None of us are mature enough to make a video like that! One of us would have drilled the side of that Audi with the nerf bar of one of the old roundy cars just for the hell of it.

The title of this thread should be "Ugly Audi & cool cars". That Audi is horrible looking, the lines don't really flow well and it looks like it has bags under it's eyes. And I'm with Verbal, the Audi wouldn't have come out unscathed.

Great commercial. Those cars under that lighting ruled. How cool would it be to spend the day on that set?

I think that commercial will send the wrong message to some viewers. haha. but not their aimed demographic.

Who would buy one of those things? How cool would it have been to be on the set for that shoot? Gimme any of the hot rods in that clip before the Audi...

-----The execution is based on a ‘beauty and the beasts' theme, showing a series of unattractive cars driving chaotically. An R8 Spyder then emerges, weaving through them, before the endline ‘Mirrors, signal, outmanoeuvre' appears.------

HAHAHA!!! Then why didn't they show it among their own Q7, A4, or A6. Sounds like they haven't looked in a mirror themselves! Great commercial. That new Audi reminds me of that Vauxhall that came out not too long ago.

Cool ad.
