VW's Speedy Gonzalez commercials

Volkswagen has gotten a lot of flack within the Hispanic community for using Warner Bros. Speedy Gonzalez cartoon character as a mascot for its new Golf GTI hot hatch.

The first commercial features the famous sombrero-laden rodent dropping his pantalones in front of the camera. Is it offensive? You be the judge.
