Audi R8 Spyder commercial – Click above to watch video after the jump

This Audi commercial for the R8 Spyder has a tagline that sounds more like two spies verifying each others' identities – "Mirror. Signal. Outmaneuver." – and it has a supporting cast stranger than a man in a nuclear-powered suit. Not that it needs to be comprehensible since it's got that topless white beast in it, and we'll be fine with that, thank you.

Follow the jump
for a little Fellini-esque trip through Audi's mind.

      I'm missing out on so much by zipping through commercials.

      The heck with the Audi. Why don't they bring back the Geo Tracker???

      "I think this commercial is made for Europe , where people don't give a damn about hot rods and such things"

      I'm from the UK and everyone I speak to about the ad agree that the Hot Rods are the sweetest cars out there. The Audi R8 is an amazing car though, although with our weather only posers would buy the Spyder.

      Nice choreography as it were. I would have left off the R8's front plate.
      • 4 Years Ago
      The Car is pushing its front end at 34 seconds, I call that pink car with the bunny on it, or the orange one with the asterisk on the side. The one that peels out at the start is not half bad either. We should toss a Factory Five '33 coupe in there just to show that body shapes have nothing to do with handling at low speeds.

      1) I dont get it.
      2) The Audi is not even the 10th coolest car in that commercial.

        "i think this commercial is made for Europe , where people don't give a damn about hot rods and such things"

        The mass majority of them may not, just as most people outside of CA here in the states do not (except up few on AB), but if you watch the making of vid, 16 of those rods came out of England, and just 6 (probably the best, and most original to the rat rod theme) came out of the US.

        Agreed. The A8 looks like any new sports car in a room full of kick ass hot rods. The white makes it look even weaker. BTW I'm not even I hot rod guy but this ad tells me I should be. The "Unloved" car is awesome.

        I think this is a better Audi commercial

        Yeh to be honost all those Rat Racers are alot cooler then the Audi, beautiful it may be, it's no old school racer.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Ok, good. I'm not the only one. I want one of those old rat rods!
      • 4 Years Ago
      is it me or it failed to impress
        • 4 Years Ago
        You should never upstage your product in an ad. Those rat rods are really cool and full of character. The R8 is not.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I would take any of those cars over the Audi.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Though I understand what Audi's point is, I'm definitely more interested in the rat rods than the boring R8.

      I liked it. Anything beats Flo in those annoying Progressive Ins. ads.

      What about it is confusing?

      Kind of loses a lot by being shot in slow motion, don't you think?
