Audi “The Challenge” Commercial – Leonard Nimoy & Zachary Quinto

by Master Pillow

Last Trek commercial I saw that had me smiling was this one featuring William Shatner and his long-time nemesis the rubber suit Gorn hawking the new Star Trek video game.  This time around we’ve got Leonard Nimoy and Zachary Quinto trying to sell…Audi cars.  Okay, I’m not exactly “getting” the connection between Star Trek and Audi automobiles but whatever.  Nevertheless, Trek fans should get a real hoot out of this one which features Nimoy swearing and singing his “famous” song the, “Ballad of Bilbo Baggins.”

In other news…why are Nimoy and Quinto together in the same commercial?  There’s only one real reason which I’m not saying but I have to figure most Trek fans will have already figured it out by now.  Oh yeah, Star Trek Into Darkness is only about a week away here in Canada and the USA although some lucky countries get it this weekend.  Just remember that the release date has been moved up a day in Canada and the USA from May 17 to May 16 due to IMAX ticket sale demand.

Audi “The Challenge” Commerical – Leonard Nimoy & Zachary Quinto

In case anyone really needs to see it, here’s the original video of Nimoy singing his Bilbo song which surely ranks up there with Shatner’s, “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.”
