Car maker test-drives first in series of ads for diesel

Volkswagen this week took the wraps off the first of three ads for its diesel line.

The ads by  Deutsch LA tout the TDI Clean Diesel offerings by the auto maker. The first shows a man about to ask the father of his partner a big question, but the father would rather describe the benefits of his car's diesel engine.

Sitting in the director's chair is Jake Scott of Ridley Scott Associate Films. This spot and the two others to follow have parallel print and social media campaigns.
