Though most of you have probably seen this ad, I couldn’t let it go by without posting about it. The Audi R8 was aired during one of the world’s most viewed sports events, the Superbowl XLII, and it reproduces one of the most famous movie scenes in history, from “The Godfather I” movie.

In the original scene, successfull Hollywood producer Jack Woltz (played by John Marley) wakes up to find his horse’s (Khartoum) head on his bed. In the Audi R8 ad, we have the same scene, only this time we have Alex Rocco (which played Moe Greene in the original movie), waking up to find his bed full of oil and the front part of what it looks like a Rolls Royce.

And then we have Audi’s warning: “Old luxury just got put on notice”. Overall, an interesting commercial. Not one of the best, but definetly a cool one.
