"Doo-Bee-Doo 2014" from legendary songwriter and producer Giorgio Moroder is featured in Volkswagen of America, Inc's new game day "Wings" spot. It is his modern-day take on one of his early compositions.
Volkswagen's 2014 Game Day commercial "Wings," developed by ARGONAUT, a San Francisco-based creative agency, centers around VW's 100,000 mile claim-that the brand has the most vehicles on the road with over 100,000 miles*. Since making its debut on the automaker's YouTube earlier this week, the spot has already garnered almost four million views. It will also air in the second quarter of the Big Game thisSunday, February 2, marking the fifth consecutive year that Volkswagen has advertised on Game Day.
Next, look for Mr. Moroder to appear at Moogfest in April among other major festival plays to be announced soon.
*Calculation of total vehicles with over 100,000 miles per brand based on Wolfram Alpha (www.wolframalpha.com) average mileage per year data and IHS Automotive: Polk global registrations in 49 countries, as of November 2013.
