Backseat Drivers: Gene Kelly and Donald O’Connor

Earlier this week, our Gene Kelly Twitter feed exploded when the following Volkswagen Jetta commercial aired during a prime-time football game. At first, the response was split: people loved it; people hated it. But as the week has progressed, people have mostly expressed their disgust at the commercial.

What’s your opinion of the ad? Is it creepy, which is the word most people are using? Distasteful? Any worse than Volkswagen’s previous Gene Kelly ad featured below?


News, videos, and commentary devoted to the dancer, choreographer, director extraordinaire.
