Volkswagen Commercial for Volkswagen Routan (2010)
- - Get the Television Series: Dora the Explorer
- - Get the App: Volkswagen Routan
Plot / Description
"VW Routan Hide and Seek with Dora"
The commercial begins with an exterior shot of the Volkswagen Routan (VW minivan) which is shaking. The windshield wipers start going, and then we see what is causing all the commotion - it's Dora the Explorer and her friend Boots the Monkey. Boots is hiding in the front panel / glove compartment, and then in one of the floor compartments. Dora climbs over the back seat into the very back of the mini-van, and Boots is already in the floor storage back there. We see that there are (real) children near a tree counting - obviously playing hide-n-seek with the cartoon characters. The parents come up right when the children are done counting and open the door with the remote entry. The children "find" Dora on the DVD player, and the dad discovers that he is sitting on a Dora-themed bag.
