With Star Trek Into Darkness release date being moved up according to LA Times, it was only a matter of time before the pop culture references made their way into yet another car commercial. Considering that most sci-fi films often are cross-promoted in high-tech commercials for car brands, Audi’s latest commercial featuring Leonard Nimoy (the original Spock) and his next generation predecessor, Zachary Quinto is perfect for promoting the film in a subtle (but not so subtle) context.
There isn’t exactly any mentions of the new Star Trek film, but fans of the franchise will surely revel in the witty competition of oldschool Spock vs. newschool spock.
Watch the Audi Commercial below. Does it satifisy your nerdism? It’s got Nimoy cussing…yeah, that works for me. 🙂
