The ultimate “Oprah” show fan gets the ultimate surprise: A 21st Century Beetle

The Oprah Winfrey Show knows a thing or two about surprising studio audiences. Back in November 2010, the show teased a silhouette of the 2012 Beetle as part of its final Ultimate Favorite Things episode. Then all 275 audience members received the surprise of their lives: a 21st Century Beetle of their own. Much rejoicing ensued.

One ultimate Oprah show fan, Justin, was picked to be in the audience that day, but there was a hitch: because Justin was five months shy of his 18th birthday, he wasnt allowed to attend. Even though he was disappointed, Justin wrote to the Oprah show producers and said, Although I was not at the show, I know something bigger and better will happen. Maybe Justin should have said something bigger and redder. But we wont ruin the surprisewatch the clip for yourself:
