Audi R8 and R8 V12 TDI Superbowl Ads

Audi presented this week-end during the Super Bowl the ads for the R8 and the R8 TDI Concept. The 60-second ad, which was inspired by the Oscar-winning film "The Godfather", is critical to connecting with luxury vehicle customers. In addition to the creative content associated with the epic film, the ad features prominent placement of the Audi R8, the brand’s first mid-engine sports car.

Actor Alex Rocco, who portrayed the character of Moe Greene in the first “Godfather,” is starring in the ad. He wakes up to find his Rolls Royce grille at his feet copying the famous scene from the Godfather where Hollywood producer Jack Woltz wakes to find his prized horse Khartoum’s head in his bed.

I don’t know if you remember, but the other days there was a very popular commercial for a tractor. can’t remember the name right now. But it was much, much more better than what Audi made in here. Very disappointed about it!!

It is really pathetic to see the lack of imagination of Audi marketing ! Not funny, not interesting, just ridiculous... A sad day for Audi Marketing.

I can’t believe they paid big hollywood bucks for such a crappy commercial, when they announced their budget was set very high i was expecting a masterpiece of some sort. Hell even the porsche commercial where the little kid says ill see you in 20 years was better than this crap. Anyone with me?
