Skoda Fabia cake engineThis is the ultimate car guy birthday cake. This advert for the Skoda Fabia is designed to hit you in the warm, gooey center. Right away, you're drawn in by dulcet tones from The Sound Of Music that trigger flashbacks to a Generation Y childhood and endless preschool sing-a-longs. Furthering the irresistible pull of the commercial is the fact that they're making cake. Anyone who can turn away from watching bakers at work is just dead inside. It's so much like what we gearheads do - look in the book, follow the instructions using your skills to ensure a proper result. Maybe it's just us wrench-turners who know our way around a kitchen, and are also suckers for confections. Whatever it is, even if it turns out to be subliminal flash frames (doesn't work, btw), the Skoda is so sweet, we want to take one home. Which is the point. Except, we still want it for dessert.

Thanks for the tip, Mr. Pink!

      This is the best car...errr cake... Skoda has has ever made! But I bet it taste like crap just because it's Skoda, and if it doesn't, at least Skoda can bake cakes.

        get the facts first, little clowno
        although I don't like the way new Fabia looks the previous generation of Fabia and Octavia too were on pair with Toyota in JDPower rankings

      Yummy. I wonder if its all really from cake on the inside or weather they cheated with some infrastructure to make it not wobble.

      Wonder if they got the idea from the Satan's Party episode of South Park...

      It was completely made of cake, icing, marzipan and other sweet things.

      Did you just woke up from a comma? Skodas have been the complete oposite of crap for the last several years, and only getting better.
