Monday Funday: Amazon, Seat and classic BBC proto-trolling

Monday Funday is our weekly post where we round up the funniest (and sometimes unfunniest) bits of brand humour and collect them all up in one place – so you don’t have to spend your entire workday scrolling through YouTube and BuzzFeed. Get ready to have your ribs tickled.

Please remain SEAT-ed

Here we see car brand SEAT having a little bit of fun with a couple of its customers by giving them a unique opportunity to test ride the brand’s new Cupra model in a lifelike simulator. A very lifelike simulator.

From the ha-ha-harchives
