Newark, NJ (June 10, 2009) – Volkswagen called on Preferred Freezer Services – Ultra Freeze to film an ad in one of the facility’s six blast freezers, each capable of reaching a temperature of -55° Fahrenheit. The premise- starting their TDI Clean Diesel vehicle in a -25° temperature environment. A 2010 Golf TDI was placed into a blast freezer and frozen to create temperatures found in the world’s coldest city, Yakutsk, Siberia. The spot was filmed as a part of Volkswagen’s Truth & Dare campaign about their TDI Clean Diesel technology.

“There was no movie magic…the car was frozen to -25° Fahrenheit. The air temperature actually hit -40° Fahrenheit during some parts of the shoot” said Peter Lepe, Sales Manager of Preferred Freezer Services – Ultra Freeze.
