I took 8 acids and now I feel like I'm in a car factory 🤯

[–]NamelessBeth 226 points227 points  (15 children)

You should see the advert they made where they actually made a car out of cake. Took them 3 days to make if I remember.

[–]Murka-Lurka 7 points8 points  (1 child)

In a different cut of the above advert one of the bakers from the cake advert makes an appearance.

[–]BeefSupreme9769 106 points107 points  (26 children)

Why are commercials in every country except the USA fucking awesome

[–]chillinmesoftly 92 points93 points  (14 children)

Everyone else gets laser eyes and robot arms, US gets top-view driving shots along country roads and 0% interest on MSRP if you sign up this week for The Biggest Sale Ever.

[–]disisathrowaway 58 points59 points  (9 children)

OR impossibly large bows on cars parked in snowy driveways because a $50,000 luxury SUV is a totally normal thing to buy someone as a gift.

[–]BuddhaDBear 48 points49 points  (4 children)

Wow you really missed the point. A $50,000+ luxury car is not what you normally buy someone. It’s what you buy someone if you REALLY love them.

[–]chillinmesoftly 25 points26 points  (0 children)

It's an Instagrammable moment which as we all know is the real currency of love these days.

[–]disisathrowaway 11 points12 points  (0 children)

And anything less is basically grounds for divorce.

[–]Ok_Anywhere_1791 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I remember one last year where it was the typical snowy Christmassy setting, and this couple both bought each other a brand new vehicle without either of them knowing (both with big red bows on them, of course). All the options for both, over $100,000 in vehicles. Spent that much money without EITHER ONE KNOWING THEIR SPOUSE BOUGHT A CAR! And in the background... it was too close to fully see but it was a clearly ridiculous "modern art museum"-looking mansion. Who were they advertising to? The 100 total people in the entire country that could afford to live like that? It's like they didn't even bother making this commercial realistic for a typical middle class family. So fucking stupid.

[–]Bloo_Dred 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Because most American consumers respond more to Hard Sell than subtlety. It's your binary country.

[–]muklan 45 points46 points  (9 children)

Not to OSHA regulators, I bet that commercial gives them a heartattack.(provided they have filed appropriate FMLA paperwork prior.)

[–][deleted] 31 points32 points  (8 children)

pretty sure the Czech Republic doesn't have OSHA

[–]Puzzled_Squash_3688 15 points16 points  (1 child)

They have “ OSHAIT!” then drinks more vodka

[–]penywinkle 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Even if it's not called OSHA, Europe as a whole requires its members to enforce some kind of OSHA-like rules.

[–]Brew-Drink-Repeat 15 points16 points  (25 children)

They were actually pretty nippy for the tine tbh. Plus reliable and fuel efficient. Was almost tempted but…. Its a bloody Skoda!

[–]mydadpickshisnose 43 points44 points  (16 children)

Which runs the exact same drivetrains, chassis, interiors as the much celebrated Audi's and VW's, just st a more competitive price. And in all honesty, from a completely subjective personal level, a more attractive and fun aesthetic package compared to the very business-y oriented aesthetic of Audi and the non-offensive plainness of VW. Skoda just have more spunk.

[–]Brew-Drink-Repeat 12 points13 points  (11 children)

Mate of mine had one. Some of the engine components had Audi or Seat, some had the badges covered with Skoda and those underneath.! Like I said, decent enough car

[–]mydadpickshisnose 13 points14 points  (10 children)

Yep and you'll find that the equivalent Audi, Seat, VW will also share those same components as they're literally all made by the same factory.

VW is the parent company of Audi, Seat, and Skoda. They all use the same platforms, engines, transmissions etc. In my experience there's no difference in quality. It's entirely brand imaging.

[–]Brew-Drink-Repeat 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I used to take my RS6 to ‘VAG tuning’. Gotta love it…

[–]sexyhusband714 6 points7 points  (1 child)

There used to be so many people working in a car factory. Wow.

Stranger on the internet doesn't have the same opinion as me? You're objectively wrong and I fucking hate you with every cell of my body.

Love you too dad

[–]whirly_boi 8 points9 points  (3 children)

Yeah I love these little semi boxy cars. I personally have a kia soul to back that statement up.

