Audi A5 Commercial Description

Spring 2012 tv ad for the Audi A5 featuring the “Jaray Audi” concept car, which was a concept car designed by Paul Jaray. The commercial is set in the 1920s, with the car driving around town and people are looking at it, hating it because it doesn’t look like any other cars at the time. The concept Audi car is ahead of it’s time, sleek and aerodynamic. To these people, set in the depression era, it probably looked like a spaceship.

At one point, we see the car appear to look at it’s reflection in a pond, and it’s weird because I genuinely felt sad for the car when I watched it. But luckily, eventually the ugly duckling turned into a beautiful swan, the new Audi A5.
