I'm in Canada and I never knew the song wasn't German. And it doesn't really matter, it's just a joke. Pretty funny too. If you're going question the accuracy and believability of every commercial on TV you'd probably find about 70% of them have issues. But that isn't the point of advertising, entertain and inform is the point. Just don't lie about your product.

Sheesh. We got some harsh critics on this site. If this is crap than 95% of advertising is crap because there's a lot more far worse than this. Personally, I thought it was funny. A nice thought. It raised my esteem of Subura a notch, which is quite the accomplishment, let me tell you.

Even though I would much rather buy a German car over anything else... and no amount of advertising would change my mind... this commercial was awesome. To be that picky over what song they're playing is a bit over the top. The commercials I'm subjected to on a daily basis, well it's just nice to laugh now and again instead of flicking endlessly during each program break.

Not exactly the freshest of ideas, but nicely done in any case.

It's okay if you just want to make vacuous fun of German engineering but I bet it doesn't do it to convince people to spend money on this "car"

i'm from germany myself, and i think if the canadians relate falco to germany who gives a fuck about him being austrian? it's completly irrelevant. nice ad, beside the fact that we had an ad some time before in germany, that showed engineers testing a car an the boss finally saying: "do you know what i don't like about the car?....We didn't made it!" wich is veeery similar. does anyone remember the brand it was for?

Doesn't anyone find it ironic that this car ad features a song by someone who died in a car accident--in a Japanese car, no less?
