Audi Spock Ad

Audi has come up with a wonderful ad which pits the old Spock against the new.

While you'll need to be a Trekkie to get a number of the jokes (some of which are quite subtle),  hopefully the pay off is not lost on those with just a cursory knowledge of Star Trek.

Since it takes up such a large part of the ad, and it way off the grid unless you're a pretty strong Star Trek geek, here's the reference to Bilbo Baggins (warning - it's ugly).  

For me, there is a ton to love about this ad.  But the best part is Nimoy's profanity at not being able to fit his golf clubs into his Mercedes.

Great ad.

  1. Fantastic ad, I don't know how I missed this. And I didn't think anyone remembered Nimoy's Bilbo song.


Please feel free to include any thoughts you may have. Know, however, that kiddos might be reading this, so please keep the adult language to yourself. I know, for me to ask that language is clean is a stretch...
