The Super Bowl ads are going from teasers to full spots with this Audi Doberehuahua commercial making its debut. I did not make a typo. It’s really about a dog called the Doberhuahua.
Things start innocently enough with a couple trying to figure out what kind of dog they’d like to take home. The guy is thinking of a little Chihuahua while the woman has fallen in love with a great, big Doberman. What to do?
The store clerk gives them the brilliant suggestion of breeding the two together to create the perfect breed, and cue the crazy. Next thing you know there’s a woman walking down the street with a Doberhuahua in her purse. It’s a tiny little thing, except for its head which is still Doberman sized. It’s freaky.
It’s also a little poorly behaved as it tries to bite a random passerby. We then get to see the breed make it into a dog show where it attacks the announcers and in a touching moment with Sarah McLachlan that ends with it biting the neck of her guitar.
Doberhuahuas are now running unchecked through the streets, attacking kids on their bikes and terrifying everyone. It’s the apocalypse, with freaky little dogs instead of zombies. And what does this have to do with cars, specifically Audi?
It’ all about compromise.
The moral of the Doberhuahua tale is that compromise is scary and it scares Audi, too, which is why they designed the all-new Audi A3 without compromise. It all ends happily ever after with the couple choosing a different dog, the Doberhuahua being nothing more than a nightmare, and the couple driving off in their shiny red Audi A3.
I’m not sure it makes me want to buy a car, but it definitely does not make me want to buy a dog.
And here’s our Doberhuahua-free mashup review of the 2012 Audi A3 TDI and the KIA Forte SX…
Nicole Wakelin fell in love with cars as a teenager when she got to go for a ride in a Ferrari. It was red and it was fast and that was all that mattered. Game over. She considers things a bit more carefully now, but still has a weakness for fast, beautiful cars. Nicole also writes for NerdApproved and GeekMom.
