Where's Orville when you really need him? – Click above to watch the video after the break

When life gives you lemons... make lemonade. So goes the ol' saying, at least. But what if the curveball life happens to be throwing your way (and the rest of your small Brazilian town) is an active volcano? Well then, make popcorn.

And we can think of no better vehicle with which to climb the fire-spewing peak than a Volkswagen Saveiro, which is sadly one of VW's made-in-Brazil, non-U.S.-market offerings. The little trucklet features a flex-fuel 1.6-liter engine underhood that offers up 101 horsepower on gasoline or 104 when drunk on ethanol.

Check out the video after the break, and visit veryfunnyads.com for more gut busters. Now, we're off to find a gigantic salt shaker and plenty of artery-clogging buttery goodness.

      That was inefficient. They could have used 1/4th as many F150's. Fewer if they'd hooked up trailers.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Yeah, and how would they have managed to fit F-150s with trailers through those small cobblestone streets?

        ...Or find enough gas to power them for more than a few miles?

        lol nrb

        No, what's inefficient is an F150 the size of a small house that never gets used to it's full ability, but being that it's the only* real pickup still sold by Ford, people are almost forced to buy something that huge.

      Sorry but that wasn't even mildly amusing.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Haha creative.

      this scenario is not in Brazil. here we have volcanoes. this village should be located in the Andes, or anywhere else in Latin America.

        ah, na verdade, quis dizer que não temos vulcões. lol

      Those chicken are going to choke. Animal Cruelty!

      Lame ad.

      Not really funny, but VW should definitely consider bringing that mini pickup to the US. I think not only would it be a hit, but it would leave the US car makers scrambling to copy it.

      It's a nice ad, and, believe me, you don't really want a Saveiro. Not for the price it's sold here and certainly not for the quality, or lack of it.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Do you really consider airbags as luxury? Anyway, the mechanical quality is what bothers me most.
        • 4 Years Ago
        The Savero is actualy a realy good car, compared to it´s competitors. Indeed they wouldn´t realy want one, but for other reasons...Price, finishing...and the lack of some luxuries our yankee brothers are too used to, like airbags, confortable (extra-large) seats, big engines, GPSs and then some...

      Imaginative and fun ad, but the VWs in question don't seem to be shown enough to convince me that that's what the ad is really about.
