Once again, German luxury brand Audi has shelled out some serious Euros for a spot during the biggest annual television spectacle of the year; the Super Bowl. Introducing special, all-new television ads for ‘The Big Game‘, storylines in previous Audi Super Bowl commercials have involved partying vampires and memorable prom nights. The 2014 Audi commercial will promote the 2015 A3 compact by taking a bite out of the notion buyers of premium vehicles need to accept compromise.
For 2014, the Audi Super Bowl spot starts with the contemplation of whether a couple’s decision on a dog could be solved by cross-breeding a Doberman and Chihuahua. Creating the “Doberhuahua“, viewers of the commercial are quickly given an idea to the wacky notion of such an animal. The computer-generated dog appears like Jim Carrey’s dog in 1995 movie “The Mask” during a brief time the four-legged creature wore the magical mask. Adding to the comedic element of the one-minute Audi commercial is the appearance of musician/songwriter Sarah McLachlan. Popular for her serious PSA spots defending against mistreated or neglected animals, McLachlan’s role is played for humorous intend with this commercial for the fictional Doberhuahua.
The lesson Audi wants to convey in this year’s “Doberhuahua” Super Bowl ad is the A3’s ability to combine performance, design and luxury. Scheduled for release in the United States this spring, the Audi A3 starting with the sedan. An Audi A3 cabriolet and A3 TDI Clean Diesel is slated for late 2014. The Audi A3 will be one of the first vehicles in its segment to offer 4G LTE connectivity and will also introduce Audi’s long-touted e-tron technology to the marketplace with an available plug-in hybrid.
This 2014 commercial will not be the first time the A3 will play a starring role in the Audi’s Super Bowl presence. In 2010, Audi dispatched the Green Police in full force aggressively pursuing environmental infractions. Near the end of Audi’s Green Police Super Bowl ad, an Audi A3 TDI Clean Diesel was permitted to proceed through a road checkpoint that held-up so many other vehicles.

Drawing inspiration on the recent vampire television and movie craze, the latest 60-second Audi Super Bowl commercial features the brand’s newest S7 Sportback. Though the ad features an exclusive cast of vampires, these Audi luxury car TV spot have not be the blood-like elixir fans of the myriad of romantic drama-based vampire flicks will enjoy.
Capturing the modern vampire depiction as young and stylish rather than the legendary Dracula, this latest Super Bowl advertisement has the popular nocturnal creatures partying in the woods around a bonfire. As the crowd of vampires celebrate in the darkness, one of their comrades was rushing to the party in the five-door coupe. Showing up with the vampire’s equivalent of a keg of beer (a cooler of blood), the 2013 Audi S7 Sportback illuminates the night with its available LED headlamps. Serving as one of the more recognizable features obtainable on Audi vehicles, the LED headlights are not only four times more efficient than convention halogen light but project a much higher intensity of white light. As the vampire drives his S7 Sportback to the ‘blood-sucker’s’ social gathering, the pure white light energy from the Audi S7 Sportback (an innovation that helped Audi win the 2010 and 2011 Le Mans 24-Hour race) resulted in a side-effect from the partying clan. Once arriving at his destination, the vampire driving his Audi S7 Sportback unknowingly brought a plague to forest. The bright light of the S7 Sportback’s LED headlamps destroyed almost every vampire around the bonfire.
The 2012 commercial isn’t the not time Audi has attempted to poke fun at pop culture signatures. In 2009, the automaker make light of the culture trend that made words like “Going Green: and “Carbon Footprint” a nemesis to many automobile fans.
In the commercial that ran during Super Bowl 44, Audi rose against a fictional force of near draconian environmentalist. The advertisement depicted an environmentally friendly world radically enforced by a large and forceful squad called the “Green Police”. To the musical background of a rerecorded version of the Cheap Trick classic “Dream Police”, the Green Police aggressively carried out arrests of people deemed to be making decisions harmful to the environment. At the end of the 2010 Super Bowl commercial, a Green Police member at a highway checkpoint observed the German luxury brand’s newest Audi A3 TDI Clean Diesel. Satisfied with the clean diesel powerplant, the Audi A3 TDI was allowed to proceed.
The 2012 Super Bowl advertisement is the 5th year that Audi has provided a car commercial during the most-watched annual sporting event on television. Since launching this promotion during an American football broadcast, their objective has always been to break into the lucrative United States premium car market. Achieving record sales in 2011, Audi has shown a winning ability to score touchdowns in the marketplace.
