(Advert) VW Polo

Thanks to star_dancer for finding this one. I doubt this will ever make it past the advertising commission though.

VW POLO Advert

Not to be watched by those of you without a very dark sense of humour.

First...OMG I can't believe VW made that advert. I love it.

Second...You need to get on the WarrenEllisCom RSS. I'd link it but its easier for you to just look at my whois info.

Well for one you woulda seen this commercial yesterday. But also other odd and interesting news stuffs.

Besides, its Warren Ellis. Everyone should watch the man's weird mind in action :o)

Oh, it's not designed to get past the advertising commission. It's designed to be spread via e-mail and online blogs/journals.

Congratulations. You are a vector for online viral marketing....

Happy to be of assistance :-p

I think this sort of advertising is certainly going to boom. It's also good because it means that advertising will have to make sure their adverts are interesting (or shocking) because the dull ones just won't get passed around.

Very observant
Yeah, makes perfect sense when someone points it out...

Makes you wonder if there will be a whole new generation of people graduating with marketing degrees with specialisations in adverts that are targeted to hyper-specic micro audiences (such as UK bloggers)? That is if there isn't already...

For the record I thought the advert itself was in appalling taste but they're certainly clever folks...

Re: Very observant
Ohm if you read the right magazine, you can see that hyper-targeted viral marketing is really big business now. It slips under most people's cynicism radar, which is was makes it so clever. We'll see more and more of this in the next five years.
