Stop The Presses!

Super Bowl XLV Commercial Preview With The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion!

Stop The Presses!

It's time to get ready for Super Bowl Sunday! While most of us will be watching--or generally celebrating--the big football game, other oddballs like me will be watching the commercials!

One spot in particular is a good one to look out for. It's an adventure in etymology for the new 2012 VW Beetle, featuring the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion doing an amazing cover of the classic track "Black Betty." The commercial features cutting-edge CGI that renders a lush kingdom where the black beetle rules!

Preview the commercial:
