There is a recent trend in the viral world, where commercials pop up on the web that are so shocking, that they cause an enormous amount of buzz. However, when people start bringing attention to these "offensive" commercials that are claimed to be in poor taste, the companies featured in the commercial play dumb.
Both Ford and Volkswagen have somehow created commercials that they never meant you to see. One features a decapitated cat and the other a suicide bomber. They have absolutely no clue how they got on the Internet. They want it both ways - the attention but not the blame.
Both companies claim that the commercials were just concepts and that when they saw them they were outraged and never intended the public to see them. While it?s possible that the ad agencies who created these spots leaked them on the Web, it just seems a little fishy how much "accidental" attention both VW and Ford have received.
