Comeback of the music cassette

Agency: DDB


Oldtimer collectors often deal with the same concern: does the maintenance and repair of their valuable vehicles jeopardize their historical character. For several years now, Volkswagen offers a unique service for classic VW owners. Collectors do not have to search years for a missing piece, but they can rely on the 'Classic parts' service to order their original parts, spare parts or accessories. An important, but often-incomplete part in an oldtimer: the cassette radio. As audio tapes are getting harder to find, this particular medium is now threatened with extinction. The quality of authentic specimens leaves much to be desired. Therefore Volkswagen Belgium devised an original way to revive the audio cassette. Proud owners of a classic VW got a brand new cassette in their mail featuring the best international hits and anthems from the 70s and 80s.
