    Yep. Love that commercial. After it was originally discussed, I was wondering why the DeLorean was in it, and I since learned that it's probably because VW now owns the design studio, ItalDesign Giugiaro S.p.A, founded in part by Giorgetto Giugiaro. He/they designed many iconic cars, and arguably one of the most timeless is the DeLorean.

    or because a former owner works for the advertising company

    and then we all remember the James Bond advertisement where they presented
    the Delorean as a complete junk car and JB drove away with a Beetle
