New Volkswagen Passat Commercial Features Rush's Fly By Night

The 2012 Volkswagen Passat has been named the 2012 Motor Trend Car of the Year. Announcing this accolade, Volkswagen has created a new commercial for the Passat which features Rush's Fly By Night (the song).

The video can be viewed below:

Sharp eyes will notice 'Rush' and 'Fly By Night' listed on the car stereo around the 20-second mark.

The video can also be viewed directly at YouTube.

Thanks to RushFanForever for passing along the link.


  1. The best thing about this commercial is that they used a good classic tune and not something off Moving Pictures for a change!

    1. First thing I thought of, as well, after seeing the new ad.

  2. Fly By Night away from here....

  3. Just saw the commercial. Laugh out loud funny. Love it.

  4. The Best. Laughed my head off.

  5. RUSH... the talent is this band continues to get further recognition... deservedly so....

  6. One thing I always appreciated about Rush is that they don't shill products. It's a cute commercial, but I hope it disappears from the face of the earth. I don't want to think "German cars" when I hear Fly By Night. I am surprised and disappointed that this happened. Let's see the boys get recognition for their amazing talent and music, not the products they endorse.

  7. I have no fear that they'll not get caught up in any of that:

    "...For the words of the prophets were written on the studio wall,
    Concert hall
    And echoes with the sounds of salesmen. Of salesmen. Of salesmen...."

  8. of course, why not indulge a little fantasy here.
    what song and product would make the most epic commercial combination?

  9. is there a vw plant in canada? lol rush out and buy one canada
