    Volkwagen Launches Fun New Spot as Part of ‘The Power of Vrrr Pha!’ Campaign

    Volkswagen has launched a fun new ad directed by Sam Coleman as part of its “The Power of Vrrr Pha” via Ogilvy South Africa. The soundtrack is Nonku Phiri’s isiXhosa rendition of ‘No Regrets’, life.

    ‘Such an anticipated launch needed an epic soundtrack. Something big and familiar which would match the languid pace of the slowed-down world,” said Coleman. “Recording it in isiXhosa was a late idea. I got excited about the opportunity of taking something from the museum of French culture and turning it on its head.


    Ogilvy South Africa, creative director, Alex Goldberg, added: “When you’re shooting scripts like this, the details are everything. And Sam is all about the details. Great eye, knows performance, brilliant with casting, and highly collaborative. He never fails to bring his own unique style to elevate a project into something that stays with you long after you’ve watched it.’
