Perhaps a repost but here's a link to three of the best commercials I've seen in a long time. Peter Stormare at his best, he gets even better if you watch it a couple of times.

VW have great ads. I remember the VW polo car bomb add. Whilst this wasn't strictly a VW add, but made by an advertising company to prove a concept. was brilliant. But VW are suing the company that made it

That brings back memories of a "National Lampoon" magazine add from the 70's.

The (fake) VW full page add had a picture of a Volkswagen Beetle floating down down a river with this caption.


IF TED KENNEDY HAD BEEN DRIVING A VOLKSWAGEN, HE WOULD BE PRESIDENT TODAY!

As one can imagine there was so much hell raised by the Democratic Party that all the issues that contained the add where pulled out of the stores and the magazine offered to buy back all issues that had been sold.

Heh, heh, they didn't get my copy. It's still stashed around here somewhere in a box, along with the other issue on how to insert a "Clampax Pontoon." :D :D

They didn't get my copy either pigboat, but believe it or not my ex-wife threw it out because she thought it was in 'bad taste'.:*

Just one reason she is my ex.:suspect:
