Audi has posted an 'interactive' video on YouTube promoting its new A6 sedan. "Closed Course" is nearly two minutes of video game animation showing an A6 hot-shoeing it around an autocross course with a picture-in-picture view of the driver.

If this sounds boring, well, it is. But you're not supposed to just sit there and watch the video. By pressing the number keys, you skip back and forward to different parts of the video, thus creating the impression that you're actually controlling the car.

By timing your button-pushing just right, you can make the Audi navigate a course of your own design in a fairly seamless fashion. While this little game is no Dragon's Lair, it's worth wasting a few minutes at work – just be sure to let the entire video buffer before you start your tire squealing fun. Click past the jump to check it out.

      When BMW released the M3 they made entire video game called "BMW M3 Challenge". Ferrari have game on they own in which you can drive all models. Audi? They made stupid video!
