the postioning of audi in this spot doesn't work for me.
audi is frankly nothing of a rebel anymore. maybe years ago with the TT. but nowadays it's one among other luxury cars. bmw (remember and mercedes already did a sportive postining several times.

car adverts are very controversial stuff - so if I'm a fan of Volvo or Toyota - Audi does not work for me anyway and so on...
but ok. this ad is nice, only in this case Audi is quite similar to the brands which that suited old dude showed so it's not popping out of the context - more contrast needed.

the idea is cool and it's something a little different from Audi. Not the typical car porn ad we're use to seeing.

Though I would say the concept and the ending don't work...starts off challenging the establishment and ends like EVERY OTHER CAR AD.

I hate car clients. So cliche. I'm sure they butchered this.

It's only an A5...might work with an RS. And what ever happened to not using the word "broken" in a car ad?

An RS5 would have worked better, much better, but they aren't out yet. I liked it because its mostly true, a lot of BMW and Mercedes owners look down on Audi, this is a commercial about how they are trying to break into markets that those cars hold because their cars are just as good, and less expensive. Its not as much about rebellion as breaking the cycle of getting the same car your dad had, just as they said.
