First, let’s watch this VW commercial from 1999.
Most people remember it. I know I saw it plenty of times when it first came out. Pretty funny, mostly because the guy in the car embraces the silliness of the moment.
Now, let’s look at this clip from one of my favorite shows ever, Arrested Development.
This isn’t just a funny reference to the commercial. Tonight I realized Tony Hale, the brilliant actor who portrayed Buster in the show, was also the one in that commercial! It just goes to show how fantastic the inside jokes in Arrested Development were. And now I can just hope and pray that I’ll live to see the Arrested Development movie be made (please, please, please Mr. Hurwitz).
