Simon & Garfunkle's The Sounds of Silence in a VW ad that suggests they are going
to introduce an all-electric, contemporary-styled vehicle inspired by the classic VW bus.

They should've made the VW bus chartreuse and used "Convoy" :)

The commercial is titled "Hello Light" and is one minute 45 seconds long.  It begins with
audio clips that explicitly reference VW's falsification of diesel emissions tests and seems
to tell the story of an engineer seeking to rehabilitate the company's image.  He looks for
inspiration in past designs, including the classic VW bus.  Near the end we get glimpses
of the I.D. Buzz, a concept car first shown in 2017, and scheduled to become a production
vehicle in 2022.

Heard a radio commercial for State farm, in which OMC's "How Bizarre" became "I Hit a Car".
