"Driver"
Audi pump the brakes on driverless cars in this commercial set in the near future. Weary of life in the passenger seat, David regales his AI assistant - Clara - with his motoring history. The cars and company may change, but there's one common thread: he was behind the wheel. Despite his chauffeur-bot's best efforts, David can't resist the real thing.