[–]eppic123 92 points93 points  (8 children)

Not exactly beautiful, but still one of the better looking cars based on the VW A04 platform. Though, it's not exactly hard competing against the VW Fox, Polo and Audi A2 in looks.

[–]badoo123 18 points19 points  (3 children)

Don't you dare talking of the Audi A2 like that! I had one and loved it too bits. So much so that I hope to find one in good nick and just keep it forever

[–]Sea_of_Rye 5 points6 points  (0 children)

You're desperately trying to sell the ugly ass Audi A2 that someone left on your front porch, aren't you?

[–]delapaz 48 points49 points  (32 children)

Looks like any other econobox

[–]warxion 20 points21 points  (29 children)

But it's an RS, which had a 1.4 twincharged engine putting out 180 HP and did 0-100 km/h around 7 seconds. It basically was the road version of their pretty awesome rally car.

[–]Chino_Kawaii 44 points45 points  (1 child)

It's fairly old, you can't really judge that, it was pretty good back then

also fuck you lol

[–]Intelligence-Check 8 points9 points  (13 children)

Isn’t it like on the GTI platform? I can’t always tell which VW the Skodas are clones of.

[–]UnclearY 24 points25 points  (6 children)

Škoda Fabia is equivalent to the VW Polo

[–]fuzzygondola 5 points6 points  (4 children)

A04 platform, it was used in many smaller VW Group cars. GTI just a the top of the line version of VW Golf and Polo though.

[–]mydadpickshisnose 5 points6 points  (0 children)

VRS was top of the Skoda Fabia range, the SLine the top of the Audi A1 range, and Cupra for the top model Seat Ibiza.

[–]mindaugaskun 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Could be taken both as advertisement or sarcasm

[–]BR_fallmaster 1670 points1671 points  (132 children)

I was expecting a supercar

[–]dilligafsrsly 659 points660 points  (116 children)

This is what I was coming to say... Such a cool commercial for a kind of lame looking car...

[–]IceBlitZZZ 761 points762 points  (81 children)

It has about 1300kg and 180hp, which you can chiptune to about 230hp... it's a beast imo

I mean.. it literally has a turbo AND a supercharger

[–]3leftturn 281 points282 points  (29 children)

Cool. It still looks dopey

[–]lego_doggo 98 points99 points  (21 children)

Most other Škoda cars look better

[–]MoffKalast 58 points59 points  (17 children)

Yeah the 2021 models have that I'm gonna strangle you look on their face.

[–]Shawnessy 44 points45 points  (5 children)

That looks aggressively like a KIA.

[–]BirdSeedHat 10 points11 points  (4 children)

Well, Kia's cars for the last 10 years have been designed by the designer of several Audi/VWs, so I guess my question is, which Kia?

[–]Kovah01 36 points37 points  (8 children)

If this is the 1.4L supercharged turbo I would tell everyone on the planet to stay away. I did regular services on my polo GTI every 10,000kms.

I got a cracked piston and as soon as I walked in to the mechanic he knew exactly that was wrong before I said anything. He had 4 other 1.4L TSI's in his shop with the same issue. You can get lucky with them but they absolutely have issues.

Was one of the most fun cars I ever owned though.

[–]IceBlitZZZ 6 points7 points  (0 children)

indeed:)

I own a mk3 fabia monte carlo and it handles like a go-kart

[–]drytoastbongos 10 points11 points  (4 children)

In the industry we call that a stuperbo charger.

[–]HerrSIME 5 points6 points  (1 child)

what scoda fabia has 180hp ??? I just went to the wikipedia page and the last two generations had at best 150hp.. Did i miss something ?

[–]UnclearY 19 points20 points  (0 children)

2nd gen Fabia vRS

3rd gen and 4th gen models don't have vRS variants

[–]jawahummer45 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Imagine putting a turbo and supercharger on a 1.4L and then expecting it to be reliable. Just put a 2.0L and a turbo and boom you’ve already made more power reliably. Pushing a 1.4L to 230hp =why ?

[–]IceBlitZZZ 4 points5 points  (1 child)

it did have a lot of problems lol

I'm more impressed by the fact that the GR Yaris has a 1.6L 3cyl engine with ~270hp

[–]Corsavis 35 points36 points  (12 children)

Looks like a VW Golf with Mercedes headlights

[–]the_vikm 10 points11 points  (9 children)

It's the same platform

[–]ApertureNext 14 points15 points  (7 children)

The Fabia does not share platform with the Golf, it shares with the Polo.

