VW highlights its new Golf R in a humorous pair of videos ft Tanner Foust & Michael

Anyone interested in seeing more on the new R should head over to VW's website: http://rrr.vw.com/


Tanner, we feel your pain. You are, by all accounts, an excellent driver. You've won races, starred in television shows, and generally proven yourself a nice all-around guy. And then Volkswagen shows up and asks you to be as childish as possible for a couple laughs on video as you make pretend driving sounds for the German brand's latest ad campaign. How demeaning.

And then, to top it all off, they bring Michael Winslow, the king of noise-making merriment, to one-up you. How could they?

Just kidding. Really, the videos you see above and below are pretty clever, highlighting the same 18th letter of the alphabet that is affixed to the Golf R, a car we're deeply in lust with. And, to be honest, Tanner's goofy driving sounds are just as good as Mr. Winslow's. See for yourself.

And if you feel like acting out your own inner child on VW's behalf, feel free to click here.

Quite a cheeky commercial. Makes me want to check out the website, which I guess is the point, but I don't think it makes me want to buy the Golf.

More than likely its just part of a series of videos to come out about the new Golf R having different motivations around them.

Next, i'd like to see something that helps to pull in buyers.

Even better if they surprise us by starting it off as a continuation of what was originally seen and then skip right the real deal :D

We'll know where they got the idea from if this ever happens. Also, no idea why they feel bad for him. He seems to be enjoying himself and everyone at some point in their life has made car sounds whilst driving.
