So they are targetting naughty boys with the spectacular insight that all men are overgrown boys who love to depend on quirky comics to buy their cars without first knowing how it looks like or what it does or really no benefits whatsoever other than that it is endorsed by Garfield sans paw trimming?

If Charles Schultz was still alive, he'd never allow someone to give Charlie Brown a mohawk. I don't care if you pick on Garfield though.

Brilliant campaign.

Exaggerating the features or actions of cartoon characters. You don't get the ads because you probably don't know these cartoons.

Cute campaign with a simple idea that is 'Polo' I reckon. I myself have been working on high prestige auto ads and I rarely get the chance to have fun with a car ad. Me likey muchly most VW stuff.

garbage campaign. Definitely contains a "so what" factor to it. You can slap any car in there and it would work. "Chevy Cobalt. Just a bit wilder. The Chevy Cobalt SS."

also, in this particular execution, WHO is this bee? All the others contain worldwide, iconic cartoon characters. This must be the B-list version. Obviously, mickey mouse was too pricey.
