Volkswagen of America is debuting “Rain,” a spot promoting its new bumper-to-bumper vehicle warranty.

Directed by Lance Acord of Park Pictures, the :60 from Deutsch recaptures the spirit of music festivals of the 1960s and celebrates the heritage of the brand. Highlighting the microbus, since it has been a cultural icon, VW is bringing us back to a time of love and harmony and putting its drivers first--hence the rollout of the automaker’s People First Warranty.
