Germany and Germani come together to bring you these two short films that predate the launch of the Volkswagen Beetle in Malaysia. Playing on the sentimental theme (isn’t that what you’d expect from Volkswagen?), the first video depicts David’s coming of age (played by local Youtube act Joseph Germani) when his parents make a decision to present him with a little box. What’s in the box? What else could be in the box?

The second video brings us 18 years forward, and David teaches his son about taking care of prized possessions. All very heart-wrenching stuff, and more is to come – if you like what you see, the third video will be out August 23.

The new Beetle will be launched at the Volkswagen Das Auto Show from September 7 to 9 at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre. Register here for tickets.
