Plot / Description

In this advert for the Volkswagen Up!, we follow a very tall woman as she meets several different blind dates - all men who are quite a bit shorter than her. At the end of the ad, the woman is waiting for her next date, looking on curiously as a white VW up! pulls up to the street and parks. When the man emerges from the car, the woman is pleasantly surprised that they are matched in height, perhaps ending her quest for the perfect mate. 
 
"Volkswagen up! Advert: Tall Girl"

Voiceover

(Lyrics) It's just like looking for a needle in a haystack 
Searching for a moonbeam in the blue 
Still I've got to find you 
 
It's just like looking for a raindrop in the ocean 
Searching for a dewdrop in the dew 
Still I've got to find you 
 
I hope the place where we used to meet  
Look at each face I pass on the street 
Sometimes I hear the beat of your feet 
But it's just imagination 
 
Though it's like looking for a needle in a haystack 
Still I'll follow every little clue 
For I've got to find you
