Audi Does Some Spring Cleaning

Apparently, everyone in this town really reveres the Audi A7. And, what better time to do some cleaning than spring, right guys? LOL, get it? (Wink wink, nudge, nudge.)

“Spring Cleaning” is one of two new spots for Audi from Venables Bell & Partners. Along with “Car Carrier,” which advertises the Audi Q5, these new television ads paint the luxury car company as “Luxury Progressed,” and both do so in a sort of pretentious fashion. Sure, seeing an Audi cruising around your town has definitely become a much more common site as the company continues to take market share away from competitors like Mercedes-Benz and BMW. But, do the two spots really make you want to buy and Audi? Or, do they make you kind of hate Audi drivers that much more? Credits and “Car Carrier” follow after the jump.
