key stuck in ignition - HELP!!!

Found an old Passat Key in our key bin and tried to use it in our 06' Passat. Unfortunately, I think it was a key that had been disfunctional (and eventually replaced), but my wife forgot to throw it away.

Now the immobilizer is active and won't release the key.

Is there an easy way to release it?

''Simply put the car in park and push the button on the side of the shifter a couple times and you’ll hear the fob release.''
