Volkswagen Night Drive Golf Ad


Night Driving by Golf Ad. Under Milkwood by Dylan Thomas is narrated by Richard Burton. I found out more at www.night-driving.com says it was shot by Noam Murro in LA.

  1. As an insomniac who bought another VW recently,this ad and the car have served me well.I’d still like to hear Richard Simmons or that buffoon Sarah Palin narrate it though,for laughs.

  2. I often come to this video in the dead of night. The visuals along with the forboding atmosphere created by Richard Burton here is simply captivating. If you seperate these elements, ie; the voice, imagery and music then it brings different feelings but together it creates something simply provocative. I think that’s the best form of artisic expression because it seems to harness a different mood all together. One there are no words for.

  3. Richard Burton voice is so good, sure he was welsh. “but”

    who else would you think would make a good 2nd narrator??

    Englishman I think john hurt ?
    American i think Morgan Freeman ?

  4. As odd as it may sound, the sleepy surreal atmosphere of this ad is very similar to “Beyond”, a short story from the Animatrix (it’s the one where a girl is searching for her lost cat and stumbles upon a haunted house). Do a search on youtube for “Rare soundtrack from Animatrix – Beyond ” and you will find the complete soundtrack together with a download link. It would make a great soundtrack for some user-created night drive timelapse. *hint hint*

  5. ” That strange new world of ethereal silence that night transforms the everyday world into.” There aren’t many of us that see that, unfortunately. You are one of us, my friend. Welcome to the realm of the Night Wanderers. Our symbol is the white rose . . .

  6. You can hear the dew falling, and the hushed town breathing.

    Only your eyes are unclosed to see the black and folded town fast, and slow,
    asleep.

  7. And all the people of the lulled and dumbfound town are sleeping now.
    Hush, the babies are sleeping, the farmers, the fishers, the tradesmen and
    pensioners, cobbler, schoolteacher, postman and publican, the undertaker and the
    fancy woman, drunkard, dressmaker, preacher, policeman, the webfoot cocklewomen
    and the tidy wives. Young girls lie bedded soft or glide in their dreams, with
    rings and trousseaux, bridesmaided by glow-worms down the aisles of the
    organplaying wood.

  8. @C***ENF***ER if it introduces us, the ‘contemporary plebs’, to the play, or his work in general, what’s your problem? Surely that can only be a good thing. Maybe you should write to the advertising agency and suggest they include the whole play next time if you’re worried that it’s making those of obviously inferior intelligence to you like the wrong bits of Thomas’ work.

  9. Great Ad – always love to hear Richard Burton’s voice. No one could narrate quite like him.

  10. i’ve actually converted this into an mp3, i love listening too it on my ipod! this advert is amazing!

  11. @Alibm80 – i’m gutted they took it down – it’s one of the bext interactive video pieces I’ve ever seen… 🙁

  12. @EDP407 As if It casts a spell on you to subconsciously put on your coat, grab your keys and go ….. It’s just pure magical, mysterious seduction !

  13. Can’t get enough of this ad ….. It’s very addictive ! So sad the VW night driving website has been discontinued …. 🙁

  14. I would have to agree that this ad was the best I have ever seen… it has actually inspired my group (EuroVagens) to do these every once and a while… Fun, relaxing, and a good time!
