Spooky Lunar Coincidence and a Volkswagen Commercial [VIDEO]

After a long nasty New England winter, the first beautiful spring evening drive home with the windows rolled down always makes me think of my favorite TV commercial of all time.

Yes, it’s for the ’99 Cabriolet. The music is the title track of Nick Drake’s final album ‘Pink Moon’ and you’d never guess that the recording is over 40 years old. Adding more spooky coincidence to this mix, last night’s lunar eclipse was that of the Full Pink Moon, not the flashier sounding ‘Blood Moon’ that you keep hearing about.

People are always bashing commercialization but without the fine advertising executives at Volkswagen, I’d have never discovered Nick Drake. And for what it’s worth, I couldn’t fit inside a 1999 Cabriolet with the roof top down and the seats removed.
