Audi S7 Ad Features Zachary Quinto, Leonard Nimoy

#Audi, #S7

Audi and Star Trek fans will appreciate the following video clip, which features the S7 and the character Spock. The ad stars Leonard Nimoy from the original television series, and Zachary Quinto, who plays Spock in the movie remake.

The clip starts off with Nimoy and Quinto playing a virtual game of chess from their respective homes. After losing the match, Quinto challenges Nimoy to a race to the golf course -- the last one to arrive must buy lunch. Quinto pilots an Audi S7 while Nimoy gets behind the wheel of a Mercedes-Benz CLS550. In addition to the verbal jabs between the two Spocks, Audi sprinkles in a few knocks against the Benz, including Nimoy’s struggle to get his golf clubs in the car, resulting in a disgruntled look and an F-bomb. In the end, one Spock uses the Vulcan Death Grip to win the race.

The commercial clip is all about Spock, so don’t expect any cameos from Captain Kirk or Hikaru Sulu. It also comes right before the release of "Star Trek into Darkness," which is the sequel to the movie "Star Trek" from 2009.

The insertion of the "Ballad of Bilbo Baggins" is hysterical.  A lot of self-deprication from Nimoy, which gives him 500% more personality than Quinto in this video.  I know they were trying to make the Audi look younger and hipper by their actor associations, but the fact that Nimoy stole the scene with personality made the whole comparison a rather weak argument.
