Plot / Description

This commercial for the all-new Volkswagon Beetle begins with a line of cars waiting at a stop light. At the front of the line is a black VW Beetle, next to a man on a motorcycle. The man on the motorcycle stretches out his hand while the driver of the Beetle reaches out to fist bump the motorcycle man. The black Beetle is parked at a curb while two men carrying a couch down the sidewalk give the man in the Beetle high-fives. The Beetle is parked again while a police man on a horse goes by, also giving a high-five. An image of a crosswalk sign with the orange/red "Do Not Walk" sign appears. The Beetle is in a parking garage with a driver heading the opposite direction - they both stop for a quick fist bump. The Beetle is parked next to a woman who is loading the back of her car with groceries as her little girl stands at the Beetle window for a high-five, before pulling her hand away in the "you're too slow" part of "give me five". The man driving the Beetle gets a palm slap from a little black and white dog. The man in the Beetle is driving, smiling when a look of concern appears on his face as he sees a group of cyclists heading toward him - preparing for a lot of high-fives, hand slaps.
