Volkswagen and Deutsch would like to buy the world a coke VW.

For this spot, they got Jimmy Cliff to cover the Partridge Family's "Come on get Happy." They found all the fifteen minutes of fame internet celebrities by using search words like "freak out," and "angry," and then rounded them up and made them sing and dance in a field. With Jimmy Cliff.

At least it isn't another Star Wars video.
