Audi of America (VW)
Audi is letting viewers choose from one of three adverts they wish to see aired at this year’s Super Bowl. Viewers can vote for their favorite online, but the one causing the most buzz, “Prom,” features a young man going on his own to prom. After his dad gives him the keys to his Audi, he is filled with courage, parks the car in the principal’s spot, walks into prom and kisses the prom queen, much to the annoyance of her date. The young man is then shown driving home, whooping in delight with a black eye. The ad closes with the tag line “Bravery. It’s what defines us.”

Volkswagen: “Get Happy”
Volkswagen’s ad features a white man, apparently from Minnesota, speaking in a Jamaican accent and acting very laidback while his colleagues are absorbed in their stressful work environment. The 2013 Super Bowl commercial has attracted a huge amount of attention, partly due to accusations of racist undertones.
