Description

Keep track of your kids. Not your fuel gauge.  
This VW Passat TDI Clean Diesel commercial begins with three young boys running in slow motion into the convenience store of a gas station. One of the boys finds the Icee machine, and places his head under the spout, allowing the frozen red slushee to pour into his open mouth. The second boy is holding a 2-liter bottle of soda, which sprays like a fountain as he opens the top to the bottle. The third boy is standing at the nacho cheese machine. He has several hot dogs lined up on the counter, with one under the nacho cheese nozzle. The liquid cheese oozes all over the hot dog, pouring down the side of the counter top. This blonde boy looks to the cashier at the convenience store with a defiant stare, as the cashier stares back in astonishment. All three boys are then shown in the middle of the store, making a giant mess with chips and powdered candy sticks. Meanwhile, their mother is outside at the gas pump, filling the tank of the car. She looks in the car window, then calls for her missing boys. As the mother of the rowdy boys fills her tank, another mother of three boys drives by in a dark blue Volkswagen Passat TDI Clean Diesel. Her boys are riding quietly in the car, playing with a tablet, reading a comic book, being all-around well-behaved young boys.

(Lyrics) Mammas don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys 
Don't let 'em pick guitars or drive them old trucks 
Let 'em be doctors and lawyers and such 
Mamas don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys 
'Cause they'll never stay home and they're always alone 
 
Mammas don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys 
Don't let 'em pick guitars or drive them old trucks 
Let 'em be doctors and lawyers and such
