  2. Ah Volkswagen, the automaker that lives in the past and refuses to build an EV.

  8. When the video first came out and gained popularity it was immediately copied for a Supra commercial, so this is nothing new.

  9. Loved the original video and I was in LOVE with Morten Harket! He still looks great.

  10. Unless you're in the Buggatti Veyron outrunning a motorcycle in a VW is fantasy.

  11. Love the original song. Maybe people who buy the car can listen to this while they are waiting in the repair line at the VW dealership.

  12. Even the original video was an homage to the movie "Altered States"
