Audi, "The Chase"

Action star Jason Statham jumps forward in time in a car chase that takes him from one decade's getaway vehicle to another. (How do you shoot this commercial and not use Back to the Future's DeLorean?) Some funny period touches, and amid most commercials' emotional appeals and the feeling-the-economy zeitgeist, it's nice to see a spot that just says, This car is fast as hell.
