Controversial VW Ad Goes Viral After Super Bowl Debut

Controversial VW Ad that aired during the Super Bowl became viral after a number of renowned personalities criticized it for being racist.


Titled “Get in Get Happy,” the Volkswagen TV spot features a white guy going around his office and talking with a Jamaican accent, and ultimately getting his co-workers to do the same once they ride in a Volkswagen with him.

America’s Got Talent judge Piers Morgan tweeted right after the ad was aired:

That VW ad makes me a) happy and b) want to go to Jamaica immediately. What it doesn’t do is make me want to buy a VW. #Superbowl

The ad has already accumulated over 8.5 million hits on YouTube in less than a day.

Watch the VW TV spot below. Do you think it’s racist?
