    Talking The VW advert thats got the Yanks all excited and embarrassed at the same time....

    I have seen this advert a few times on my recent travels around youtube. I have to say I love it, it makes me feel so happy...





    However, the Yanks are feeling a little uncomfortable with the idea that a white guy is talking with a West Indian man's accent and not his own, or why couldn't they have hired a WI guy to play the part. I guess trying to explain the humour behind the idea is beyond them as from personal experience most yanks i work with don't really have a one to speak of..
