Marc Langley’s in the Driver’s Seat for VW Tiguan

DadGone are the days when Daddy would greet his daughter’s date at the front door with a carload of intimidation. Today’s Dad is a lot more sophisticated. In this Volkswagen spot called “Prom Night” from DDB Canada, Daddy’s in control of his daughter’s prom date from the comfort of his Tiguan and the poor kid doesn’t stand a chance. Marc Langley was in the driver’s seat for editorial duties, and the spot was directed by Untitled Film’s Jean-Michel Ravon.

Rooster Post Helps Drive the Film, “Once More: The Story of VIN 903847”

In 1955, Paul Loofs bought a Volkswagen Beetle and decided to drive it around the world: not once, but three times. And 58 years after its first trip around the world, Beetle ‘VIN 903847’ is still on the road. The documentary film and interactive website, ‘Once More: The Story of VIN 903847’, follow the journey of the 1955 Beetle from past to present, in a remarkable story that has yet to end.

After stumbling upon archival pictures featuring a man and his 1955 Beetle, Volkswagen Canada along with Toronto-based advertising agency Red Urban knew they had a story to tell. Tracking down 82-year old Paul Loofs was just the beginning of a year-long project to bring the story of VIN 903847 to life.

Working closely with Academy Award-Nominated director Hubert Davis, of Untitled Films, and Paul Jutras, of Rooster Post Production, Red Urban created the thirty-minute documentary ‘Once More: The Story of VIN 903847’, which premiered on Discovery Channel and Bravo in January.

But the film is only part of the experience. The interactive site at oncemore.ca, uses the film as a backbone to an immersive exploration of the Beetle’s 58 year (and counting) history. Together, the documentary and the website provide a unique interactive experience, allowing viewers to fully immerse themselves in the story of ‘Once More’.

The documentary is airing on Bravo and Discovery Channel until the end of February. Showtimes are:

Bravo
Saturday February 22nd at 1PM

Discovery
Sunday February 16th at 8:30AM
Sunday February 23rd at 6:30AM
Friday February 27th at 6:30PM
