Audi Christmas Commercial – Feat. Santa in Grey Suit Driving Electric Audi RS e-tron GT

Audi presents Santa as a fancy old man, who drives the fully electric Audi RS e-tron GT, in its Christmas commercial.

The 60-second spot opens with the man, clad in a grey suit accessorized with a red tie, standing in a very modern living room with a view to the Northern Lights, being announced by a younger man that “it’s time”. The latter, who seems to be his personal assistant, leads him to a highly secured parking lot, where his new sleigh awaits him – it’s actually the fully electric Audi RS e-tron GT. The man, who it turns out to be Santa, is thus welcome to the future, where there are no reindeer anymore, but only this car. With gifts placed in the spacious trunk, Santa hits the road through the night.

“Season’s greetings from Audi. The fully electric Audi RS e-tron GT” onscreen lines read at the end of the commercial, alongside the #FutureIsAnAttitude hashtag.

The German automaker has also enlisted Janelle Monáe to promote its RS e-tron GT. The Oscar-nominated actor and brand ambassador stars in a short film for the EV, highlighting its vast features of the Audi RS e-tron GT, as well as the automaker’s ethos of striving for more, striving for adventure and refusing to settle. Janelle leaves her office and metronome and gets at the wheel of her Audi RS e-tron GT, all while asking herself a series of questions. The end of the ad sees her parking the car in a spacious lot and explaining that, with Audi, you will never have to sacrifice one good thing for another because Audi drivers do not have to choose, they can have it all.
