Banned yet award winning television commercial from Volkswagen
Not quite sure, but the girl probably is saying Bollocks which means man’s front or behind (probably, not sure, the expression is something like “O Sh**”. The young has learned it from her father who utters this word when he accidentally puts petrol in his diesel engine. Guess, a bit hard for the ad to be banned.

Uncensored yet super funny ad (Yo Mothefucking)
Funny yet a bit chauvinist V-W commercial
The ad is in German. The story goes like this. The guy gets close to the girl and mistakenly whispers – Drehzahlmesser – which means Tachometer, means the guy has his heart lying in his V-W Sport Sedan. The girl got jealous and you know the rest.
Volswagen Classic Vintage Black & White TV ad
Those are the times. I so wish to be part of that era. Ever wish you owned a Volkswagon?

Terrorist theme: Controversial VW commercial (Small but tough)
Volkswagen Commercial – South Africa
The ad is nice, tight, puts across the message right and all that. But then, probably it is not an ideal example of politically correct ad. May be they need to get some training from Hollywood about casting. My point is why let people raise finger, why not play safe.
A fresh, fun, cool and simple ad has been created by Saatchi & Saatchi, New York, USA. The white font (sleeping) is metaphor here which is representing the teeth, and the little green font (garbage truck) is representing the distasteful stuff that gets stuck between your teeth. Crest floss will take away all your problems.

Cannes Gold Award Winning Crest Commercial: You Can Say Anything with a Smile
Evergreen Crest Commercial (1979): Look, Mom—no cavities! (Check up after check up after check up)
These first three ads are outdoor ad campaigns. A series of billboard advertisements were released to celebrate the introduction of a new Charmin along with the return of a effervescent Charmin icon, Mr. Whipple.
Ad 4. This is not a magazine or newspaper print ad. This ad was delivered to the Charmin users mailbox by the mailman. Just a dandy example of wiping-inspired direct marketing.
Ad 5. A young bear calls her dad when there is very little toilet paper left and she badly needs the toilet, however he tells his daughter that Charmin has Absorbubbles and she does not need to use as much.
Ad 8: Charmin Toilet Tissue, Charmin Comfort. The ad is showing a baby bear doing the potty dance.
Ad 9. This ad was not released commercially. Depicting (by juxtaposing) tough men in situations where they could use a little softness.
Ad 10. Time 2008, final hours of the year. People are gathering in Times Square for the traditional New Year’s ball drop. Charmin has been operating a collection of temporary bathrooms in the zone for pedestrians and tourists. These branded toilets were open to revelers in the wee hours of New Year’s between midnight and 2 a.m. Thursday.
Charmin Ultra Strong & Ultra soft commercial
A bit surprising, but this Charmin TVC did make it to the air
Vintage Charmin commercial (Mr. Whipple) – Dont squeeze the Charmin. Between 1964 and 1985, more than 500 commercials featured Dick Wilson, who told customers, “Please don’t squeeze the Charmin!.
