So the audi A5 suicide ad is touring the web still, we've been in touch with Internetworld.de who now changed their article to read "Mystery of suicide spot continues unresolved", whereas before it headlined that "Adland bekennt sich zu Selbstmord-Spot" ("Adland takes credit for the ad" - or words that could be interpreted as such, my German ain't that great). The ad was not created by us, for the record. Just to make that clear.
Meanwhile, Krone.at, Austria's biggest online newspaper, wrote no such thing as their journalist actually (gasp!) did some legwork and contacted both us and Audi before making their article.
We've spoken to Audi Sweden since last week about the ad, they're well aware of it (and that we have it).
The suicide ad world tour has reached most of Europe, and even Australia, here's a few articles on the now world famous spec ad. From what I hear it's even been on TV in Germany - Bild.de had this little report on the ad.
