Does the ad campaign for Volkswagen's Routan creep anyone else out? Whose idea was it to link the words "baby" and "German engineering?"

These are the things I think about when I should be asleep...

I don't know why, but those ads amuse me. Brooke does a great job. It's all so insulting, yet humorous. I do see your point, though! So yeah, I'm not sure how they managed to approve those ads.

It just amazes me that this is what they came up with. Probably spent millions on the campaign!

It was probably Brooke's idea!

As I so often do, I'm going to have to chime in here and agree with THI!

I can't help it... I KNEW she put something in my drink.
Also, she bribes me with Taleggio!


But I will say that 'babies' and 'German engineering' sound very bizarre when they're used in the same sentence.

Brooke does have baby issues. Using her just adds another layer of WTF.

At least there's not a talking baby involved. Is there? ::shudder::

It's not just you! I said the same thing when I first saw it!

Thank you! I had something profound to add, but I kind of got lost in your icon...

Oh God, I ALWAYS change the channel when I see Brooke Shields. I don't understand what babies and that stupid car have to do with each other, and Brooke being all smarmy about it bugs.

As I said above, using Brooke Shields just makes the ads even stranger. She doesn't bug me, but if she did, those ads would be unbearable!

Seriously? Oh Volksvagen, how far you have fallen from FunkengrĂ¼ven.
