Default New Audi A6 Commercial

Here is the new A6 commercial released few days back. I directly tease other brands as usual from the Audi.

A commercial with pretty cheap taste. Looked really desperate.

I really didn't find any sense in comparing a new Audi A6 to old and i must say very old Mercs and others ... ok the old cars shown may be icons but hey it really doesn't make sense... not a good ad at all...

Lovely promo. But the dig was quite unwarranted!

I disagree. BRILLIANT ad!! BRILLIANT car.

EDIT: The new Tata Safari ad is absolute nonsense. Believe me, I study Adverts as a part of my studies, and the Audi Ad is brilliant.

Audi has an entire website built to put down other marquees.

http://www.meetthebeckers.com/

Not sure if the site is currently working but I saw it couple of months back.
Each member of the becker family is a 'character' and it is reflected in the cars they own. Mr.Becker is a rich snob and drives a S-class. His oldest son is an arrongant prick and he drives a 3 series convertible. His Son in law is yale graduate and a meek person. He drives a Lexus RX300. His other son is a nice charming guy and owns a Audi A4.

This ad means to show that the other car brands were icons in their respective decades.
e.g. Mercedes in 70s, BMW in 80's, Lexus in 90's and Audi in 2000s referring to transporter movies and others.

I think if you see through that perspective this add is smarter than tata's. I think tata will make this kind of ad with the same message in 10 or 20 years. Their ad wil say maruti was an icon in 80's then came Fiat/ Hyundai etc.
