    Default "It Begins"

    Okay, has anyone seen the Volkswagon Presents, "It Begins" video on the MLS page?

    http://web.mlsnet.com/vw/rtc.jsp#/it_begins/

    I really don't know what to say, I mean, I'm speechless...

    And it's only "Episode 1."

    Good job MLS - video's like this will ensure that soccer fans will remain in bars watching the EPL on Saturday's instead of going to your stadiums.

    And people wonder why only 5000 people showed up for the playoffs in NE

    WTF.
    1) it's not the chick from madTV, but she should sue them for ripping off her character.
    2) soccer mom's....seriously??? that's who garber is still targetting? hasn't he seen the success of TFC? and the marketing of the new teams, focusing more on getting young urban fans out...

    what a big step backward.

    Pretty sure it is. Mo Collins I believe.

    I don't feel one way or another about this commercial. After all...it IS a commercial, and by one of the sponsors.

    What do we want? BMO does a commercial trying to honour the fans, we complain. VW does one appealing to the soccer moms, we complain.

    I think we'd all prefer if MLS does no marketing whatsoever...LOL!

    Um... ohhh kaay.

    What's wrong with these ppl .. I mean seriously.

    They do one good thing by re-designing the MLS Cup ... and undo all that by having a completely ridiculous line of commercials.

    These ads are supposed to get ppl pumped about soccer so that they'll want to take in a post-season game.

    That was just utterly ridiculous. I hope the MLS blogging community rips the league a new arsehole for this latest f up.

    There are plenty of ways MLS and VW could have reached those ends that didn't involve making a spot for the worst commercial ever made award.

    Well, the good news is, the marketing department in the MLS makes the Refereeing look competent by comparison.

    I think you need a rousing chorus of "Deb's a whore" at the next game, assuming this silliness hasn't been shelved by then.
