The Volkswagen Tiguan Meteor Commercial

In a case of bad timing, this Volkswagen Tiguan spot debuted on January 13, the same day that a false missile alert shook Hawaii. Although a meteor is an external event coming from outer space, while missiles/nuclear warfare aren’t, the sense of panic considering current events probably explains some of the negative feedback this ad has been getting. I don’t really have a problem with it…the question of “what would you take in an emergency?” is one that comes up on occasion, and this commercial does a somewhat amusing job of demonstrating just how much can fit in a Volkswagen Tiguan. Regardless, I bet the meteor kills them. Allegra Masters is the wife…anyone know who plays the husband?
