“While most of the entertainment world has adapted to our busy schedules through on-demand viewing, Shark Week is a rarity in that it still captures millions of viewers in a week-long shared experience,” said Kevin Mayer, vice president marketing, Volkswagen of America, Inc. “Volkswagen is excited to add our unique touch to an event with such an impressive impact on pop culture.”

“As Discovery’s longest-running franchise and TV’s must-see summer event, Shark Week has a loyal audience, which we are proud to engage in this unique sponsorship with Volkswagen,” said Scott Felenstein, executive vice president, advertising sales, Discovery Communications. “We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Volkswagen, connecting them to our passionate fans to help drive brand awareness and showcase VW’s ingenuity and originality.”

On the social media front, VWoA is also sponsoring the Shark Week Plus viewing app, which enables sharing across iPhone and iPad devices, and online. Fans are encouraged to participate in this year’s new online experience Subaquatic Road Trip, enabling them to be transported into the 360-degree view of Luke Tipple’s underwater journey in the VW Beetle Shark Cage. Twitter hashtags for Shark Week are #SharkWeek and #VWSharkWeek.
