VW Tiguan Commercial Ridin’ Dirty

VW Tiguan Commercial Ridin’ Dirty

There isn’t much a parent wouldn’t do to ensure their child is in the safest scenario possible. So much so that if it’s something that they can control, they’ll find a way to control it.

This commercial from Volkswagen is a testament to that, as a mother opts to take her daughter’s boyfriend’s riced out Honda Del Sol out to pick up groceries rather than letting her daughter go out in it. Instead, the kids get to safely drive around town in her mom’s Tiguan, one of the nine Volkswagen IIHS Top Safety Picks.

The ad is worth a good laugh, especially since it reminds us of just how ridiculous Hondas were customized back in the mid to late 90s. This Del Sol simply screams out Fast and the Furious. We can’t believe that style of body kits and graphics were once the cool thing to do.

Watch the commercial after the break.

    Does Volkswagen realize that “ridin dirty” means transporting enough drugs for a felony charge. Google “ridin dirty lyrics” and you’ll see how ironic this song is in a commercial about protecting children.

    Honestly, that’s why I didn’t understand the commercial; so I googled the commercial. They must have not known the meaning of “ridin dirty”.

    DUH, that’s what they were TRYING for!  The funny combination of the song, the car, she can’t put the groceries in the trunk because it is full of speakers, everything is the opposite of the safe mom car.  Irony is someone posting about irony completely missing the intentional irony the ad successfully pulled off.

  • I agree – Mom is making her daughter ride in a safe car, but she still lets her run around with a thug wanna-be who listens to music glamorizing the drug dealer lifestyle.
