I like the contrast but even if the truck runs to the natural gas it is a cement mixer all the same

similar, but not same, is running in the Czech Republic from year 1997.
Zapa beton ("Zapa concrete") had only 1 radio spot (theme in mafia helping people into the concrete/cement graves) and that together with their cars and factories resulted in their overall distinction.

have a look: http://www.zapa-beton.cz/index.php?option=com_rsgallery2&Itemid=8

their factories often respond to the place - e. g. near to the "battle of 3 caesars" is in the shape of a soldier from Napoleon times, another one close to huge neolithic settlement has got similar ornaments and so on....
