Crispin Spoofs Jetta Commercial With Passat Crash Ad


Crispin Porter + Bogusky AD: "Dude, since everyone's been talking about those crash ads we did for the Jetta, wouldn't it be cool if we made an ad for the Passat where two chicks were talking about the ads while driving together and then...get this....and then...they get in a crash!?" Alex: "Yea, dude. Go with it. That rocks." Oh, and along the lines of spoofing ads, a second one has a bunch of guys riding in a Passat station wagon (as if a bunch of guys would ever be caught dead in that Soccer Mom ride) talking about one of those four hour erection ads before they get in a crash.

The next commercial will be two different cars talking. One car will be full of PC users, the other car will be Mac users. Then they crash (pun intended) into each other.

Considering these spots are actually running (I've seen them over the past few days), what makes them spoofs?

My misuse of the word "spoof" makes them spoofs:-)

how meta is crispin? easy boys, its just advertsing.

I saw that ad and actually liked it. What's funny is that I never realized the ads were for the Jetta. I thought they were for VW as a whole. Huh. Guess the ads don't do a great job of selling the car, just a car.

More belly button gazing from the "Craziest Ad Guys In America"

Don't the crazies at Crispin have better things to do on their clients' time?!