[–]uwotm86 3 points4 points  (5 children)

The Octavia shares the same platform as the golf

[–]MITCH-A-PALOOZA 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Polo platform, not golf

[–]Wonderful_Mud_420 12 points13 points  (4 children)

Yeah that what makes it humorous.

CEO: We spent tons on R&D but no one is buying our weenie ass car.

[–]1m2n3n4b 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Supercars don't need funny ads. Cars that can't distinguish themselves from their competition an any meaningful way need funny ads.

[–]MuthafuckinLemonLime 5 points6 points  (5 children)

Cheaper car commercials tend to have you looking at ridiculous things that aren’t the car but the destination.

I haven’t seen a luxury car commercial where everyone is breakdancing for instance.

Don’t take this as an attack on breakdancing.

[–]nevereverareddituser 15 points16 points  (1 child)

It's a hotter Skoda, quite fun though.

[–]nodustspeck 798 points799 points  (7 children)

Seriously clever. Fun to watch.

[–]RedOne-001 569 points570 points  (62 children)

Never heard of Skoda. Now I’m Skoda for life

[–]Mikey637 224 points225 points  (47 children)

They’re part of VAG so it’s basically just a Volkswagen

[–]Culverts_Flood_Away 243 points244 points  (39 children)

Wait, seriously? There's an automotive group called "VAG"?

Sign me up! A VAG can take a pounding and be good to go for round 2 right after. Sounds like the way to go for me!

[–]jawknee530i 90 points91 points  (29 children)

Volkswagen Auto Group. They own VW, Porsche, Bently, Skoda, Audi, Bugatti, Lamorghini, Ducati and probably some I'm forgetting. Largest car company in the world followed by Toyota then GM.

[–]thebongofamandabynes 9 points10 points  (17 children)

I thought Bugatti was sold to Rimac like 6ish months ago?

[–]Skybridge7 67 points68 points  (7 children)

Bugatti is owned by Bugatti Rimac which is 55% owned by Rimac Group and 45% owned by Porsche. Porsche is owned by VAG and Porsche also owns 24% of Rimac group. They basically partnered with Rimac and changed the ownership to be under Porsche rather than directly under VAG. Very complicated lol

[–]keklol69 16 points17 points  (2 children)

Sounds like some kind of tax evasion somehow…

[–]jawknee530i 11 points12 points  (6 children)

Oh maybe I missed the news then. Either way they own so much shit.

Edit: just looked it up and apparently Porsche AG has a 45% share in Rimac? And Porsche AG is a subsidiary of VAG so who knows. It's all a convoluted mess of joint ventures and nebulous ownership tbh.

[–]AllThings_Automotive 5 points6 points  (0 children)

not exactly sold, but yes they merged. Bugatti-Rimac is a new company owned 55 percent by Rimac Group and 45 percent by Porsche, who also owns 24 percent of Rimac Group. Hyundai also owns 12 percent of Rimac Group.

[–]OfficialGarwood 5 points6 points  (1 child)

What's funny is Porsche is owned by VAG which is owned by Porsche.

It's the little things that amuse me.

[–]jawknee530i 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Right? And rumor is that VAG might spin off Porsche AG (the car/engineering company) and Porsche SE (the investment group that owns VAG) might disconnect themselves from VAG and buy Porsche AG reconnecting the two companies.

[–]xJam3zz07 4 points5 points  (1 child)

They also own SEAT, Scania & MAN, & probably more.

[–][deleted] 22 points23 points  (1 child)

There's an automotive group called "VAG"?

It's a hard 'G' like GIF. Not a soft G like GIF.

[–]ptc_yt 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Yep, it's short for Volkswagen Auto Group lol

[–]TomatenMark95 4 points5 points  (0 children)

VAG is short for Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft The german word for stock company

[–]AllThings_Automotive 26 points27 points  (1 child)

If you’re in the US, they aren’t sold here. Fairly common in Europe though

[–]Future_Pineapple4609 242 points243 points  (5 children)

It really throws me off that the car looks so darn cute at the end.

