I fail to see a connection between the dance and the payoff.

PS: In Quicktime, it doesn't show the payoff at all.

Still can't see the payoff in quicktime.
And I also can't see a direct link between the "Tango" and the payoff.

This is a great ad, i love it. Moves the VW brand on loads, brings it up to date and makes it relevant to the audience.

Seriously can't see how people aren't making the connection - IT'S SO OBVIOUS!!!!

Don't get it at all.......
Beautifully directed but not the best Glazer i've seen.
Compared to the Polo commercial "Protected" that Glazer had made before, there is no comparison... sorry.

At the end, the look&feel is good.
so: 50/50

Have you noticed than when the idea is written, you can understand an ad?

I agree with you.

Irrelevant, already half forgotten. Feels very cheap compared to the VW Dylan Thomas ad. That was a masterpiece.

This commercial is pretty damn amazing. The only criticism I have to offer is Britons and Americans would get the commercial but pretty much the rest of the world may have difficulty making the connect. Maybe that was the point. Still, it's one of the coolest ads I've seen ever....
