I bring you another product that would never be marketed in the United States: the Ford "Ka." Ironically, pronounced the way a Bostoner would say, "car."

I think the reason you'll never see this product name in the States is that if you saw two of them together, you'd have Ka Ka. And no one wants that.


  1. Interesting thought - but have you noticed whenever you need to you always say to yourself "Focus, Focus!"

    Ka is cool have a look at this

  3. I have no doubt that the product itself would do very well in the States, but I'll be very surprised if they brand it as "Ka" there. I have a feeling they'll call it something else. But hey - I could be wrong! Maybe the US will be full of Ka in due course.
