Remember when Uncle Karl said that he wanted to represent washing machines because they were so chic and so pretty and “I would like to have one — not to wash clothes but to put in my dressing room to hold my dirty laundry?”

Of course you do.

Apparently, Karl has exhausted the space in that washing machine, and he’ll soon be storing his dirty laundry in a Volkswagen. He’s starring in a series of 30 second commericals for the car company, where he plays a paparazzi (he shoots Taylor Momsen! Umm, with a camera). Director Johan Renck says the ad campaign is “a mix between coolness and iconic style, like Karl himself.”

The ads start running in germany on December 22nd, so start checking youtube every five minutes then.
