I totally related to it when it was out, (I guess I was their target audience!)
because I was a single 20-something, mid-20's, just when I was beginning to outgrow "college type" beer partys, and would much rather go on a night-time drive with friends than go to a lame party..The commercial didnt make me want to buy a Volkswagen specifically, but it did make me want to go for a drive!
So I guess it half-worked..
and the girl at the end is just too cute..I love her..
thats just a great commercial on so many levels.."time to grow up, get a real car, get a girlfriend (the car might help with that), get a life, you are beyond childish things now..you are 25..buy this car, its perfect for you and your life." it says all that, and more..
