it's South Africa driver seat is on the right there. She should be more worried about her son though as he is about to suffocate to an icecream.

But ehm ;p the ad, it's oke =)

No, she shouldn't. She's a passenger.

South African ad.

Driver sits on the right, passenger sits on the left, just like in the UK.

you are right, She is a passenger because this seat is a little behind than the other and also she is resting, sounds like relaxing...

It's a beautiful ad. Idea wise it's not completely there, but overall I give it a winning score. It'll pick up some hardware.

Fun for the driver, okay, but fun for the kids? Or the passenger? I don't see how, strapped up in their seatbelts, waiting endlessly in a massive roadblock on the way to the beach... Or am I being too negative now. I kinda like the visual but it leaves me with too much questionmarks. 5/10

Call me crazy, but I think the idea of the visual is that the kids built the car as a sort of huge sand castle while playing on the beach - where the Voltswagen Jetta brought them.

Although difficult for that sand seat to sustain the girl body, the idea prevails.

The whole concept is for the company to reach the children in the family.
In that way, they get the children to tell their parents:
"That looks fun! I wanna try that too... mooooom, I want that car".
In that way, the comany effects the children, and that is, what is called "Pester Power", which is fobidden in Denmark.
