Brad Pitt's World War Z is probably the best zombie survival movie ever made. And now there's a car commercial from Audi Germany that's just as good, not to mention twice as funny. It's called "Mechanics" and shows a sea of wannabe repairmen rushing to grab the A5 coupe and "fix it".
If you don't like horror movies (like this story's editor) then once-human monsters running after you while screeching and foaming at the mouth probably still haunts you to this day. The mechanics in the Audi commercial are not dead or foaming anywhere, but they they are frightening.

There's also a sense of "Mad Max" as people smash rusty tow trucks through walls and kick each other in the face. The post-apocalyptic scene is like a ghost town and contrasts sharply with the metallic paint of the Audi and the squeaky-clean car dealership.

Speaking of which, we have to draw a parallel between the sea of mechanics "braking" over Audi's glass wall like waves and the movie scene where zombies rush the Israeli's gigantic wall to get inside and eat everybody. How does Audi get away with this and not get sued for infringement, we will never know.

This big-budget commercial was shot by German ad agency Thjnk and Radical Media director Sebastian Strasser. This is truly big-screen stuff, but anybody who's paid $500 for an "official" oil change will tell you that amateur mechanics aren't as bad as brainless zombies.
