Audi has just released a new commercial fit for a Star Trek storyline – oh, wait, they did in the movie a few years ago. Anyway, old Spock and new Spock have collided once again, and the stakes are considerably lower.
Old Spock (Leonard Nimoy) and Young Spock (Zachary Quinto, who is currently holding down the role) match wits in chess before heading off to the golf course, in a race to see who has to pay for lunch. Young Spock takes off in his sweet Audi, and Old Spock takes off in his less sweet (but still pretty sweet) Mercedes. Anyway, the implication is that Audis are really awesome, driven home by the fact that Old Spock gets emotionally compromised at his ride with staggering quickness.
On a slightly unrelated note, this would be a good time to also mention that Quinto’s second go as Spock, Star Trek Into Darkness drops on May 16 in the United States.
