Any responsible husband will tell you that family comes first. In extreme cases the exotic curling up in his garage could rate equally to a loved one. Manufacturers are quick to sense this commonly observed weakness in the car-loving man to showcase its product as one they will brag about and get mesmerized in even in the most sensitive situations.

In certain times it leads to a good laugh, but we’re certain the latest Volkswagen Passat (NMS) commercial has not amused every Canadian resident.

Watch the commercial and tell us if Volkswagen has crossed the line. Does Volkswagen mean to say the NMS driver is irresponsible like he’s shown in reel life?

      I would beg to differ. Volkswagen is one of those companies which come out with creative and kickass ads. (do check Phaetons hands ad on youtube)

    Just a harmless and humorous advt. Not to be taken seriously. It never happens like that in reality, why the fuss?

    Well, everyone knows this is never going to be the reality. But ads being ads, always tell a story, a tall claim. It is appealing to the car enthusiast in a man, it speaks a language that only petrolheads can understand. It is a celebration of the car. Advertising is meant to be this way. An exaggeration of sorts.
