More About Artist & Song

So I’m listening to this song on Rdio right now. I’d kind of forgotten about it. This song was off of Chamillionaire’s album The Sound of Revenge. I remember when it came out, it was everywhere. This was the pinnacle of the paid ringtone phenomena. “Ridin'” (It’s not called “Ridin’ Dirty”) sold 3.2 million ringtones, which was the top ringtone of 2006. This song was also named by Rolling Stone as the #3 best song of 2006. It’s about police brutality and racial profiling, while at the same time the lyrics admit to prostitution and driving under the influence. Despite the lyrics, it’s played after Houston Astros baseball victories. I’m sure partly because Chamillionaire is a hometown hero, being from Houston.

Below is the video for the song Ridin’, and then below that of course is the Weird Al Yancovic version of this song: White & Nerdy.

Volkswagen Car Commercial Description

2012 Volkswagen Tiguan car commercial starts out with a mother pulling up to the grocery store driving a sort of modified green Honda del Sol car. She is sophisticated looking and doesn’t seem to belong with that car. She opens the trunk to put groceries in, and the trunk is taken up entirely by speakers. As she drives home, we can see the ground effects lighting up the underside of the del Sol car. When she gets home, she gets out of the car and her daughter pulls up with her boyfriend, in a 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan. They swap keys back with mom. The mom was driving the boyfriends car, while she made sure her daughter was in the safer Volkswagen Tiguan SUV.
