Here's a better idea: Parent your freaking brats
I guess the message of this stupid pile of dreck from Volkswagen is that children are destructive, nasty little creatures who are totally incapable of being taught how to behave (or, at least, incapable of being taught how to behave when their mom is an easily-distracted, totally disinterested, self-absorbed jackass who lets them run around convenience stores unsupervised while she pumps gas.) The solution? Nope- it's not Unlimited Talk, Text and Streaming this time. It's to buy a car that allows you to get from Point A to Point B without stopping- so if your kids want to be horrible little monsters, they'll have to hurl themselves out of the moving car as it passes 7-11 to do it.
BTW, we know where the "mom" is in this ad- putting gas in the car, and (if she has any brain cells left) contemplating taking off, faking her own death, and starting a new life in another country. But why aren't there any store employees around to stop these awful creeps from doing so much damage? Are they just watching this happen? Are they distracted by the losers carefully picking out scratch-off tickets at the counter? Has the last ounce of life been sucked out of them and they are fully aware of what is going on at the store- but simply don't give a damn anymore? I mean, what the hell?
