Sat Feb 05, 2005 11:16 am

Not all of you will find this funny, but I just had to post it anyway.

My quick search did not yield any previous postings:

No harm done, though the previous thread was not that popular...

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.  Smile

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  Big thumbs up

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.

Not a VW commercial, but the one where a guy who deices his Golf V only to find out it's the wrong car is hilarious  Laugh out loud

Go3Team: spend some money and you get a car with more power  Wink/being sarcastic very simple. My polo isn't underpowered at all.

I used to have a Polo TDI75 and it felt way underpowered.

UTA, you are in Ireland? When I was in Ireland in 2004 I had problems driving more than 100 km/h . Or where did you use the TDI75?

I have a Polo 1.4 16V 75CV and yes, it's underpowered, but fuel consumptions are really low.
