leonard-nimoy-vs-zachary-quinto-audi-commercial spock vs spock

In a TV spot that deserves to be celebrated as much as a Superbowl commercial, Audi has released this new spot for their car line featuring Leonard Nimoy and Zachary Quinto.

The Spock vs. Spock spot pits both the original and new timeline Vulcans against each other to see who’ll come out victorious in ‘The Challenge’. Whether it’s in chess or who can get to the golf course faster, the end result can only be described as “logical.”

And as an added trivia treat, the song Nimoy  singing in his car is an actual song recorded in the 1960’s titled ‘The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins’ which tells the entire story of ‘The Hobbit.’ Maybe this is a nod to the fact that Benedict Cumberbatch stars in ‘The Hobbit’ trilogy as well as in ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’? Also, make sure you watch until the very end!

This TV spot is a great homage for both classic and new Trekkies to enjoy and ranks right up there with the commercial of the little boy dressed as Darth Vader trying to use the force on his dad’s Volkswagen.
