                That's even more funny considering I just bought my sister's VW Beetle.

                  of course such a racist and demeaning-to-arabs ad could never be shown in the USA, only Europe.

                    Believe it or not the blog I found it on was discussing just how tasteless and insensitive the ad was Turns out it was a fake, VW doesn't acknowledge making it.

                      Heh. I guess I just assumed it was a fake, as I can't imagine a company having to promote their products with something so many would view as racist and demeaning. I mean, comedy is comedy, but I can't see that ad doing more good than harm were it a real ad.

                        Don't forget that companies have been producing "fake commercial's" like this one for a couple years. Remember the Ford one where the cats head gets cut off?

                        What they do is, through back channels hire an obscure ad agency to produce it, then slip it onto the internet.

                        This is a type of guerilla marketing campaign, that generates a lot of buzz about your product, and allows the company to get huge exposure, all the while denying any connection to the "distasteful" ad.

                        I wouldn't be surprised if it was entirely but indirectly produced with VW money, but so buried in through multiple levels of ad agencies (and lawyers) so no one could ever connect the ad directly to them.

                          Is there any evidence to back that claim up?

                            Read a bit about "guerrilla marketing", and "subviral marketing".

                            I watched a whole CBC episode about this stuff, advertising is absolutely unbelieveable.

                            The internet scam of the videos of a giant robot made from BMW Mini car parts is a good example, BMW Mini later admitted that they produced the ad's.

                            Article on the marketing scam


                            A lot of those Mastercard "priceless" comercials were actually put out by MC themselves and first they "denied any knowledge" of them only to admit later that they had some of them made up. Got their money's worth out of those I'd bet.

                            Excellent article about this stuff
