In both commercials and print ads, the VW Touareg is shown towing a massive Airstream trailer with ease, tagline "Touareg, the Volkwagen that does what other Volkswagens don't."
Except it can't do it. CBSNewYork reports.
"We did make a mistake." Volkwagen's embarrassed Press Relations Manager spoke with us via satellite from Detroit. Tony Fouladpour admitted the tongue weight of the trailer in the ad is too heavy for the Touareg, a fact VW's marketing department failed to check, said Fouladpour: "They got a little too excited, they took too much artistic license."
