It looks like this week is the week for stumbling across really great Volkswagen Commercials.
VW Commercial (South Africa): Golf 6 – Silent Band
It started off with one that I spotted in my Facebook stream for the new VW Golf 6. A very clever piece of work by the Ogilvy Advertising crew.
Volkswagen Super Bowl XLV Commercials
Volkswagen of America Sheleld out some major moolah to air two 30-second spots – one for the all-new North American Passat model and one for the 2012 Beetle – which ran during the second and fourth quarters of the game.
Thanks to WorldCarFans for sharing the following two ads on their YouTube channel.
Volkswagen Super Bowl XLV Commercial: VW Passat – The Force
This was the second one I came across on Facebook as well and is very cute and is one of two new ads aired during Super Bowl XLV.
The Passat commercial features a Star Wars theme and was produced with the help of Lucasfilm Ltd., George Lucas’ production company. The visuals are accompanied by the well-known "Imperial March" music by film composer John Williams. The ad shows a child dressed as Darth Vader summoning the "Force" upon discovering a Passat in the driveway.
Volkswagen Super Bowl XLV Commercial: 2012 VW Beetle
The other spot for the all-new 2012 VW Beetle features a CGI-generated black beetle who reigns supreme in the forest. The soundtrack includes a new rendition of the famed rock song "Black Betty" by Jon Spencer and the Blues Explosion.
The two Super Bowl ads are the work of Volkswagen of America’s agency Deutsch L.A. Inc.
After seeing these three I decided to dig up a few more classics that I felt werew worth sharing.
