Video: Volkswagen’s Superbowl commercial interviews supposed ’Punch Buggy’ inventor
Over the past years, the Superbowl has become one of the most watched television spectacles here in the US. And while a lot of us tune in to watch the game itself, the Superbowl is equally-famous for having some of the most expensive – and funniest - commercial spots in all of television.
How expensive, you ask? Well, this year, one 30-second spot that is aired during the game costs around $1.8 to $2 million. With just about every television set from Miami to Seattle – and all points in between - tuning in to some capacity, it’s no secret why companies have shelled out millions of dollars just to have a commercial air during the Superbowl.
This year, Volkswagen will be one of those companies when it debuts a new – and uproariously hilarious - commercial during the Superbowl. The commercial itself doesn’t promote a specific car for Volkswagen, but rather, it chronicles the history of one of the world’s most beloved ‘car games’, the Punch Buggy, complete with a faux pas interview with the game’s supposed inventor, ‘Sluggy’.
If you can’t wait for the Superbowl to see the ad, we won’t blame you. Check it out here and have a nice, hearty laugh afterwards.
