The latest print ad for the Volkswagen Touareg capitalizes on the SUV's ability to remain chic even while getting dirty. It's photographed after an off-road outing, but after taking a closer look, the mud isn't mud at all, but a branded print that looks just enough like Louis Vuitton from afar to suggest luxury. The print ad's caption, "The luxury off-road from Volkswagen," drives the point home.

The Volkswagen Touareg print ad was created by the Almap BBDO, São Paulo, Brazil ad agency with a team that included art director Danilo Boer, copywriter Tales Bahu, illustrator Adelmo, and creative directors Marcello Serpa, Dulcidio Caldeira and Luiz Sanches.
