Everybody knows its bad to text while driving, and yet people somehow totally ignore the warning. In fact, mobile use while driving is now the leading cause of death behind the wheel. In this PSA, Volkswagen shocked movie goers into seeing how bad texting while driving could be.
We love dogs, we love cars, it follows only logically that when choosing a car we should look at the comfort of our dog as well. Volkswagen’s latest advertising campaign Woofwagen tries to settle up dog breeds with the car models that should be most suitable for the dog. The accompanying video of the campaign is of course the highlight, and it has been done fantastically. An appeal to dog owners who would love to travel with their pooch, or just a little play on the loved dog and car, the campaign by London-based agency adam&eveDDB does manage to capture a fair deal of eyeballs.
Here’s an image of a dismantled Volkswagen Golf Mk2. The car was in production from 1983 to 1992, during which 6.3 million Golf Mk2s were built. Here’s a closer look at the once very popular car, neatly dismantled, with its parts available for view. As a comment on TwistedSifter mentions, the photograph is the work of Hans Hansen, and was captured in 1988.
Volkswagen Camper has quite a name for itself as a versatile vehicle, but also for all the love it received from the hippy lifestyle. Had the empire come under the influence of this thought, we would see things going a wee different way, like the AT-AT VW where the Rasta soldiers of the empire take their time off to get away from all the war and find the love. AT-AT-VW is the MOC by LEGO Design Lead Craig Callum.
Made to mark the Olympics, this Volkswagen Up has no foot pedal for acceleration. It does in stead rely on sounds of shouting, screaming and general merriment of its occupants to speed up or down. Made with the help of creative agency Achtung Netherlands, the car makes use of ‘orange-motion technology’ which basically sounds like marketing lingo for a sound powered car. A decibel recorder works with the accelerator system of the car, and along with a reconfigured engine CPU, ensures louder sounds gain more RPM from the engine.
Gentlemen, it is time to dawn your DIY hats and make your kids proud. While at it, you will also get to re-live the 70s and probably impart some in-house hippy training. In all fairness, this VW Micro-Bus bunk bed is pretty damn cool and the added playhouse makes it way more cooler. Now if you are ready with your DIY arms, head on to Instructables and take a look at the project.
Seen here, the AT-AT Volkswagen made for the empire’s hippy stormtrooper army.
Volkswagen is continuing its theme of awesome Star Wars themed ads for the superbowl again this year, and this time around, it is going to be dogs barking to sing the Imperial March. VW has released a teaser for the advertisement. Wait… what? Yep, teasers for advertisements do exist now; just like singing dogs.
Ain’t that cute? And that’s how you sell cars. Or virtually anything.
This 1965 Volkswagen Beetle is not what any car would like to mess with. In fact, supercars would steer clear of this badass monster. Named Black Current, the car has been modified to run on electricity. Built by Sam and Olly Young from Berkshire in the United Kingdom, the car pounces from zero to 60mph in a smashing 1.6 seconds. Powered by sixty 12-Volt batteries, the car can reach the top speed of 135mph.
