VW's "Alarm Clock"
The commercial is set in a Chinese setting including houses and green lawns with Chinese music in the background. Large red symbol-like letters introduce "the new Beatle vs. an alarm clock." The alarm clock goes off. The camera zooms into the headlights of a new Volkswagen Beatle. Suddenly the alarm clock explodes. A gong sounds and the words "Goodness Prevails" appear above the shiny red Beatle. A narrator directs the viewer to "forceofgoodness.com." The commercial ends with the demand "Drivers Wanted. VW."
