The Drones take over

You need not fear though, Audi is here.

What do you do when you’re a company like Audi, trying to infuse technology in its products while dealing with an audience that may or may not be harboring Luddite-esque feelings about the way the world is evolving? U.S. agency Venables Bell & Partners has created a spot that shows, no matter how many delivery drones (here’s looking at you Amazon) are waiting to swoop in, that technology can still be your friend. With plenty of references to the classicĀ The Birds, workers in the spot bolt from their office and run across the parking lot as the drones swoop in from overhead. The only person safe is our handsome hero as he gets into his Audi A6 and uses its built-in tech features to escape his pursuers. You see, technology isn’t always something to be feared.
