Audi A8 – Escape


Audi showcase some of their A8 cars luxury features in a very creative way with this brand new Escape TV advert, which shows a man hiding from a gang in the back of an Audi A8 L. After getting involved in a rather epic fight scene, the martial arts actor slips into the back of a parked car to evade a huge gang member. There he’s pleasantly surprised to discover that the Audi not only keeps him out of sight, it also provides luxurious and relaxing technology like a reclining seat, TV screen and even a foot massager.

Audi Advert Music 2018
Music: Easy. Artists: The Commodores.

The relaxing song the guy listens to on the Audi’s sound system is Easy by The Commodores. With singer-songwriter and musician Lionel Richie on lead vocals, Easy was taken from the group’s self-titled fifth studio album, which was released in 1977. The single reached number 9 here in Britain and number 4 on the US Billboard Hot 100. Audi adverts have recently been featuring cover versions of songs recorded especially for the campaign, but this ad bucks that trend by opting to play the original. This is likely due to the soundtrack being less prominent this time around and, let’s face it, you couldn’t really top Lionel Richie’s original vocals.

The 90-second Extended Cut version of this Audi A8 Technology – Escape TV advert was published to Audi UK’s YouTube page on 16 August, 2018. We’re not currently aware of the martial arts actors name who stars in this commercial, but we’ll update this page when we get more details.
