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\u00a0the Pro Musica Youth Chorus children\u2019s choir.\r\n\r\nAnimated 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, \u201cWhere one road ends, another begins.\u201d\r\nThis Volkswagen Beetle commercial is a nod to its 70 years of life\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nAs Volkswagen discontinues the production of such an iconic car, they announced that they will be unleashing a new, electric vehicle. The final Beetle car was unleashed to the public in July 2019 in Mexico. That assembly line will now produce the Tarek SUV. As a nod to moving towards the future, Volkswagen decided to sell off its last few Beetles on Amazon.\r\n\r\nRELATED: Original Volkswagen Beetle Repurposed Into Old-Fashioned Mini Bike\r\n\r\nJohannes Leonardo Chief Creative Officer Leo Premutico talks about the end of the Beetle and the commercial. \u201cThis animated film pays homage to the imprint this car has made as we make way for an exciting future of electric mobility for the masses,\u201d she says. \u201cWhen creating the campaign, it was very intentional that we didn\u2019t put any one person or moment on a pedestal. The Volkswagen Beetle was the great equalizer for society and culture at large. This isn\u2019t one person\u2019s goodbye or a company\u2019s, it\u2019s everyone\u2019s goodbye.\u201d\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nAs we say "goodbye" to this legendary vehicle, at least we still have this heartfelt commercial to remember it by. Take a look at the short, animated commercial below!
