Old people can parallel park in Volkswagens


In this German spot (posted below) by Grabarz & Partner for Volkswagen's parking-assist feature, a granny deftly parallel parks a Passat. Or does she? In the middle of the process, the plucky senior morphs into a stubbly-faced young guy in a granny wig, then changes back again. Gramps in the passenger seat seems surprised. This commercial probably passes for a laugh riot in Germany, where droopy bratwurst on a Saturday night is considered real funny stuff. Actually, the ad scores because it's quirky enough to be memorable, without being ridiculously forced or over the top. For that, the Germans have Rammstein. Via The Denver Egotist.
