Schande auf Audi

2012 Audi A6 Avant "internal communication" on YouTube?
2011 Chrysler 200 ad from Super Bowl XLV.

No subtlety here. It's a total rip off. Guess imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Same riff, same imagery, same angles. Audi says the video is not an ad? Good luck in court.

UPDATE: Audi has gracefully admitted its error and settled with Detroit rapper, Eminem over the sound-alike track used in this Audi A6 Avant video. The offending track was created from an unauthorized sample of Eminem's Oscar award winning "Lose Yourself" song used in the Chrysler 200 commercial. One of the terms of the out-of-court agreement was that Audi would support specific Detroit-area charities.
