@Sathee46! Absolutely wonderful. Makes even the competetor wait for the next move, let alone the general public.

Default Audi vs BMW

The guys over at Jalopnik came up with a contest to design Audi's response to the BMW "checkmate" I am posting the link here since the responses are hosted on Jalopniks website

Jalopnik - BMW Vs. Audi: Jalopnik Readers Turn Billboard Cold War Hot! - Audi BMW Billboards

I personally like the first one and the last one the best!

P.s. do note that these are not actual ads but photo-chops by jalopnik readers

Default Audi shoots back!

The billboard war taking place between Audi and BMW in Southern California has taken yet another turn . After Audi called out its cross-country rival by saying "Your Move, BMW" on a billboard overlooking Santa Monica Blvd. advertising the new A4, BMW responded by renting its own billboard across the street that simply showed the M3 and "Checkmate." Audi then had some fun collecting photoshopped billboard responses from fans on its Facebook page before revealing its own retort. The new billboard, which reportedly went up today, shows the R8 supercar next to this proclamation: "Time to check your luxury badge. It may have expired."

There are more ad wars to post. One from India:

Jet airways billboard: We have changed. Fly Jet airways.
Kingfisher airlines response: We made them change.
Spicejet : We have not changed at all. We are still the cheapest way to fly in india.

I don't have the pix with me but I'm sure someone of you must have it.

If you want more of airline ad wars then you should see the ones that crop up in the Ooh! Media screens.
There is an airline called : GO
KF says: Go Embarrased!
and many more.

I have seen an ad like this on web.
That was between 350Z and Forester. It was a nice one.

Let me google it.
