Not a good portrayal

Has anyone seen this load of crap? Just saw an Audi commercial on TV tonight so I Googled it.

Whoever came up with this commercial should have consulted the RC world. This makes the drone/multirotor look pretty dangerous and scary.

Check it out.

I know the premise they were going after, but wow!

Re: Not a good portrayal

I found it entertaining. They did a good job at making you remember Audi. All CG, of course. A modern day "Birds".

Re: Not a good portrayal

Audi's marketing team (be it internal or external) is probably finding it hard to pat themselves hard enough on their collective backs after that.

Might as well enjoy it because they're going to treat your complaints like this:

I didn't think it was that big of a deal. Nothing that would impact the hobby.

Re: Not a good portrayal

Looks like the paparazzi at an outdoor Academy Awards ceremony. The guy in the Audi looked a lot like Charlie Sheen to me. Drunk and speeding...AGAIN. Even the drones have had enough of that freak'in guy!! You gotta love smart technology.

Re: Not a good portrayal

Awesome commercial, actually quite creative. It also works as now it is being posted all over the place, like this forum for example.

Re: Not a good portrayal

That is amazing/funny. This is a Alfred Hitchcock 'The Birds' parody, making fun of people who fear new technology. Getting mad over this would be silly.
