    VW's new "Safe Happens" ads

    VW has released some new controversial ads where they show their cars being involved in accidents.

    I'm not so sure these are a good thing -- in both ads, one of the contributing factors is that the driver is distracted by talking with their passengers, and not able to react in time. It's not just cell phones which can distract you.

    So the bottom line is - you can be a dumb dweeb and still survive. Hmn - I'm not sure most viewers will empathize with that.
