"You Either Get Shot Through the Head or You Have a VW"

VW-suicide.png

British humor--second to none. While it's been 30 days since my last suicide spot, this one after the jump... isn't. I explain--you follow along: It's for the new VW Scirocco running on the BBC's Top Gear with car freaks Jeremy Clarkson and James May. Branded entertainment with a suicide chaser. This series of fake spots skirts the issue of death and dying (and the UK's advertising regulatory guidelines on little things like suicide) by posing those scenarios as a hypothetical. So here it goes again, will anyone be offended at a fictionalized depiction buried in a spoof? Does context matter? (Isn't the real question, why would someone do it over a VW?)

The full clip that the spot below was taken from can be found here and included several other spoof versions.
