New Subaru Commercial Portrays 2015 XV Crosstrek as Fountain of Youth

“Dramatization. Do not attempt.” – Yeah, that’s probably a good call, Subaru

A new Subaru commercial for the 2015 XV Crosstrek makes the crossover seem more like a DeLorean, thanks to its apparent time-traveling abilities. Set to the tune of Joshua Radin’s “Beautiful Day,” the ad claims that “You’re only young once – unless you have a Subaru.”

Take a look:

The title of the television spot, “Fountain,” refers to the fabled fountain of youth, as the ad itself features a couple that magically transforms into children as they go for a spin in the 2015 XV Crosstrek. According to the Japanese automaker, this new Subaru commercial is meant to illustrate “how a drive in a new XV Crosstrek can unleash the hidden child in us all.”

“The XV Crosstrek advertising campaign demonstrates how this fun-to-drive crossover can go many places,” said Alan Bethke, Subaru’s vice president of marketing. “The XV Crosstrek offers fuel economy, cargo capacity and all-wheel drive, as well as the latest safety and entertainment technology.”
