Okay, no more confusion: The commercial with the 20-something going to work everyday is titled 'Bubble Boy.' The song featured is from 1977, from our old friends the Electric Light Orchaestra (ELO). The title is 'Mr. Blue Sky.' The song is on their Greatest Hits album. A Quicktime of the commercial is up at Volkswagen's website. Word.
