That Time VW Brought Back German Legends in an Ad Campaign



With the technology available today, bringing back iconic celebrities back to life (or in this case back to their prime also) doesn't seem all that hard. I personally loved it when TV commercials started incorporating clips from videos recorded years ago, into modern day shots.

German automaker Volkswagen did just that with one of their ad campaigns for the Volkswagen Team 2010 model, bringing three German legends back to their prime using previously recorded footage.

The iconic German afro-man Paul Breitner is first in the shot and he calls out two names...Fritz and Rudi; the video continues with none other than young Rudi Völler showing up together with Fritz Walter, who in fact has passed on more than a decade ago.

Sure, the integration of the stars in their prime years does not look one hundred percent realistic, but I'm sure it's not meant to be. Nonetheless, not many outside of Europe had seen this ad before and I liked the concept so much that I decided to share it today.
