Volkswagen leaders released a teaser of this year's Super Bowl commercial, and it continues the same quirky, lighthearted vein as past commercials. 

The commercial features characters who have gone viral via YouTube, one of whom is Minor League Baseball manager Phillip Wellman, who threw an elaborate tantrum at a baseball game in Chattanooga. 

The scene in the commercial is from the tantrum at the Chattanooga game at AT&T Field.

Past VW commercials, such as "The Force," attracted attention and praise

"The Force" featured the 2012 Passat and mini Darth Vader, who made an appearance in Chattanooga during the grand opening of the plant. 

Updated @ 2:12 p.m. on 1/25/13 to add more information as it became available.
