Great commercials make viewers wish purchasing the featured product will result in the scenarios portrayed in the advertisement, which is exactly why the 2012 Volkswagen Beetle 'High Five' ad is pure genius.

As a promo for the latest Beetle, the 2012 Volkswagen Beetle 'High Five' ditches the stunt-driving formula in favor of a more quirky approach. The clip starts with the driver who receives a high five from a stranger. As he cruises around the streets, more and more individuals continuously greet him in a friendly manner that's both mysterious and wonderfully strange at the same time. If this happened everyday, morning commutes in the car would be a lot less aggravating -- perhaps commuters would even be joyous by the time they pulled up in front of the office.
