The Volkswagen Super Bowl Commercial "The Force" is taking most of the attention, but the second Volkswagen Super Bowl Commercial dubbed "Black Beetle" is also a masterpiece. Volkswagen has now published a Making of Video that shows how much work went into 30 seconds of the action packed bug chase. The creative team behind the Black Beetle ad actually built a real forest. The only computer generated elements in this ad are the bugs.
The aim was to create an ultra-realistic video that takes elements of car commercials and apply it to insects. I imagine the production cost for Black Beetle are close to what Volkswagen paid for the 30 second spot to FOX ($3m).

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
