We love a good promotional video. Though sometimes, when one comes out, we’re left a little bored. Cars in front of pretty sunsets. Leggy models prancing about in front of them. It’s all a bit cliche. Thankfully though, Audi does things a bit differently. As can be seen here, in this video featuring the Audi RS6 Avant.

Look at Ben’s happy little face…

The premise was simple: take one very fast car, one very fast man in the form of Ben ‘The Stig’ Collins and another fast (and agile man) in the form of Damien Walters, then have a paint fight. Oh, and film the whole thing, too. Something like that would have to add up to video gold, right? Happy, it did.

Ben and Damien

While the video is indeed stunning, there were some casualties. The car – that some of us would put on our lottery wish list – was a paint-spattered wreck by the end of it. And even a camera was destroyed after Damien managed to get a paint-filled egg through the window of the moving car! A skillful move, but somewhat expensive!

Camera lovers look away

Still, sacrifices are part of the creative process. Plus, when the finished product looks this good, you can forgive a few mishaps. So get on and watch the video. Marvel at the driving skill of Ben. Be envious of the agility possessed by Damien. It’s brain-off, petrol-fueled fun. Enjoy!
