Volkswagen Take On Me Commercial

Volkswagen Take On Me Commercial
22 votes, 4.59 avg. rating (91% score)

A mock of the music video for the song “Take On Me” by A-Ha, this Volkswagen commercial depicts a racing scene, all done in drawn out, sketched scenes that include similar scenes to the Take Me On music video, but include a Volkswagen in the drawings. Basically, a man in a Volkswagen is racing a bunch or motorcycles with passenger cars in what seems to be an epic race. He wins, and a woman is there to celebrate his victory with him, and dance with each other by the car. As it turns out, this entire commercial is the day dream of a man in an office meeting, doodling on a piece of paper in front of him. In reality, he’s been singing the song out loud in front of everyone at them meeting without knowing it. He looks up from his paper, embarrassed “Was that me? Was I singing?” Everyone around him just stares at him, not sure what to think of the sudden outburst.

    Natural and Honest. 2 refreshing qualities in an ad.

    When someone sings that song, they always botch that famous high note, in the same way.

    I like this ad so much that I make my husband (yes, he is in “control” of the remote) rewind so I can see it twice every time it comes on. Interesting to see who from the sketches is actually at the table, too.

    This is one of my favorite current commercials. Well-implemented song and great acting. It was so deliciously awkward :D

    The note he sings is so jarringly perfect.
