I miss when they use to make commercials that told a story. Nowadays, it's all about the angle of the product.

One of my favorite commercials is the Volkswagon commercial for their Cabrio car. It originally aired in the year 2000 (cue Conan), and has always stuck with me. The simplicity of 4 friends riding in a convertible, enjoying the evening together, makes me wish I could take a trip like that. Volkswagon, back in the late 1990s, had another great commercial with Styx and "Mr Roboto" (8 speaker casette stereo system!). 'Pink Moon', however, will always make me long for a simpler time.


  1. I love this video! And what's awesome about the Mr. Roboto commercial is that it features a very young Tony Hale (Buster Bluth!). I definitely yearn for cool Volkswagen commercials to come back.

  2. My favorite VW ad was the fake one with the suicide bomber being thwarted by the sturdiness of his car.
