We reported a few months ago that Volkswagen would be ending production of the iconic Beetle. This action was announced by their new ad campaign called ‘The Last Mile.’ The commercial has officially launched and it is nothing short of heartfelt. The commercial includes an animated film with the song “Let It Be” by the Beatles playing in the background. Very fitting! However, in the commercial, the song is performed by the Pro Musica Youth Chorus children’s choir.
Animated cameos of some pretty well-known people also appear in the commercial. One cameo is by Andy Warhol, who created art pieces that featured the Beetle. Also included is Kevin Bacon, whose character drove a Beetle in Footloose. At the end of the commercial, the car begins flying away and appears to change into a bug with the caption, “Where one road ends, another begins.”
