Blog: Dave LeggettRicky Gervais and Audi A3 US ads

Dave Leggett | 18 March 2014

Comedian Ricky Gervais is fronting ads in US for the new A3 sedan. I quite liked this spot called 'Names' that plays on Gervais' huge presence on Twitter. It also promotes 4G LTE connectivity in the vehicle, which turns the A3 into a WiFi hotspot. Gervais is a 'marmite' kind of guy (UK-speak for polarised views, people love him or hate him and his particular style of humour, not much in between). This is well done.
