Singin’ in the Rain

Crass commercialism or just ultra-sweet?!? Take a minute and watch this new VW Golf commercial, featuring an updated version of ​“Singin’ in the Rain” where Gene Kelly is popping and locking, and decide for yourself.

Actually, it’s the inimitable David Elsewhere (you know, the guy in those freaking awesome Kollaboration videos) that’s doing the popping and locking. The equally inimitable Jason Kottke just posted an interview with Elsewhere, which is worth another minute or two of your time.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I suddenly feel the urge to practice my robot.
