VW - Routon Boom / insensitive commercial

1 United States Review updated:

I am completely appaled by the 'Routon Boom' commercials. These commercials are pasted all over the television networks and appear to be played more than the political commercials. Their lack of sensitivity to the people that cannot have children is unexcusable. The pain associated with not being able to have a natural child is undescribable. Then they play these stupid commercials that portray that people are having children just to get a minivan. This commercial needs to be pulled off the air!!!

    If this bothers you, then you surely should not have children. Imagine the pain you would feel if your child were one who became addicted to pot, heroine, meth or ???? And you had to watch the plethora of films, movies, let alone commercials, portraying it!

    These commercials are a hoot, because they have absolutely NO sensibility whatever in them. The only thing better would be to do a Lucy spoof with them. I love that someone like Brooke is able to be so totally ridiculous, with a straight face. We should all learn to make light of more things...not more serious!

    Never have children. I don't and never have, but come on this is the worst comercial in history and I would have thought Brooke Shields had more class. I mute them every time they come on so don't tell me don't watch if you don't like it. I don't watch, but if I was a pregnant woman I'd be soooo offended. It will be a clod cold cold day in the hottests part of hell before I ever consider buying any sort of VW product. BUY AMERICAN or you won't have any American LEFT.

    Sorry that you cant have babies but thats apart of your life just because you cant doesnt mean that anybody else is going to have babies and the majority reason for a van is because you have children because it is easier to get them in and out. This commercial isnt any different than the dodge caravan they had the whole family driving to the game and when they got there they were showing how they whole family can use the different features. Even the dog. The whole point to the commercial is to get the german engineering van for that reason not any others. So you really need to ask yourself WHY am I really making a big deal about this? Oh and VW is the ###.

    This commercial is insensitive. It reminds me of the horrible experiments people were subjected to during world war II in the concentration camps. What are they thinking? My girlfriend was in a Auschwitz and suffered being repeatedly raped for "german engineering" Get this off the air- surely you could come up with something better than that.

    Holy ### some of you people are nuts!

    Seriously, just because some of you can't have children, you are offended because other people CAN? Brooke Shields is JOKING about people 'just having babies to get the new Routan'. If you can't tell that, you are obviously poorly educated. The van is for families, families with kids and babies, so that is what they are advertising for. The childless are NOT their market. If you don't have a kid, get a damn sports car and enjoy it.

    The commercials are funny and satirical, it's not serious! For crying out loud, it's people like you that give Americans a bad name.

    I love the VW commercial where the suicide bomber gets into a VW and pulls up to a crowd of people and blows himself up, but the car is undamaged. And the slogan is "Ya we build them that tough" Look it up on Youtube. Type in VW suicide bomber.

    You know what Rodney Dangerfield said, "You know what the best part of having kids is? Making them!"

    In reference to the whiner about the Routon commercial...Yawn
