Volkswagen has a long, proud history when it comes to that most American of traditions - the Super Bowl commercial. For this year's big game – its fifth as an advertiserVW has a new idea. There is no tiny Vader or Jamaican accents, just a very German formula.

The formula attempts to compile all the best elements of humorous ads into the ultimate commercial for our "big American football festival." You'll notice the board includes such important things as puppies, twerking, groin hits, Carmen Electra and babies. Predictably, it all goes horribly, horribly wrong.

You'll be able to see the full spot during Super Bowl XLVIII on February 2, 2014. Scroll down for the teaser trailer.

      Unfunny, and when did a teaser for a commercial become a thing? Still loving my 07 Eos though so whatever.

      I don't know about advertisements, but VW does use this algorithm to design cars... and it shows.

      I am so sick of heering about the 'superiority of German engineering' from every German manufacturer. They aren't any more reliable than manufacturers from other regions, often less so, and are always ridiculously expensive to repair.
