Volkswagen Closer

Volkswagen has launched “Closer”, a television commercial providing a deeply moving portrait of a woman’s emotional journey that proves the best technology really does bring us closer together. A woman takes a brave leap of faith to follow her heart and drive through the night to deliver a note in person. Each scene is a moment of magic, from the lingering decision at the start, to the hypnotic connection between deer and driver and ultimate reunification of lovers. The result is a visual poem that expresses the warmth at the heart of VW technology.
