Volkswagen offers ‘Caraoke’ at auto show

Volkswagen workers at the New York International Auto Show are challenging visitors to perform their favorite songs via Caraoke.

The German company's display at the auto show includes a black VW Bug decked out for people to climb in and sing along to classic tunes including Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen and I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor, the New York Daily News reported Wednesday.

We want to engage people with our display, said a Volkswagen presenter at the show.

It gets very boring at the auto show sometimes. People just hand out posters, she said. We wanted something a little more interactive.

Caraoke singers can register to have videos of their performances sent to their e-mail addresses or they can view their videos on YouTube and vwcaraoke.com.
