Volkswagen bettle retirement video

After 70 years, Volkswagen officially ended production of its iconic VW Beetle in July of 2019. To commemorate the legendary model, the German car manufacturer has now released a short animated film celebrating the Beetle’s history.

Titled “The Last Mile,” Volkswagen’s short movie follows a young man and his life milestones, including owning a Beetle, starting a family, and sending his kids to college. Towards the end of the movie, the elderly man watches the beloved car as it flies away and turns into a beetle.

The clip features cameos from famous personalities ranging from Ren McCormack and Kevin Bacon to Andy Warhol and Andy Cohen and is soundtracked by a cover of The Beatles’ “Let It Be” performed by a youth choir. Watch the clip above.
