Audi Saves Trick-or-Treaters’ Lives

Is there any bigger Halloween buzzkill than running over trick-or-treaters with your luxury automobile? Not only does it take a toll on your conscience, but the necessary repair work can run a high bill, especially if you’re driving an imported specialty vehicle.

With the Audi A6′s thermal imaging and night vision assistant technology, the holiday revelry doesn’t have to end on the way from the bar to the afterparty. The above spot, created by AKQA, reminds drivers of the 41 million little monsters on the roads this year (not to mention their accompanying parents, who make for slightly larger but equally frightening monsters). As we’ve been told, the technology, which can detect pedestrians up to 300 feet away, is displayed in the spot with no special effects added.
