Closure proves VW spoof was win-win

So the creators of that hilarious, fake VW ad with the suicide bomber have apologized for making and distributing the thing, and VW has decided not to pursue them with legal action. Interesting.

In the end, everybody wins. The guys who made it got their work into circulation, so that people could see their creativity. VW gets incredible free publicity for the car used in the ad. They also get to appear distressed by not only the content but the mere suggestion that somebody would make an ad that they didn’t approve. The “offended” get to say their complaints mattered. And we get the free entertainment.

Beautiful, eh?
