Volkswagen goes surreal

An awesome VW ad that is not only entertaining to watch but says something about the nature of creating perfect design. Also shows off some VW Golf parts like disc brakes, exhaust, engine, and you get a look at the assembly line. Really clever.

Features Jeans Team's Keine Melodien for soundtrack. That song was covered by Peaches on The Teaches of Peaches, BTW.

Anybody know whether VW actually employs a designer named Karl Lühr? That's what it says on the name plate at the door. I googled, but could not find anything conclusive. There seems to be a parts supplier company named "Lühr" though.
