how long does a vw beetle float? Just watch!

In July 2007, I received an email from Lew Wood, the actor who appears in this commercial. He tells:

I am the guy tha D-D-B chose to be the spokesman for that famous "Floating VW" TV commercial in June , 1972.
My name is Lew Wood, and I was doing commercials and V/O's in NYC when I was booked for the job. We shot it at a launching ramp in Stamford, CT on LI Sound. The production crew was Horn-Greiner. Director Norm Greiner. D-D-B's creative director was Tom Yobaggy. And even Mr. Bernbach was on the location!
They hired a stuntman to drive the VW into the water. However, Norm Greiner suddenly woke up to the fact that I had to deliver that last line "Now, what other car gives you this kind of quality at this kind of price?" from the car! I said, "Norm, I'm a sailor, I'm at home on the water. I'll drive it in!"
I splashed it three times. (We used three identical Beetles, all burnt orange in color. Splashed two of them alternately, the third never got wet and was used for "beauty shots." Swimmers went in to tow them back to shore after each take.
We all thought our commercial would win the "Clio" that year, but the "Snowplow" commercial took the prize.
However, the residuals were nice!
After many years of searching for a 1972 Super Beetle in burnt orange with NO RUST, I finally found one a few years ago in Vista, CA, and snapped it up. I now proudly drive around town frequently and get admiring looks.
Now, you know "the rest of the story!"

Lew Wood died in August 2013, at the age of 84 years.

This commercial has a surprise in it. At the and you can watch a beetle being driven into the water. Funny is the text in the commercial says: allthough the beetle does definately float, it will not float indefinately. Fun!

From the DVD 'Legend on wheels'. Wanna have this DVD packed with 2 hours of high quality digitally remastered old vw commercials? The DVD really brings you back to the '60s and '70s. Send an email to: beetlejuice150@hotmail.com

my 76 is very air tight, but i'm pretty sure it won't float after 38
years. I have to slighty crack the window just to shut the driver's door
all the way. That's how air tight it is.

Автор robvlob (1 месяц)
It would be nice if you could still pick one up that's in really good shape
for $1,999.00

20 odd years ago they were cheap you could of probably bought 3-5 in good
to great shape and a few parts cars for that price.

@TheAuto101 My moms kia is 8,000 and I much much MUCH rather Drive my bug
than that car. My beetle gets better gas mileage, and drives better, and
handles better, and is quieter than her car.

Автор 14omega28ok (1 год)
The gas mileage thing was a stretched truth I'll admit. Mine gets in the
neighborhood of 27 MPG. Although there are simple modifications (Or so I've
heard) like better Electronic ignition, Hotter spark plugs, and other
things that have claimed to boost mileage up into the 30's. I met a guy who
said his got around 32 MPG with a simple change in distributor
