(Editor’s note: Vintage television commercials can be as classic as the cars they promoted back in the day. This is one in an ongoing series of such vintage car commercials we’ve found on YouTube.)

Airing sometime in the ‘60s or perhaps even into the ‘70s, Volkswagen’s debut a commercial for the Bug proclaiming that car was so airtight you couldn’t close the door, but rather had to push it shut.

If that doesn’t work, this commercial offers viewer’s advice to open the window before you close the door.
