2013 Volkswagen Super Bowl Ad Preview: Sunny Side

For last year's super bowl, they wowed us with "Little Vader", and we expect more of the same to come at halftime, when the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens face off.

Now, we can show you a preview of what's will ultimately be revealed as this year’s VW Game Day ad called Sunny Side. In this clip, they bring together some famously sad or mad people from across Youtube and cheer them up using the song “C’mon, Get Happy”.

We're not terribly impressed with what's going on in the commercial, nor can we figure out what it's about. The best idea we have is that it's for the new VW Beetle Convertible, though the connection between being happy and taking the top off your car is kind of a stretch.
