beetle buggin'

I’m somewhat unclear on the nature of this promotion: Win a new Beetle by taking a test drive with HP photo paper. How do they know I’m really printing on the blank side of old journal articles, with a dusty black ink cartridge?

Those issues aside, it’s fun to see what a big budget corporate tie-in produces: Beetle Buggin’ is a swanky flash game in which you drive a tiny Volkswagen Beetle around a desktop littered with HP printer components. Hoowah! You can even download the 1.4mb file to play it offline! (the .exe emulates great under wine.)

Shouldn’t I be working? Oh right right right.
