Do Your Part: Buy an Audi, Drive Fast

9:31 AM PDT on October 8, 2009

Today was International Walk to School Day, and according to this Audi commercial, if you participated you're a big loser.

In all seriousness, this has to be one of the most obnoxious spots we've featured
on Streetsblog. Basically, per Audi: If you take transit, you're a
glutton for punishment; if you ride a bike, you're a hapless weenie.

But
Audi owners? They're just like you: "trying to do their part" for the
environment. Only they do it by driving a $30,000, fossil fuel-burning,
CO2-emitting private automobile. Though it is "clean diesel" -- you can
pretty much drink that stuff, right?

And judging by how
the A3 is portrayed zipping along a curvy mountain road, leaving lesser
vehicles in its wake, you'd best stay out of the way while Audi drivers
go about saving the planet. Weenie.
