No matter what you are into, I am sure somewhere along the way, you have been give a variety of information on old wives tales. Personally, we have heard everything from colored motor oiled is actually flavored to Windex being the “end all be all” for most of the problems you encounter on a daily basis. What makes old wives tales so good are the absurdity of them and the seriousness that they are delivered with.
Thinking about that, if you approached your grandma or great grandma and asked her about diesels, we could totally see these topics coming up. The first one that came up is that diesels are loud. While the old women are debating this, they are yelling at each other about turning the car on and off. Then the reference of the diesel that one of them owned in 1982 came up. Clearly, that is a marker to compare all current diesel car models with.
But the highlight of the video is the fact that the old ladies are convinced that “rappers” like to drive diesels so they can listen to their music loud. Now, there’s an interesting concept, a whole group of rappers who only choose to drive diesels for the sake of being able to turn up their rhymes.
We laughed until we cried just about. The whole thing ends with them debating on how you would say Passat? Hilarious. In our opinion, the only thing this ad was missing was the old women to get out at Wendy’s and ask, “Where’s the beef?”
All we can say is, well played Volkswagen. Well played!
