The Best Commercial Currently on TV

This one, for the Volkswagen Jetta, in which a white guy is introduced to this Asian girlfriend's parents, when the girl's father suggests that he go for a hike. He misunderstands, and says "YOU take a hike! Not all Jetta owners enjoy hiking, CRAIG!"

A hilarious riff on matter-of-fact racial stereotypes, shifting the burden directly to the audience by commercial's end. And all brought to you by a company with a creepy Nazi pedigree.
