Bandwidth would be an issue though.<p>I'm checking on DVD availability though.

John was nice enough to confirm that they have a limited number of extra DVDs that were used in the recent direct mail piece that were sent. This DVD features comprehensive product information as well as background on the making of the two All New S40 launch commercials (the finished commercials are not part of the DVD). Interested parties can call Volvo Personal Shopper at 1 800 550 5658 to obtain a copy. Volvo will fulfill as availability permits.

I just saw the video game ads.<p>It's not bad...but it involves the car hitting stuff like in a video game.<p>It even shows the car flipping and rolling over!<p>Weird...<p>I wanna see the music video one

I saw the music video one, pretty lame.<p>The video game ad is by far the better of the two.<br>I like the Volvo hitting things and rolloing over, thats what Volvo ads used to be. We should go back to that style of ad rather than some hip hop hosers.
