Politically incorrect 'auditions' for VW Golf

Volkswagen Sweden posts unusual series of online videos to promote Golf model.

These are better than any cat video you may have seen.

The German Car Blog noticed this new series of videos on Volkswagen's Swedish site for the Golf that features a menagerie of characters, each introducing a different Golf model.

The "Golf Auditions" include a naked naturalist explaining the Golf's different green fuel options, a female bodybuilder mime who likes the Golf R32, and a cross-dresser showing off the Cross Golf. The site also has a spot for would-be Golf owners to create videos for selling their old car.

Don't worry if your Swedish is rusty--the videos are subtitled in English.

No word yet from Volkswagen on whether a U.S. version is in the works.
