Ramadan is the name of a month which is celestial for muslims and the shape of crescent is a symbol for islam. So the ad made for a kind of celebration.

I find it hard to believe that VW cranks so many ads every week; they must have a bottomless pot of gold for a budget. Or maybe there's a bunch of people posting fake-ass, student level ads on here... I think it's the latter.

I think, therefore... yeah.

...Or it could just be that there is an entire world that requires VW ads, not just your country?

“Ramadan Kareem” means Ramadan is generous, opulent and blessing.

This is the traditional greeting sentence used during the lunar month, Ramadan, in which Muslims fast.

Being a lunar month, the most obvious visual symbolizing it is the crescent.

These ads – related to tradition and religion – mislead or don’t deliver the message if they are out of the box. To work they simply have to be traditional on their own.

I work for a well known international brand the Middle East and we do approx the same thing for them during Ramadan which is going to start in 10 days. And yes I believe VW would do the same.

Such as this Levis ad...

in the ad the thousands of Muslim performing Salat (salat is religious devotion in islam)
