    I can't believe VW would make an ad like that. It's both racist and unsettling.[​IMG] Is it an official VW ad or something else?

    Recently I heard about a bizarre car ad running in Israel but I've forgotten the details, I can't help but wonder if this is the one I read about. Still, it does seem a bit extreme. It's possible this is one of those spec ads, like the VW Passengers Wanted ad I saw on adcritic.com.

    Good for you, they didn't make it.

    I'd like to see it but have never been able to use QuickTime

    yeah not a wise choice by VW. that is a polo, which can be considered one size 'down' from what we know as a golf. there is a lupo, which is even smaller. both are sold in europe. i get a kick out of companies that claim their hybrids to be the most economical cars in the world, without knowing (or caring) that the lupo diesel can get 90 mpg on the highway.

    They did not choose it. VW did not produce this spoof.

    [shrug] I thought it was pretty funny. In horrible taste, but funny nonetheless.

    It was probably made by the same people who created the infamous (among animal lovers) Ford Sport-Ka commercials.

    Yep, the ad was done by an outside party and aired originally as part of a spoof oriented program and then captured for the web [​IMG]

    There is going to be legal action over the ad.

    Also, if you received the ad via email, there may have been a virus attached.

    Story here.
