Dave Gahan

When the first Volkswagen Golf launched back in 1974, the world was still six years away from meeting Depeche Mode, but both are now pillars of their respective industries. The British band has just released its 13th album, Volkswagen is set to introduce the Golf MkVII, and the two have teamed up for one of the hatchback's new TV spots.

Showing the diversity of the Golf, the commercial features several different cover versions of Depeche Mode's 1984 hit, "People Are People." The spot ends with the original version of the song in the background and Depeche Mode frontman Dave Gahan behind the wheel. You can check it out below.
