Volkswagen has just released a teaser video for the new 2012 Beetle, with the car set to appear for the first time in a commercial during the Super Bowl this weekend.

The brief spot shows nothing more than a black beetle (the actual bug, not the car) speeding along like car. It even has white racing stripes. Yup, pretty pointless.

The 30 second ad will be shown during Super Bowl XLV with another spot for the new Passat – which has something to do with Darth Vader.

Hit the jump to watch the video:
