Volkswagen Like a Golf

Volkswagen’s “Like a Golf” has won a Gold award in cars category at the British Television Advertising Awards. The television commercial, launched in August 2009, was designed to position the Volkswagen Golf as the top of the hatchback car class. From a witness to a road traffic incident to a woman renting a hire car, the public are seen using the word ‘Golf’ as a descriptor for a hatchback car that isn’t actually a Golf.
