Raunchy rock, adrenaline-overdosed collegiate classics and badass electronic noise make this campaign sound as chaotically good as it looks (see p. 33).

Volkswagen, "Pods Unite"
"Follow the light and reach for the sun" is the musical message accompanying the almost unbearable lightness of this cross-promotional spot. It's hard to say how many viewings until this starts to grate, but the joyous track is a nice follow-up to the ELO-driven VW "Bubble Boy" spot, and creates many happy feelings to arc around the delicious curves of the iPod and Beetle.
