How do you feel about the new Volkswagon commercial??

Personally, I hate it. This is the commerccial with Brooke Shields saying that women are getting pregnant so they can buy this new model of Volkswagon minivan...How down grading for a mother to protrey women like that. I don't find ANY humor in it!! How about you?

  • Excuse my language but I FUCKING hate those commercials. They're stupid and pointless. I think Brooke is an idiot for doing them and I can't WAIT for them to go off air....

  • Nah, it doesn't bother me, but for some reason, I want to bitch slap that compulsive liar from the Glade commercials.

  • They are really stupid there is no point in them at all. My husband hates them and turnes the channel when they come on!

  • I don't mind them...I'm not that over-analytical or easily offended. I'm sure she did not shoot those commercials with the intent of degrading women in any way. I think they are just light-hearted humor and have no malicious intent...


    ...but as I said, I'm not that tempermental.

  • Uh, no they don't bother me. They are meant to be to be a joke, which should be obvious...and to highlight that it is a good family car. Like the previous poster, I am not that over-analytical or easily offended either. Of all the things out there that people should be offended over, this surprises me.

  • Good lord, is there anything people won't bitch about?

    Get a sense of humor, get a life, and if you really hate the commercials, get a DVR and fast forward through them.

  • I think they are hilarious....although I do not think they need to be played on Nick Jr. during the day. I think that's a bit over the top. Like kids are going to be buying a car???