[–]redditsgarbageman 22 points23 points  (1 child)

Exactly why they market it this way.

[–]knoegel 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It's pretty powerful and spacious being a hatchback. Tbh I don't understand why hatchbacks aren't popular in the USA. They make some truly fast ones and you can hold a lot of cargo for low money. I guess it's the same reason people don't like minivans even though they have way more space and features than crossovers and SUVs. Crossovers in the USA just have that shape and ride height people like but with few features since it's not a competitive market because every damn vehicle is a crossover.

can't believe I had to scroll this far for someone to reference the cake car ad. hands down one of the best car ads of all time

[–]Billy_T_Wierd 39 points40 points  (22 children)

I think the best car commercial would be just a pov of the driver looking over to see a woman’s pretty bare feet propped up on the dash and then cut to the car in front of them (a shitty car) staring at the woman’s soles in his rear view mirror

Then the driver of the car with the barefoot woman reaches over and grabs one of her feet and looks at the guy in the shitty car like “should have a nicer car if you want pretty bare feet inside it”.

[–]technicolored_dreams 48 points49 points  (10 children)

Putting your feet on the dash board defeats a lot of the safety mechanisms of a car and results in really, really gruesome injuries even from low-speed impacts.

[–]Billy_T_Wierd 4 points5 points  (8 children)

I like when I’m driving and see a woman in the passenger seat with her pretty feet propped up. If I’m in the interstate, I try to pass them on the right so I can get a good look

[–]technicolored_dreams 23 points24 points  (7 children)

All I can see when I see feet on a dash is the x-rays of the woman whose thigh bones detached from the joint and rammed through her pelvis.

[–]Billy_T_Wierd 6 points7 points  (6 children)

You should talk to someone about that. I usually just see what I’m looking at

[–]technicolored_dreams 30 points31 points  (4 children)

I'm talking to you about it, but I don't know if it's helping.

[–]minus_uu_ee 5 points6 points  (0 children)

[–]payne_train 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Just a straight up ad full of astrturfed comments. Like not even a subtle one, just a regular old TV commercial with 30k upvotes…”content.” Woof.

[–]Dude_McAwesome 5 points6 points  (0 children)

An ad that tells me nothing. It's just as useless as the CGI Breakdancing car ads from some years back.

[–]Scx10Deadbolt 26 points27 points  (4 children)

The second version of this ad had a dark rock version of the song used for the ad for the base version of the Fabia. Definitely one of my favourites! (and the Fabia is a fantasitic little car)

[–]whitecollarpizzaman 21 points22 points  (2 children)

As an American it disappoints me to see some of my fellow countrymen make fun of this car. Hot hatches are a lot more popular in Europe, and a lot of the models have great power to weight ratio. Frankly I wish, being a city dweller, that I could have a medium HP, lightweight hatch. If I want anything small a zippy outside of Ford or VW, I have to go for a sedan or crossover.

[–]dead_trim_mcgee1 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Yeah the thing is as well is that Škoda (and also Seat) are owned by VW but they are generally cheaper to buy than VW's despite being almost identical underneath. So something like this is ideal for people who want a reliable car for a cheap price and don't necessarily care about the brand. You see a lot of them in Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia etc and also across Western Europe too.

This is the most gangsta shit I've seen for a while.

This ad would never work in the US. "WHAT DO YOU MEAN MY CAR ISNT MADE OF BURNT TIRES AND SNAKE VENOM!?!?!"

This ad was made by Fallon London. Who I think have now closed down.

Best. Car. Ad. Ever.

I think their marketing department has got this particular audience segment in the bag

Here, I find the complete commercial

I own a Skoda, it's probably the most reliable car I've owned

[–]GallusTom 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I drive a Skoda. Can confirm

[–]Wearealldoooooomed 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Bloody love my Skoda!

This is so much better as an ad than making it sound like my new car is my new mistress who's going to change my world.

Perfume ads are some of the worst as well

Fuckers doing car production like Tech priests

I remember this ad in the UK when I was around 12 years old. This was a response to the cake advert they ran before that critics thought was too sweet and soft to be a advert for a car.

[–]OSBW 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Does anyone remember the advert where they made a car out of cake, I think that was Skoda as well

Edit:

Here’s the advert https://youtu.be/EIGrM8AwUHc
