Kids Make a Gigantic Mess in Slow Motion in 2015 VW Passat TDI Commercial

You've probably seen what cola shooting out of bottle looks like in slow motion because of all the Mentos experiments. But have you seen a gallon of mustard dripping onto a hot dog or ice cream poured directly into somebody's mouth.

Shooting a commercial with kids is hard, but we think Volkswagen USA had an easy job with their latest Passat TDI ad. That's because all these kids had to do was to be obnoxious and make a huge mess inside a gas station.

The message being sent is very clear. If you buy a Dodge Charger or Chrysler 300, you are going to spend most of your trips cleaning up messes in gas stations. However, diesel cars are better for the parents who want to keep the youngsters under control.

The downside is that the kids will grow up as goody-two-shoes nerds. But if they spend all their time on those phones and tablets, they might invent the perfect handheld MMORPG and become millionaires before college.

SO what's all this diesel nonsense? Well, the Passat TDI is an old car that learned new tricks. With up to 44 mpg, the 2-liter diesel under the hood of this sedan will only run out of dinosaur juice after 814 miles. That means you could be spending 12 hours of quality time with your kids without stopping… if they can somehow hold it that long or learn how to do it in a bottle. Don't act like you don't know what we're talking about!

The 2015 Passat can be yours from $27,095 for the SE model that comes standard with a rear-view camera, touchscreen sound system and leatherette seating. The same Passat can also be optioned with the new 1.8-liter turbo and a 280-hp 3.6-liter V6 that gets an unimpressive 28mpg highway.
