German carmaker Audi has decided to show their Super Bowl ad early by posting their humorous 60-second commercial for the all-new Audi A3 on YouTube. Most of the full minute spot, which will air during the first in-game break after the 3rd quarter kickoff, features not the car itself, but an unusual dog.
Titled “Doberhuahua”, the spot follows a young couple on their hunt for the perfect dog, and after not being able to decide between a small Chihuahua and a big Doberman Pinscher, are convinced to compromise with a blend of the two. The disastrous result is the mayhem producing Doberhuahua, leading the spot to finish with the tag “Compromise scares us too.”
Audi does eventually show off the A3 during the last 10 seconds of the commercial, but the highlight of the minute long ad is the Sarah McLachlan cameo in which she spoofs her own famous animal rights PSA.
