, in the dark?



    PUNTER:
    I would not, could not,
    in
    the dark.


    I expect the headlights are Lucas,

    for a start.



    LEE:
    Would you, could you,
    in the
    rain?



    PUNTER:
    I would not, could not, in
    the rain. Even though the windscreen wipers fall easily to hand on
    the quality steering column stalk.
    Not in the dark. Not on a
    train.
    Not drive the car. Not into a tree.
    I do not like it,
    Lee, you see.
    Not by a house. Not into a box. Etc.
    Not with a
    mouse. Not with a fox.
    I will not drive it here or there.
    I do
    not like it anywhere!

    the new MG?



    PUNTER:
    I do not
    like
    it,
    Lee-I-Be.



    LEE:
    Could you, would you,
    with a
    goat?



    PUNTER:
    I would not,
    could
    not.
    with a goat!



    LEE:
    Would you, could you,
    on a
    boat?

    I do not drive it ANYWHERE!

    I do not
    like
    the new
    MG!

    I do not like it,
    Lee-I-Be.



    LEE:
    You do not like it.
    SO you
    say.
    Try it! Try it!
    And you may.
    Try it and you may I say.






    PUNTER:
    Lee!
    If you will let me
    be,
    I will try it.
    You will see.


    <has an extended test drive>



    Say!
    I like the new MG!
    I do!! I
    like it, Lee-I-Be!
    And I would drive it in a boat!
    And I would
    drive it with a goat...
    And I will drive it in the rain.
    And in
    the dark. And on a train.
    And drive the car, not into a tree.
    It
    is so good, so good, you see!

    So I will drive it into a box.
    (junction having first ascertained that my exit road or lane is
    clear).
    And I will drive it with a fox.
    And I will drive it by
    a house.
    And I will drive it with a mouse.
    And I will drive it
    here and there.
    Say! I will drive it ANYWHERE!

    I do so
    like
    the new MG!
    Thank you!
    Thank you,
    Lee-I-Be!
