Wilt Chamberlain VolksWagen Commercial 1966

Imagine if former NBA superstar Wilt Chamberlain had existed in the era of Twitter, YouTube and the 24 hour news cycle. Despite the relative “radio silence” of the era in which Wilt existed, he was an absolute mega-super-uberstar of his day. He was a dominant wonder on the basketball court, was in demand for movie parts, claimed to have unprecedednted success in the bedroom with the ladies and of course, did his fair share of commercials.

This 1966 commercial for VolksWagen cars was just one.
