We won’t be discussing the actually Superbowl game here, although it was definitely one of the more exciting ones that I’ve seen recently, but we will discuss the Audi ad for a bit. It’s definitely not the first time Audi had made fun of the competition, but it sure is one of their better ones. Besides starring Jason Statham, the new Jean-Claude Van Damme of our times and star of any movie that involves blowing stuff up and punching 20 guys senseless at the same time, we get to see the new supercharged A6, and drivability when chased by two Buell Ulysses bikes. A Mercedes Benz 280SE 4.5 also stars in the movie-like commercial, along with an ’80s BMW 5-Series and a Lexus ES that Jason didn’t even bother driving.
I have to admit, I did enjoy the ad, and was probably the better one last night. They could even make it into a movie, hey, it’s not like Transporter 3 had a better plot and they made that into a movie.
