Beetle versus Dunkerbeck: who's faster?

What happens when a 21st Century Volkswagen Beetle challenges Björn Dunkerbeck to a speed race? The fierce battle is on and the winner hasn't been decided. Klaas Voget is in the driver's seat and is looking forward to give Dunkerbeck a tough lesson.

Shot in Romo, Denmark, the new TV commercial by Volkswagen is brilliant. With grey skies, the entire filming crew prepared the set for a theatrical play. "Since we're not sure who's faster, we decided to make it a race", says Voget.

Watch the entire windsurfing ad. It's the man versus the machine. Despite the intense rain, the shooting went well and everyone was excited. After the head-to-head start, both parties kick off to full throttle.

"If Klaas doesn't watch out, I am going to steal the car keys from him and I'll take it for a spin here in the beach", Björn jokes. In the end, it looks like it's too close to call a winner. What do you think? Who's won the challenge?

Björn Dunkerbeck has been working with Volkswagen for 10 years.
