Now this is a car commercial! January 10, 2006 8:05 am

Watch this video for the Volkswagon Polo titled “German engineering vs Arab engineering.” Warning! Work safe but potentially offensive to people that have lost their minds in political correctness. To these folks, I ask that you lighten up. We don’t make our world a better place by ignoring reality, or re-writing history to be less offensive. We certainly don’t make a blind man see by calling him “visually impaired.” Frankly I find political correctness patronizing and that’s offensive.

Some followup:

A commercial accidently released on the Internet depicts a Miiddle Eastern suicide bomber blowing himself up in a VW Polo automobile. The advertisement – with a tagline of “Polo. Small but tough.” – was meant to show the sturdiness of the car, since it contained the explosion. The spot was produced by the British group “Lee and Dan” who claim Volkswagen did not request the ad.
January 20, 2005 — Volkswagen is planning to take legal action against the masterminds behind a hoax VW commercial depicting a suicide bomber.
