Little things bug me a lot. I’m up early and I see the same TV commercials every morning. Some companies consistently annoy me.

Volkswagen is one and their new “Sign and Drive” campaign has a really disturbing moment. Two guys are driving and they impulsively start talking about going to Vegas. Fair enough cliche–very manly, very on the edge–probably all discussed marketing points by the ad team.

But…

Watch the fist bump at :03.

The wrist is bent and the positioning is all wrong. You wouldn’t see this in a commercial for a Crown Vic, a Cadillac or a Lincoln.

What is that?

Freakin’ Euros.

Just me here or are you with me?

    That was pretty lame. Like they want to be able to do it, but don’t really know how. That’s sad considering its not hard to fist bump! My almost-three year old is a pro!
