German engineering ist in das haus, ja?

That's pronounced "Chermahn".


Failure To Fire continues to deliver.  This one reminded me of the great VW "Unpimp My Ride" commercials.



Both of these are hilarious.  Representing Deutcheland yo.

Rather bad taste considering it's a mockery of FPS Russia whose manager of the show was as-sinated recently. Sorry committed suicide by tying himself to a chair and shooting himself in the back of the head.

@knottedprop, you're quite wrong. i suggest you watch the Slingshot Channel on youtube.

The Un-Pimp Your Auto spots date to something like 2006. They didn't run widely (MTV, I think, maybe Spike TV), because they're a little more edgy than the usual run of VW advertising (VW uses a lot of humor, but it's almost all gentle, going back to the DDB Needham print ads of the 1960s). My personal favorite VW ad is this one from 1984: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3zcm4oS9IaM

That is just damn funny.
And, the VW ads ran more widely than you might think. I saw all of them. I don't get Spike TV and I certainly don't watch the former MTV.
They should change the name of that network to contrived "reality" TV.

That reminds me that I haven't seen one of German Slingshot Guy's videos in quite a while!
