Diary: Turkey of the week - DDB Milan/Volkswagen Passat

Larissa Vince is sorely disappointed by the latest spot for the Volkswagen Passat from DDB Milan:

"If this was for any other car brand, it might not deserve a turkey, but with VW, I've come to expect something with a bit more subtlety and originality (or a singing animal). Italians may find a smug man being squirted in the face with a hose amusing, but given that this ad is running in the UK, it needed fewer slapstick jokes and boring 'car drives down road' shots, and more crooning canines."
