Audi uses Bowie’s ‘Starman’ in space-themed Super Bowl campaign

The ad, called ‘The Commander’, promotes Audi’s R8 supercar, which the car marque claims is its most powerful car ever with a top speed of 205 miles per hour. Created by Venables Bell & Gillespie, the ad will run in the first quarter of the game on Sunday (7 February).
