Was funny seeing the comercials yesterday while watching Bad Boys II. The "German" in the comercials is the same guy playing the "Russian" in Bad Boys II

At least I am pretty sure it is him.

Lol these are pretty good, I like the new Fedex ads better though. The guy in white is a good actor, he plays some creepy roles, he was Lucifer in Constantine

I love those commercials... Probably my second favorite funny campaign in the last couple of years since the "Real Men of Genius" spots first came out.

"Shay vat if you vant to pimp your ride..." Awesome.

Edit: Oh yeah, and the one with "THE LAME" is making me snicker even though I haven't seen it in a few days... perfect.

Yeah... it's him. Click on "other works"

(2006) TV commercials for Volkswagen's Golf GTI (Un-Pimp Your Ride)



I prefer him as Karl Hungus in Log Jammin'.
I think these comercials are a waste of his talent.
- Satan in Constantine
- the weird surgeon in Minority Report
- the guy stuffing Steve Buscemi in the wood chipper in Fargo

Target audience? Anyone that has been sitting at a light with ghetto pimped ride blasting out rap at 500Hz or lower. The target audience would LOVE to "un-pimp" some rides out there. So maybe buying a VW will piss off the pimp ride owners? Why not? Better a chance of that than a hot babe clawing you because you wear "AXE"

Excellent commercial.

Love the new commercials. Hopefully when they bring the new Golf TDI to the States, they can do a similar commercial with other less efficient vehicles. Probably won't be as funny though, this Unpimping thing is gonna be hard to beat!

He's the same actor who played the head villain in The Big Lebowski.

broader than teens, anyone who likes a small, efficient car that actually has some class and quality and who never wants to be lumped in w/ the flying saucer/fartcan import tuner crowd


of course, I'm biased, I own a VW and it's awesome, 31mpg and ~220hp....not a world beater but very quick and rock solid in the corners

I remember talking to some friends about their luxury V8 powered sedan, Phaeton, which starts at $66,000. I guess eventually all makers of inexpensive cars get ambitious and want to compete with the big boys. In the case of VW, if Phaeton cost $70,000 out the door, wouldn't it cease to be a "Volks" wagon, since it now not something everyday "volks" can buy?

Germans dressed in white, selling a white car, and unpimping a white kid's car?

I would say the target audience is white kids.

for the most part it's white kids and asian kids pimping cars to begin with....

but it's not targeted to the white kids that pimp cars, because they'd never consider a non-pimped car acceptable for various reasons.
