Asian American Commercial Watch: Volkswagen

Volkswagen’s latest entertaining ad campaign is their “Sign Then Drive” event where you can get a Jetta, CC, or Tiguan for “practically just your signature.” I’ve actually test driven a Lexus with an Asian American car saleswoman before, so I was happy to see this commercial. [EDITORS NOTE: If this was an inappropriate blog, I would clearly make a crass comment about being grateful that the Asian women are selling the cars and not driving them. But that would be inappropriate. Hey-yo!]

Contrast this to this other Volkswagen ad, the woman appears to be a cute, quiet, demure trophy girlfriend as her boyfriend is checking out the car. You can view the ad after the jump: What do you think?

Thanks for rating this! Now tell the world how you feel - .
