Audi S4 vs. Skier... the video.

Thread Starter 

Okay, so obviously the car had to win... but a fun little PR stunt just the same.  Also, the Audi Design skis look amazing...

Yeah, what bindings are those? It is pretty easy to make a custom ski, but custom bindings is another story altogether.

Good Ad, nice to see something that  isn't DUMB DOWN AMERICA.

Very cool video.  That seems like some pretty impressive driving.

 

But I think they should step it up a notch.

 

Audi versus Bode on the Hannenkham.

 

THAT would be worth watching.

Trying to decide which I'd rather see DNF.

The heelpiece at the beginning of the video is quite distinctive...

Am I the only one that thinks this is more of a tire commercial?

 

Looks like a salomon binding on some sort of plate to me.

The Audi was obviously pivoting too much...

 

Cool video, I liked the skis. Look cooler than the Porsche branded Volkls from a few years back.

The tips reminded me of old time Rossi Cut 11.5s.

The course looked mighty flat to me.  Re-run on a real slalom course, then get back to me.

Who could tell?  The video was so over-edited that I couldn't tell what was going on.

 

It would have been interesting to see the un-edited footage, i.e. the actual race.

Well, the skier was tucking the course in a lot of places, not usually something that happens on your typical "technical" course AND the ground was presented as horizontal on several of the shots of the car.

Is it me, or is this video really homoerotic?

 

I mean, the way the driver was smiling and flirting and casting glances over to the skier...the way he jumped out of the car at the end...  I mean, when they shook hands and hugged I thought for sure they were going to smooch.

 

...

Okay, maybe it is just me.
