Cool Videos: Zachary Quinto challenges Leonard Nimoy in this hilarious Trek themed Audi commercial

05.07.2013

Fascinating. For some reason, I am intrigued by the friendship off screen between actors Zachary Quinto and Leonard Nimoy. Despite a huge age gap between them, the two men who have been Spock have reportedly become close friends in real life. With STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS opening next week, there is a prime opportunity to capitalize on these two men and their shared iconic role.

This new Audi commercial has both Nimoy and Quinto using their vehicles to place a friendly wager for lunch and a round of golf. What proceeds is a series of great STAR TREK inside jokes and some hilarious references to Nimoy's musical career. Watch this and I defy you not to laugh.

Between this ad and the William Shatner vs Gorn commercial for the STAR TREK video game, there is no shortage of awesome old school TREK references.

STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS opens May 16, 2013.

What a great commercial. My favourite part was when Leonard was reciting The Hobbit in the car.

Love Joe Carnahan's The Ticker from that series. I think I just might prefer Clive Owen to Jason Statham as the Transporter

@sayahh: Yeah, technically a spoiler, but hardly a surprise. About 90% of the evidence pointed toward him being Gary Mitchell.

Way to spoil it. I'm sure your friend went through a lot of trouble but JJ Abrams wanted to keep it a secret so ppl could go into it fresh, like the old days before the internet and trailers that showed the entire plot.

*cough cough cough* "I have been...and always shall be...your friend"*cough cough*

I really love how Nimoy did a 180 and has come to really embrace the role, when at first he (understandably) wished to distance himself from it. The chemistry between him and Quinto here can't be faked!
