Truly Pointless Passat Commercial
"Have you ever wondered what the motorcade driver drives when she's not in a motorcade?"
No. Not ever. Not even once. Has anyone else ever wondered that? I really have to doubt it.
Am I supposed to know who this woman is? Her name is promoted in the title. Several YouTube posters mention her. She's called an Actress in the description. So she's not a motorcade driver. She's an actress in a stupid commercial which starts with a stupid question nobody asks.
So I guess the idea we're supposed to get out of this is that
1. Motorcade drivers are daydreaming, bored-out-of-their minds robots who really, really hate driving motorcades (hmmm, kind of makes you wonder why you chose "motorcade driver" as a career....
2. When they aren't at their Job from Hell, Motorcade drivers love to drive....their Volkswagen Passats.
3. Amanda Klein is someone we're supposed to recognize, trust, and associate with Volkswagen.
Well, thanks, Volkswagen. Where do I go to get that thirty seconds of my life back?
