Audi's "Smart Performer" spot racked up views this week with the assistance of Emmy award winner Claire Danes. In the spot, created by Mediacom, the viewer follows two parallel strands of Danes' life split by one choice: Whether or not to drive an Audi. When she does, she has pleasant time driving through gorgeous farmland scenery and stopping to play with puppies. When she doesn't, she ends up in jail. It's not all emotional appeal, though. Danes closes with a nod to practicality, saying she drove "almost 700 miles on a single tank." "Smart Performer" enters our weekly list of the top 10 auto viral videos at No. 2, with 1,808,653 views.
Also new this week is Volkswagen's "Feeling Carefree" ad, ranked sixth by Visible Measures with 405,936 views.
