     Well the Porsche company certainly subscribes to this theory. Check 
out their latest TV ad that talks about "... expecting any 
Porsche to lead a quiet life may be asking a bit too much..." (Loud 
music in background etc.) 
There seems to be a definite trend occuring with these "Loud" commercials 
promoting noisy lifestyles.
