I don’t think I am a very emotional person. Ok, maybe I am but I have NEVER cried during an advert before. That was until last night.
Did anybody see the new VW Golf advert with Lucky the Cheetah? I was in tears – during an advert!!! I had to rewind it and show my husband and it had me in tears again! An advert for goodness sake!!!! That is just pathetic.
Just as well that I drive a Golf, even if a very old one, because otherwise I would have to go and buy one.
I could not find a copy of the advert to post. But it is very sweet. The cheetah has lost his leg due to a trap and the catch phrase is “Just because Lucky can not run does not mean she is not a cheetah” and there is a picture of her hanging her head out the car window with the wind blowing on her face. Ahhhhh!
EDIT: Ok, I found the video. Here it is – enjoy. The new VW Golf 6 advert
Edited again to add: Here is a link for more information about Lucky, the lodge and how to get involved. (thanks Mandi)
