Watch: Audi’s R8 commander Super Bowl commercial

Sunday February 7th, 2016

Audi is trying to appeal to the inner-astronaut in all of us.

The car company’s Super Bowl commercial featured a retired astronaut finally feeling the thrill of space again after driving his son’s Audi R8 V10 plus. 

Next year Audi should get a real astronaut, or at least someone who once played an astronaut in a movie.
