DeVotchKa's "Enemy Guns" used in new VW Passat commercial

DeVotchKa's music has been used in films like Little Miss Sunshine, and frontman Nick Urata has also been involved in scoring a number of films, including 2009's I Love You Phillip Morris. The band's cinematic and sprawling music lends itself quite well to visuals so it's not surprising Volkswagen used "Enemy Guns" to set the tone for the 2012 Passat TDI Clean Diesel commercial, which began to air this week.
