VW Polo viral advert draws laughs, jeers
Viral advertisements grab your attention by shocking. That's certainly what this VW Polo ad does. The ad is shot well enough to run on UK TV, but deals with a subject that's just sensitive enough that everyone wants to disavow any knowledge of it. So many contradicting stories have appeared in various publications that it looks like all parties are going to keep trying them on until not a one of them seems plausible. We think it's funny (but respect your right to think otherwise.) (Click picture to watch.)
