Default Oprah

so she is giving away the new redesigned VW Beetle to every member of her audience when they come out in May of 2011 and VW will pick up the taxes etc. Come to find out that Oprah likes to drive her Beetle around town

I happen to be at the VW dealer today and the salesman didn't know when the new Beetles were coming out so I called him and and told him to watch Oprah..She also gave away Apple IPAD's (I plan on purchasing one for myself for Christmas)

has any CruiseMate ever been at a taping of Oprah?..perhaps Paul should invite Oprah to a future CM group cruise and she might bring us gifts

smart move on the part of VW USA to generate excitement about the upcoming redesign...

She is very smart. She gets the cars for free in exchange for ads, and then gives them away, as if they are from her.

Very much like a game show, but without the wheel.

Which day would you all have liked to be part of....this group thought thay missed it all, but, boy did thy clean up big time!

The Allure cruise would be nice, but, gimme, that car and Ipad I had my mitts on the Ipad ofr the 1st time on the Eclipse,and I want one too! An eldelry woman sitting next to me on the plane had one, doing crossword puzzles

All, I can think of when I see the scraming throng in Oprah's audience is the SNL parody..it's just spot on ...

I have had the fortune or misfortune to have never seen an Oprah broadcast.

I did once own an original beetle, and the thing crawled all over Western Europe.

I've never been to an Oprah show but I know someone living in the Chicago area who was at a show two years ago and got to have lunch with her after the taping .She said Oprah was very friendly .
