Captain Ahab is Back, And He's Still Hunting for the Audi

Venables Bell & Partners Returns With 'Moby Dick' Reimagined

Published on

Editor's Pick

Early last year, Venables Bell & Partners introduced us to Audi's version of Moby Dick's "Captain Ahab," who embarked on a long hunt for the whale after it took a bite out of leg and destroyed his ship. The whale, however, was replaced by the Audi Quattro.

Now, the hunt continues with "Ahab Redux," a decidedly funnier spot (the drawn out "Quattroooo" at the end is definitely giggle-worthy) that follows a similar tack. This time, the tormented tow truck driver is convinced that the Audi Quattro is "still out there," and is flabbergasted when it rushes past him, just out of his reach. Tom and Charlie Guard, aka The Guard Brothers, direct out of Smuggler.
