What Is Pissing Me Off Today - Part 4

The VW car commercial where two people are chatting about whatever and WHAM, someone hits them. It's too trumatizing and, more importantly, it isn't funny. Bad no funny, bad!!

Lesson - Don't buy a VW, you'll get hit. Buy one of those other cars that can off road in the Himalayas and travel thorugh rain slicks without losing traction instead.

They are excellent from a marketing standpoint because they grab the viewers attention. How many traffic jams do you get to drive thru because someone just had a fender bender and people WANT TO LOOK? Well the marketing people that did these commercials are very bright and know that. I bet these commercials get very good view ratings based on other commercials.

I love the marketing tactic they use and applaud them for it. Its not some dry templated car commercial. Kudos to VW.

It's my blog, I'm allowed to rant on someone else's bitching (thanks for the idea, btw.)

I was talking to a friend who likes the commericals and it clarified my thoughts on them. At first I thought they were powerfull. What bothers me is their over-use. I think with a commercial with that kind of powerfull content needs to be used sparringly, not several times a day.
