The first time I saw it (during the game) I was really pissed that Audi had this boy just walk up to a random chick and kiss her w/out permission or any indication that she knew him. The second time I watched it I was less upset she smiled indicting that she was ok with what happened and such but it still doesn't sit well with me. I really wish they would have had her smile when she turned to face him instead she looks confused and her shoulders get all stiff when he kisses her. idk maybe I am being overly critical. It just seemed forceful and really awkward. I was really surprised by how many people called it the best commercial of the night.

I thought it was cute. 

To those who think it antifeminist or whatnot, I have only this to say:      :tongue6:

I'm glad that I'm not the only one who didn't like it very much. To me it seems to promote the kind of aggressive male stupidity which I'm not too fond of.

I did not give a fuck about it one way or another. It irritates me a tiny bit that it was a car commercial that had nothing to do with cars, but I don't really think it was cute and I don't really think it was any more offensive than anything else on the television. Less, than some things.

It's full of male ego for sure...If it had been me he spun around and kissed I probably would of decked him. 
((and that 'girl' looked at least in her twenties))

Maybe she was held back a few grades? If she was rather stupid, that might explain her slow reaction time, as well.

awesome commercial that gives this simple truth: Be Brave. Be Bold.
