Spock Vs. Spock
An amazing ad from Audi: It's not affiliated with the new Star Trek film, but *just happens* to come out the week of release, with two Spocks bantering & battling away.
It's very well done, with lots of in-jokes that I don't get (but the fans on the forums seem to love). It also has a bit of the feel of Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, and that's a good thing too. I'm not sure why they put Leonard Nimoy in a Mercedes (it's an Audi ad, remember), but it's getting serious numbers of views and comments. (According to the AdAge article below it's meant to be a comparison ad, comparing Audi to Mercedes, but this seems a bit odd to me).
In fact it's got nearly 30 times as many as the Damian Lewis Jaguar ad in less than 24 hours, which must say something.
