Is it just me or is VW desecrating the beetle?

Maybe it is just me, but using the beetle to sell SUVs and go around womanizing seems like a new low for VW. (in reference to certain new commercials)

I absolutely loved the early diesels, the rabbit/golf handles awesomely for the buck, Air cooled reliable efficient machines dating waaay back, electronic fuel injection in my squareback back in the 70s, even the TDI has it's own following. Cool little Ghias. Cars that FLOAT?!? And run the baja 1000, etc. etc.

They have a tremendous history and lineage, I really hope they pull it together soon, as I hope "detroit" will also.
