Volkswagen strikes back

It's Super Bowl weekend, which means it's a great time for hilarious commercials to go viral. Many companies are launching neat campaigns.

Coca-Cola, for example, gives your two polar bears to watch the Super Bowl with on their website www.cokepolarbowl.com. The bears will be reacting to the game, live.

One of the most anticipated spots has been Volkswagen's sequel to last year's popular Darth Vader ad. To  build the hype, the car company released a teaser ad entitled "The Bark Side." The official video has over 11 million views on YouTube.

This week VW released the full commercial. It's now a growing trend for these companies to let their commercials go viral before airing them in televisions most expensive time slot.

See both of Volkswagen's commercials at the right. Next week I'll bring you some of this year's most popular commercials.
