Before we move on from the subject of 2013 Super Bowl ads, here’s a nod to the enterprise shown by USA Today’s Ad Meter. Not satisfied to simply look at VW’s ad making allusions to viral videos, these go-getters went and rounded up all the original clips that made these people “famous,” at least in an Andy Warhol sense. And we repeat the WARNING — there is some bad language in the originals:
Last night, VW released a teaser for their Super Bowl commercial, a funny spot featuring Jimmy Cliff serenading the stars of some of the internet’s most embarrassing videos. Like Woodward and Bernstein, we here at Ad Meter set to work finding all of the viral videos featured in the commercial. (Well, sort of like Woodward and Bernstein. OK, not at all like Woodward and Bernstein.) Watch the videos below, and holler at us on Twitter @USATODAYadmeter if we’re missing any. (Warning: some bad language in the videos below.)
