Adam Scott, Michael Peña, and Siri star in new Volkswagen CarPlay ‘App-Connect’ ad

Update: VW appears to have set the video to private now.

Volkswagen has released a new ad on its YouTube channel featuring actors Adam Scott and Michael Peña using CarPlay through VW’s “App-Connect” system. In the spot, the two men attempt to resolve a conflict using Siri to read text messages and look up locations. Peña also dives into the CarPlay home screen to pull up Spotify.

App-Connect is Volkswagen’s branding for its CarPlay and Android Auto integration, though this ad focuses solely on the iOS-compatible features. You can watch it below.

    It’s interesting that Apple is willing to go in on some very multi-platform advertising like this. I mean, the ad even features Spotify instead of Apple Music.
