Pause at 0:53 at the exact moment of the crash if you need the message to hit you over the head. Amazingly well done spoof, looks just like a real commercial.
Love how the kid has the shape of a swastika after being run over.

I wish German car makers actually had the balls to do a spot like this. Sadly, they all pretty much profited from that era and now have to pretend nothing happened 70-80 years ago.

#4 BMW used to be an airplane manufacturer prior to the war. In 1955 it was close to closing its gates due to horrible sales.

Audi was a fusion of four near bankrupt car manufacturers.

VW's biggest success was the Beetle (21 Million sold) and was first produced in 1947.

Could you explain to me how German car makers profited from that era. German car industry was almost destroyed back then and it took it decades to come back to its feet.

Well if the system is that smart then you can always point and blame the car ^^

#7 Of course they all got in trouble towards the end of the war and had to recover slowly in a global market economy. That's what war does. It eventually drains resources, unless you are the winning party. The point is, at the time, pretty much all German car makers were part of the military industrial complex of the 3rd Reich, and in some cases even exploited slave labor, i.e. people who were bussed in from concentration camps, or eventually going there. I guess you would be surprised, how much evidence was destroyed after the war - I am not. It's the economic version of telling (yourself) pretty little lies, so you can't be held responsible (justly or unjustly) for obvious wrongdoing in the past. Companies do it, individuals do it. It is wishful thinking though, just like your VW Beetle production facts.

Since you already mentioned BMW as an example:

"The dynasty behind the BMW luxury car marker has admitted, after decades of silence, using slave labour, taking over Jewish firms and doing business with the highest echelons of the Nazi party during World War Two."

I highly doubt they were the only ones. Why? Even in my family (very left leaning and anti-authoritarian), the records and stories of that time have holes and room for interpretation - despite being from Northern Germany, where people were much more liberal and more likely to oppose Hitler and the war. That doesn't mean nobody looked the other way when these things were happening in the background.
All I'm saying is, the line between guilty/complicit and innocent is often conveniently placed exactly where it needs to be in order to avoid dealing with history.

And now, let's return to watching cat videos, as the internet requires us to do.

#7 an example how VW logo was created! ;)

..prety much all now known german car manufacters had profits during WW2.
- Audi (auto union) have swastika on his silver bullets,
- Maybach made tank engines, so did Skoda
- Porshe as a designer made nazi famous tank Tiger and SPG Ferdinand (named after him, nazi party founded him and order a design for VW Beetle
- BMW made famous ww2 german 3wheel motorbikes with carriage, cars for gestapo and airplane engines for nazi best fighter Focke-Wulf Fw 190.
- Mercedes made cars, planes and even ships during WW2. thats why their logo have 3 points (up = air, left and right = land and see)
