It’s rare that a TV commercial rises to the level of high art, but damned if Audi didn’t just nail it right here. In nearly three minutes of Spock on Spock action, we’ve got the following: Chess, swearing, Leonard Nimoy singing “The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins,” a ‘hand against the glass’ gag, and even a Vulcan nerve pinch for good measure. And if you’re wondering which one ends up being the one true Spock…just kidding. You weren’t really wondering that, were you? Don’t feel bad, though, Mr. Quinto. Leonard’s just been at this a lot longer than you have.
I for one don’t feel any overriding urge to buy an Audi. But I will congratulate them on a very excellent commercial. Can we call that enough?
- Pretty psyched for the new Star Trek movie, y’all
- And yeah, we’re huge Spock fans, like any right thinking person
- The DOT doesn’t want you texting from your Audi — or any other car
