Sometimes advertising doesn't suck--it's merely the marketing.

These ads for the VW Routan are kind of cute. A "mockumentary" where Brooke warns not to have babies just to get "German engineering." Except, as revealed in this Sunday's New York Times, the Routan isn't actually a Volkswagon product. It's a rebadged Chrysler! Holy crap!

Read it here.

How pissed would you be if you paid top dollar for a Routan, only to discover you had been hoodwinked into buying a freakin' Chrysler? Not since Honda slapped their logo on a crappy Isuzu and called it a Passport has the public been so shamelessly hoodwinked.

Marketers suck.
