Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet Roof

Volkswagen UK is marking the return of the Golf Cabriolet after nine years away from market with an advertising campaign centred in nostalgia. “Roof”, the television commercial at the centre of the campaign, takes viewers back to the childhood days of dogems, pedal cars and go-karts. “Remember how the cars you had most fun in never had a roof?”
