Volkswagen Italy scoffed at unfortunate Instagram handle

It gives a whole new meaning to the expression “garbage in the trunk”.

Volkswagen’s Italian branch – which is part of Volkswagen Italia – was mocked by social media users after the dealership launched its Instagram handle “@volkswagenitalia”.

A now-viral tweet suggested that the name could end up as “Volkswa genitals,” making the brand the subject of several jokes online and leading to it going viral.

“Volkswagen Italy, please never change your Instagram name,” read a tweet that was liked over 240,000 times.

“I just walked and followed this golden thaang.” tweeted another fan.

“Sorry, sorry”, a third responded.

While the official Instagram page has mostly posted content about Italian soccer player Francesco Totti, many comments continue to poke fun at VW’s name, with several people saying they followed just because of the name.

As of Tuesday, the handle has remained the same.

The Post has reached out to Volkswagen for comment.

Since launch, the brand has been the subject of several jokes online stating that name was mentioned "Volkswagen genitals" causing the account to go viral.

However, one person wasn’t pleased and slammed the tweet, noting that the “genitalia” resemblance was “immature.”

“Because some of you are 12, some social media manager in Milan or Naples had to get up in the middle of the night to work.” slammed a user.

The unfortunate grab also brought back a number of awkward spellings, like the hashtag “#susanalbumparty,” which went viral in 2012 when then-icon Susan Boyle released her first album.
