Default Top Gear VW Ad

Well i know this ad may not be the best ad in the business but you cannot deny Jeremy Clarkson's indomitable sense of humor.

Possibly the best ad that VW never published

Default BMW 'Jump for Joy' Commercial Takes a Shot at Audi

A new, extended version of the BMW "Jump for Joy" spot surfaced on YouTube. The new version does its best to lightly mock Audi, by calling BMW drivers and passengers a little more hip, and athletic.

As the company says, don't try this at home. But we are tempted to try jumping our bikes into the back a 5-series GT.

Watch the two-minute long video and let us know what you think below.

reviving an old thread. it's audi's turn to take on merc, bmw & lexus now.

Audi has launched a new ad campaign that takes jabs at Lexus, BMW, and Mercedes.

The first spot, dubbed Friendly Competition, says "...there's a winner and a loser, a runner up, second best, the one who fell a little bit short - our friends at BMW know exactly how this feels." It ends with the tagline "Audi has defeated BMW in three straight Car and Driver comparisons."

The second commercial, Spell, shows people in a daze talking about what they've been told to think about cars. Audi effectively says Lexus is "beige and predictable", Mercedes is a "hollow status symbol", and BMW is for poseurs. When an Audi drives by, the actors come out of their daze - the spell is broken.

Lovely ads from Audi. Especially loved the second ad. The Spell is broken! It truly is!

Out of all these I found the O RLY to be the best and funniest. Simple but very effective in the context. Had me in splits. Wish Audi has used that instead of that lame attempt.

Ha ha, some of these advertisements really give a good laugh.

This is advertising at it's best!

But the best one are the BMW vs Audi and Volvo vs Saab.

Nice one! Some parts are made up it seems. Like the wheels going upwards w/o that much of inertia and all.
