This is original grille of the 1979-80 Holden Commodore VB.
By the headlamps wipers and bumper overriders an SL/E trim level I think: https://www.uniquecarsandparts.com.au/brochures_1978_holden_commodore_zoomall
On the other hand the overriders are too thick, compared to the car in brochure.

Anyone know which LHD export markets, if any, Holden had at that time?

Or could it be a Saehan//Daewoo Royale?

Doing a manual Google search on nomer.org results, it appears there were a few Holdens at least in Moscow during the late Soviet era.

But they are all listed as simply 'Holden' (one as 'Golden Holden' :D) so it's impossible to pinpoint the respective models.

Unlikely, it's a common grey-import, like many other cars in the USSR.

@Ingo - Oh no! Adverts with specially written lyrics about the product are the worst :D

Earlier work of Jean Michelle Jarre from the 1970s was much better (well except the earliest of the earliest).

Not more ambient, but ambient in a different way.

Well, there some popular componists have survived with such profane music.
This

is from Christian Bruhn, well known for many movie-soundtracks.

Even Klaus Doldinger, a popular Jazzer, mainly known for
https://youtu.be/3LSMesXvjq8
has earned money with stuff like this:

P.S. no kidding, when I have to calm down of the stress in my job, I choose music like this for the background.
Or the playlist of the de Angelis-brothers ("Oliver Onions"), sometimes even Mongolian throat singing.
It really works.

But music - composition, melody is not the problem, lyrics in this type of adverts are ;)

These are OK. I guess VW bought and used already his existing tracks.
BTW. This film would be worth page IMO :p It is more serious thing - quick look and seems it even mentions working conditions in VW(?) and factory workers housing estates.

"Ritorno a Mompracem" (sung version) from Sandokan and many tunes from "Il Corsaro Nero" are able to improve my mood already since many years :)

They even composed the soundtracks for worst terrible "snuff movies" (which in Germany still are forbidden) - but the music is nice.

No, music and jingles for clips, are similar commissional works as creating videos or pics.

From a fellow, who collects such music (which was a hard challenge back in pre-Youtube-times), I was told, that in the DDR there was used quite progressive psychodelic music for promo-clips (which existed there until ca.1970), so in times, when the Western clips had been more conservative.

My favorites of the de Angelis-soundtracks are:

But not always have to be composed specially for such promo materials like this VW film. There is after all the whole "library music".

With such music they should hire Richard Roundtree to these TC2 adverts ;)
