every once in a while advertising becomes art.  thus it is with the above TV ad for a VW cabrio car circa 2000 - 2001.  i asked anna what TV commercials she remembers best.  she said this one.  agreed.  for it captures that moment of youth, wistful, sad and happy.  those lazy, pregnant days and nights of summer when everything was possible.  driving without a destination.  with your friends.  the pink moon within arms reach.  the person you so desire is sitting right next to you.  nick drake on the soundtrack.  beautiful, happy and sad.  a brilliant piece of film.
