Max the Beetle puts the Hoff in his place

Volkswagen’s talk-show campaign, hosted by an actual VW, is a concept I’d like to see more often. Granted, we already have inanimate objects hosting talk shows (Leno), but if Craig Ferguson can get a show on late night, Max the 1964 Beetle deserves a chance, too. Hopefully a real show in this vein would have better guests than David Hasselhoff, but the house band appears to have stolen Lenny Kravitz’s old drummer, so they’re off to a decent start. This isn’€™t the kind of Hoff car commercial we were expecting, but it will have to do.
