Volkswagen Encourages U.S. Soccer Fans To Root For Brazil (Or Iceland, Belgium, Switzerland, Or Germany)

For the first time since 1986, the United States didn’t qualify for the World Cup. It was embarrassing, but there will still be Americans watching, and they’ll need a team to root for. So Volkswagen has a new World Cup-centered campaign, cleverly called “Jump On The Wagen”, where fans of different countries’ teams pitch the US for support. Brazil has the most trophies, Iceland doesn’t have enough people to do the wave, Belgium hosts the world’s biggest EDM festival, Switzerland brought us Swiss Army knives, and Germany brought the frankfurter. Compelling reasons, all. The attractive Icelandic fan is played by Sarah Skogland…anyone know who the Brazilian fan is?

    The worst commercial/advert ever. Americans don’t root for other countries to win – we root for them to lose. I want to kill everyone in those stupid videos

      Really?. you are real uptight. They are good and funny. My belief is; you don’t want anyone to talk and make fun of you, then the US National Team should have made the cut.

    • Wow you are a sad human. I am PO’ed US didnt qualify too. But that wont stop me from enjoying a bit of soccer and rooting for another favorite team. If you dont want to watch then dont. Better even close your eyes and plug your ears when these ads play out. 😉

      You have some serious anger and nationalism issues dude. Lighten up and just get lost in a good game.

    Who is the actress at the Brazilian ad?

  5. For Iceland it’s Sarah Skogland – she’s an LA based actress. I’m wondering who the actress is for the Brazilian ad as well.
