Music: Needle in a Haystack (Specially Recorded)
Download the Fred Astaire original from iTunes
This clever VW ad follows a tall girl on a quest to find the perfect partner, with her height-equivalent match finally turning up in a surprisingly spacious Volkswagen Up! (The exclamation mark in Vokkwagen’s.) The ad, from the adam&eveDDB agency, was directed by Chris Palmer at Gorgeous Enterprises. The soundtrack is a specially recorded version of Needle in a Haystack, written by Herb Magidson and Con Conrad, and originally sung by Fred Astaire in the 1934 film The Gay Divorcee (and not to be confused with the 1964 Motown hit of the same name by the Velvelettes). You can download the Fred Astaire version from iTunes.
