Battle of VW ads: 'The Force' vs. 'Milky Way'


The runaway success of Volkswagen's "The Force" spot from last night's Super Bowl got us thinking about the last truly phenomenal TV commercial from VW—the famed "Milky Way" spot from 1999, featuring Nick Drake's "Pink Moon." Comparisons may be odious, but we have to ask—which do you think is better? (They're completely different, I know, but just go with it.) Has Deutsch crafted something for the Passat that finally matches, or surpasses, what Arnold did for the Cabrio? See both spots (the 60-second versions) and vote below.
