Karl Lagerfeld debuted his TV spot as the new face of Volkswagen on German television last Wednesday—and we've got the clip for you after the jump. Lagerfeld is the new face of Style, a special-edition add-on package for Volkswagen's Golf and Polo models which include a set of lightweight alloy rims, fog lamps, and tinted privacy glass. A Style-Plus package includes all those extras pus a sunroof and an upgrades set of rims.

Karl Lagerfeld hawking alloy rims? We never thought we'd see the day.
