maybe it means the fella that chases the roadrunner got himself that car, thus the roadrunner doesn't run anymore and now he's a fat bird

Quite really.

ITs just tht these cartoon characters ... Roadrunner and speedy are really fast and no one can ever catch them. N our "Hero" Volkswagen golf GTI is giving them a run at their own game. Thats the ad according to me. Good thought. N nice execution. I like it!

I'm guessing the cartoon icons are feeling depressed because they are no longer the fastest things on animation paper. It doesn't feel like an ad, I wonder what's VW's justification for okaying this ad.

argh... couldn't get it. Does it mean the car's fast enough to make quick looney tunes characters obsolete?

This ad makes no sense. 4 stars for illustration. Waste of art.

"Eso es todo amigos" means "That's all, folks" ... I think it's kinda comparison - roadrunner looks like this, next to Golf... i might be wrong, execution is really cool, but idea not very clever...

Roadrunner doesn't run on the road anymore because there is a Golf GTI around occupying the road.

Anyway this doesn't show any benefit from the car. Saved by the illustration.
