Offensive commercial (VW Polo)

I hope this isn't a repost. And let's not turn it into a flamefest but wow I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this commercial:

I personally don't find it offensive but I can imagine it has pissed off some people.

Wow I know for sure that wouldn't go over well here in the touchy US of A. but I lived over in Europe for 8+ years and they are alot more laid back and a commercial like that won't cause much of a stir. They have more arrgessive commercials than this over there. But yeah here in the states an big NO NO. "Shame on Janet!!!!!!!!"

I have to agree w/ Operator. Political touchiness is particularly concentrated in the US.

Usually the Aussies double up on everything, because a lot of them don't visit the rest of the website.

Actually, that's a fake commercial and was NOT created by VW. Saw some stuff on the news last night about videos being made for the internet that aren't created or endorsed by the companies they are "advertising."

Awwww, that's too bad. VW got a LOT cooler in my book with that.

Still, funny as all hell that commercial was.

Don't mark this topic with offensive, it's fucking hilarious.

And if you're offended, you suck.

Enjoy your spahgetti, you're very rude.
