Volkswagen pulled a winner at the 2014 Super Bowl. The German automaker's ad, "Wings," jumped to the top spot of the best auto brand viral videos of 2014. The campaign, created by Argonaut, pokes fun at VW's tag line "The power of German engineering," by mixing in the classic holiday movie "It's a Wonderful Life."
In it, a father tells his daughter that whenever a Volkswagen hits 100,000 miles, a German engineer gets a pair of wings. A sequence follows of stuffy, precise German engineers dealing with the decidedly awkward experience of sprouting wings spontaneously. We won't even tell you what happens when a Volkswagen hits 200,000 miles -- click below to find out.
