Skoda Fabia vRS commercial – Click above to watch video after the jump

Skoda is busy pushing its new Fabia vRS on the unsuspecting public across the pond with a new ad for the pint-sized hatch. Far from the cuddly machines of the competition, the Fabia vRS is apparently hewn melted-down katana swords, razor wire, snake venom and burnt rubber. Even the windshield wipers are constructed from bits of a crossbow, at least in make-believe land. The spot features manly men doing manly things to build the little five-door. Sure does make you wonder what goes into putting the 2011 Dodge Challenger 392 together.

Hit the jump to take a look at the video yourself.

      The advert was good the first 400 trillion times it was on TV here in England. English TV just doesn't get the concept of "pulse advertising".

      Show an advert a few times, then leave it alone. Saves money on running them and prevents consumer backlash when they get sick of it.

      No, here in England they show it at least once (if not twice) every single commercial break. For weeks if not months.

      Skodas suck. Even if they are basically a GTI.

      Autoblog, you forgot to mention that the advert is a ironic joke - the advert for the standard model which airs a few years ago consisted of a car made of cake. Check out the video, it's the one the guy shoots with a crossbow at the start... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WhfEGKc7PLQ

        Watching the original ad first, as alej469 suggests, brings it all together.

      There's also a Facebook app as part of the campaign. Skoda are offering free cars to the meanest and loveliest Facebook users http://www.skodafabia-vrs.co.uk/

      Chryslers are made from old disgarded snips, snails and puppydog tails...
