I see you've decided to find your own entertainment :)

Wow...that's ad walks the fine line...I'm suprised it was actually put out by a company like VW...I mean, the racial/religious backfire implications...pretty gutsy...pretty freaking funny though

Great commercial. It might air if it was a Chevy or Ford truck parked in front of a church, car blows up, pan to Tom Brady smiling, the F-18s fly overhead, fireworks go off, all's well, cue that fucking John Mellancamp 'This Is Our Country.'

Just like Snickers viral marketing, VW is denouncing the ad...

I love how this ad is "offensive" and yet your average episode of 24 gets 15 million viewers and critical raves.

This was a viral internet ad from a few years ago, so VW can get away with it. I think they somehow got some 3rd party to make it so they couldn't be held responsible.

Well I do think this one is more funny and more "shocking" than the Snickers, but that's not saying much...

I was totally right about the Snickers commercial - and I'm right about this one too :wink:

Viral for the win. Noone pays attention to tv-ads anyway - but when they're on youtube it's *totally different* [/valley girl accent]

That xbox ad was filmed in Buenos Aires, i just noticed...
Turn up the radio. Turn up the tape machine. Look into the sunset up ahead. Roll the windows down for a better taste of the cool desert wind. Ah yes. This is what it's all about. Total control now.
