Dustin Hoffman does the Graduate run again, for Audi

In a commercial for Audi directed by Michael Bay (Pearl Harbor) Dustin Hoffman is dashing to the United Methodist Church again, just like in 1967's "The Graduate".

This time he stops his daughter's wedding. This is only the second commercial the Hoffman has appeared in, and the advert will air only in Europe.

In the final scenes of The Graduate, Hoffman's character, Benjamin Braddock, pulls Katharine Ross' character, Elaine Robinson, from the church as she's getting married. They fight off parents and guests before riding away in a bus.

In the Audi commercial however, Hoffman again rescues the bride but, this time he returns to a 2005 Audi.
