This spot tells the story of two hotel parking valets, one male, one female, vying for the chance to get behind the wheel of an Audi RS 7--except that’s not evident at the outset because the action plays out entirely in reverse. 

Titled “Duel,” the :60 makes its on-air debut tonight during the Trump/Clinton Presidential debate. Audi will run “Duel” during all three Presidential Debates on 9/26, 10/9 and 10/19 on all major channels that will be broadcasting the moderated encounters pitting Clinton against Trump. Earmarkings of the Presidential debate, political campaign trappings and references are sprinkled throughout the commercial.

Ringan Ledwidge of Rattling Stick directed “Duel” for agency Venables Bell & Partners.
