That's pretty good. I've heard about this in the news, but I have not seen the actual ad until now. You just have to laugh at a suicide bomber that blows up nothing but himself because his car is too strong.

In the advertisement world, there are two things that cannot be beaten.
- Advertisements made in France. On average, 60% of these ads crack me up, unbelievable!!!
- The ads by VW. Example: the guy who washes his ...neighbour's Passat because he fell in love with it, or the guy whose heart rate is shown on a graph and where the highest pitch of the day was when he started up his Gold GTI, beating by a great margin the number two which was "making out with Sophie" or smtgh

Actually, this was not an official VW ad, and VW started a lawsuit against the creators due to the sensitivity of the subject. It's a real play on the VW Polo "small but tough" ads that VW produces. Definitely innovative, but completely off colour.
