But despite that, great quiz! Keep making more. I have only one suggestion, which will be in my next comment.
People shop in Walmart-owned locations in India or Latin America while at the same time thinking of Walmart as a big, far-away, American thing - no harm done.
I think it's totally fine to include the Walmart logo here BTW, I only stuck my oar in to say that it is legitimately seen as culturally American...
I do think Walmart could be replaced by a more globally recognised brand though.
But yes, Wal-Mart has without questions enough standing for a global quiz, I don't even know which other store brand would be more famous the world around.
However, I only missed North Face who I've never heard of but assume are skinning Swedes for profit. Pretty good, there always have to be on or to obscure ones.
I know you get [often rightly] peeved by people denigrating the USA, but this does not look like one of those cases. Walmart is legitimately seen by many people all over the world as a very US brand, probably mainly because it doesn't operate as Walmart in the vast majority of its international locations. If you shop in an ASDA in the UK or a Despensa Familiar in Nicaragua you'd never see the "sun" logo or the word Walmart, even as you add to their enormous revenue.
Clearly a big part of their international business strategy is not to bustle in and try to Americanify local shopping customs, and it's entirely possible to do all your shopping in a chain owned by Walmart without ever knowing that Walmart existed outside the US - and without ever having seen the Walmart logo.
My last comment, I know probably reads as passive aggressive, but I edited and rewrote it probably 12 times, removing any true aggression passive or otherwise, before settling on that and it's actually sincere. I know that comments like the one just before it I was responding to come from a place of pain. I'm not saying I'm better. But I do wish people would stop. I've been getting steadily more and more misanthropic since 2015 and I'm not sure how much more of the Internet I can take before I just stop interacting with everyone completely.
Anyway, like I said, I'm genuinely sorry if you feel annoyed or frustrated or bitter or defensive or anything else similar, and also if I in any way contributed to that.
And I'm sure one day Walmart will be as globally recognised as Beats by Dre :)
