China introduces the special edition VW GTI "PP"


(click ads) "It will go fast" is the translation on the copy line for these Volkswagen GTI ads by BIG advertising (that's the agency's name) in Beijing, China. Lost in translation, apparently, is how showing people who've pissed their pants will make someone want to buy the car. Are they using "go" as a double entendre (is it one in Chinese?)? Or are they saying that the speed of the GTI will make you pee yourself? If that's the case, shouldn't we instead be looking at individuals who've shit themselves (images via)? Previously in: PissVertising. Previous VW ads: good (1, 2, 3) bad (1, 2, 3).

no chinese double entendre here. I think they just try to say fast speed. G速 means extreme speed

I don't think VW would ever have approved this.

More scam ads?
