When an office workers boss gets tired of seeing him spending more time looking at his pet frog than doing his job, this guy decides it’s time to take his amphibian friend out to the wild to set him free.
After heading out in his VW Golf Alltrack, the pair arrive at a suitable body of water out in the country. But just as the man sets his buddy down on a nice wet rock, the frog looks back over at the car to indicate the kind of escapism he’s really been looking for.
From there the commercial ends with the guy enjoying a drive in the country, while his frog friend rides on the door with the window down.
This ad for the turbocharged Volkswagen Golf Alltrack with 4MOTION all-wheel drive was added to the Volkswagen USA YouTube page on October 14, 2016.
The song playing in the video is titled ‘Drivin’ My Life Away’, a hit in 1980 for the country music singer-songwriter Eddie Rabbitt.
Drivin’ My Life Away went on to top the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks countdown and reached number 5 on the Billboard Hot 100.
