The latest spot to make our viral video rankings follows the tale of a lone hero bravely making its way in the world.
The unlikely hero is a single teardrop.
In “Tear Drop,” Audi pumps emotion into a scene of a driver speeding down the highway in an RS 7. The driver, seemingly overwrought over the experience, sheds a single tear. It glides down his face and, set against operatic singing, jumps to the car exterior and slowly makes its way back. Just as the spoiler rises, the tear climbs upward, leaping into the air with abandon.
And then unceremoniously slams into a road sign.
Is this Audi’s existential metaphor on the ultimate futility of persistence against forces beyond our control? A parable for the notion that one must leave a part of oneself behind in this speeding world?
