incredible beetle crash commercial!
http://www.painteddesigns.nl This spectacular footage can hardly be considered a commercial. It is more a vw documentary telling us how much punishment a beetle can take. These days it's just unbearable to see a priceless split window beetle being tested in this way! From the DVD 'Legend on wheels'. Wanna have this DVD packed with 2 hours of high quality digitally remastered old vw commercials? The DVD really brings you back to the '60s and '70s. Send an email to: email@example.com
how long does a vw beetle float? Just watch!
Wanna have the DVD? Visit http://www.painteddesigns.nl In July 2007, I received an email from Lew Wood, the actor who appears in this commercial. He tells: I am the guy tha D-D-B chose to be the spokesman for that famous "Floating VW" TV commercial in June , 1972. My name is Lew Wood, and I was doing commercials and V/O's in NYC when I was booked for the job. We shot it at a launching ramp in Stamford, CT on LI Sound. The production crew was Horn-Greiner. Director Norm Greiner. D-D-B's creative director was Tom Yobaggy. And even Mr. Bernbach was on the location! They hired a stuntman to drive the VW into the water. However, Norm Greiner suddenly woke up to the fact that I had to deliver that last line "Now, what other car gives you this kind of quality at this kind of price?" from the car! I said, "Norm, I'm a sailor, I'm at home on the water. I'll drive it in!" I splashed it three times. (We used three identical Beetles, all burnt orange in color. Splashed two of them alternately, the third never got wet and was used for "beauty shots." Swimmers went in to tow them back to shore after each take. We all thought our commercial would win the "Clio" that year, but the "Snowplow" commercial took the prize. However, the residuals were nice! After many years of searching for a 1972 Super Beetle in burnt orange with NO RUST, I finally found one a few years ago in Vista, CA, and snapped it up. I now proudly drive around town frequently and get admiring looks. Now, you know "the rest of the story!" Lew Wood died in August 2013, at the age of 84 years. This commercial has a surprise in it. At the and you can watch a beetle being driven into the water. Funny is the text in the commercial says: allthough the beetle does definately float, it will not float indefinately. Fun!

An abrupt end to the 1962 VW project
I spent the morning working on trying to free up the rear wheels. Heated them, soaked them in oil, and yarned on 'em till I was sore. Then I thought of a wonderful solution! hahahaha.. Now on with the rest of my life..
