VW's Wake Up Call

Published on .

Earlier this month, Volkswagen and Arnold Worldwide sent a DVD to Entertainment Weekly subcribers featuring a short film called The Check Up. The 8-minute short, which was directed by the Bob Industries team Dayton/Faris, stars Joe Pantoliano as an agent assigned to check up on the life progress of Kevin Connolly of HBO's Entourage. Connolly's fallen behind but the new VW Jetta passes muster since, as the tag says, "It's All Grown Up. Sort of." The complete short is now available online at newjetta.com.
