Terrorist VW ad makes rounds

A parody VW ad featuring a terrorist who pulls up at a cafe then blows himself up – leaving the car intact – makes an interesting case on how advertisers may no longer be in control of the message.

VW is flipping mad and threatening to sue but the free mileage it will get for the controversy will far exceed any ad campaign its agency can dream of.

I suspect creators Lee and Dan will probably get a lot more prospective phone calls for this.
