Social media networks are abuzz with the above ad.
At first glance, it looks like a legitimate ad by Audi, albeit one that adopted the Sochi Olympics opening ceremony mishap that happened when the last ring of the Olympic rings failed to light up properly. There's even a pretty nifty ad copy which states "When four rings is all you need," an overt reference to Audi's logo having only four rings.
However, as soon as the above image began circulating in the cyberspace, Audi came out and said that they "have never made such an ad. It was probably an Audi fan who did it for fun."
Either way, you can't deny that it's a very fun and smart take on the recent faux pas from Sochi.
