Volkswagen- you have my permission to bludgeon these idiots and leave them in the snow
Commerical #1: Yeah, I almost want to test-drive a Volkswagen so I can see the look on the salesman's face when I tell him I want to go buy a Christmas tree and strap it on the top of a car I have not yet committed to buy. That's going to happen.
Commercial #2: Can we please get the phrase "the twins" forever banned from commercials? Twins are individual children. They have different names, personalities, wants, and needs. They were born at roughly the same time, that's it. They don't share anything other than a birthday and relatives. Every time I hear someone utter the phrase "the twins" I want to reach out and punch them in the face- and don't even get me started on parents who dress two kids born on the same day in identical clothing. Gross.
Both Commercials: "Can the test drive be over now?" got old several years ago. I've taken test drives. The salesman always decides when it's over. Depicting salesmen as wimpy, helpless baggage at the mercy of customers isn't amusing, and I'm sure the actual salesmen don't appreciate the lame "humor" in this at all.
"Can the test drive be over now?" Damn right it can. Take the keys and tell the customers that the car is heading back to the showroom, and it's not going on any more errands before it does because it's not a rental, jagoffs. Ugh I hate this crap.
