The Drum Pump / Automotive Advertising Connection

There is a surprising connection between the drum pump and automotive advertising. This connection although surprising is not so easy to explain. Moreover, it probably would not be easy to explain within the confines of a three hundred word blog post. Alas, that being said that is the task that my editors have tasked me with. For that reason there is not another word to waste seeing as this first paragraph has been largely taken up with explaining why this task must be performed rather than explaining the problem itself. Such is the spirit of this problem and such is the matter that must be contended with.


For the purposes of this blog post let us make the assumption that drum pumps and tote pumps although different are close enough to be considered the same thing. Therefore, whether we are talking about a drum pump or a tote pump we know that a connection exists between pumps (let us say) and automotive advertising. This connection essentially revolves around the fact that automobiles are composed of various parts some of which would fall into the general category of a pump. Although pumps might be used in the construction of automobiles, this does not necessarily mean that there is a connection between pumps and automobile advertising.

Nevertheless, this connection does exist and we shall attempt to use this last paragraph to establish the parameters of this connection. As consumers of advertising, we (myself and all the readers included) are not aware of pumps being displayed in any capacity in any sort of automobile advertisement. However, we know that the pumps exist within the automobiles displayed in the advertising. The question remains whether this is enough to establish a connection that is worth writing a three paragraph blog post about. The answer is apparently, Yes.
