It may come as a shock, but carmakers don’t just make commercials for the Super Bowl. No, seriously. Today’s installment of Video(s) of the Day are proof of that, as Volkswagen has released two new ads showcasing the Jetta TDI and all-new Beetle convertible. Honda has also joined in on the commercial debuts, aiming its most recent ad at President’s Day, which is this Monday, February 18.
In Volkswagen’s first commercial, a man wearing a ski mask enters a convenience store and casually shops as innocent bystanders look on. After collecting some snacks, the masked man approaches the cashier, who cautiously tells him he’s not looking for trouble. Puzzled, the masked man responds that he doesn’t want any trouble, pays for the snacks, and calmly walks out of the store. We’re not going to ruin the entire commercial, so check it out below and see why the man decided it was a good idea to walk into a convenience store with a ski mask on.
The second Volkswagen commercial showcases the Jetta TDI and its ability to go more than 600 miles between fill ups. This distance is both good and bad, as it allows you to travel for a long period of time during a road trip, but it also traps you with your passengers. As this guy in the commercial finds out, it can be a long ride if your passengers have annoying habits. Maybe it’s fuel economy isn’t as great as it’s cracked up to be.
The final commercial in today’s Video(s) of the Day include Honda’s President’s Day ad, in which Honest Abe Lincoln and George Washington attempt to slow jam about Hondas. Key word there being attempt. Besides getting some of our most recognizable presidents to sing, Honda is offering a $0 down payment, a $0 security deposit, $0 due at lease signing, and $0 for the first month’s payment.
