There's been a bit of buzz about a real-looking Volkswagon advertisement which has been circulating the net.

Short story is the ad portrays an Islamic homicide bomber's attempt to murder people at a restaurant and the attempt backfires on him due to the toughness of VW Polos.

There's been some debate over the ad's taste. I found the premise to be in pretty poor taste, but ended up chuckling when I saw the video. Now I see it as another dumbass terrorist hoisting his own petard due to his ineptitude.

Is the ad real, or isn't it?

See the ad and the story behind it here at Whizbang.
