Audi Spock vs Spock Challenge

Audi USA is running “Zachary Quinto vs. Leonard Nimoy: The Challenge”, a television commercial pitting the two actors known for playing Mr Spock in Star Trek films. Zachary Quinto, driving the new Audi S7, takes on Leonard Nimoy in the Mercedes Benz CLS 550, in a race to their local golf course. Quinto wins by having more trunk space, the use of Google Maps in the car’s navigation system. Nimoy, however, gets the final say with the Vulcan nerve pinch.

Nimoy sings a new rendition of the classic “The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins”, a song which he sang in 1967 for Malibu U, a variety show, and on “Two Sides of Leonard Nimoy”, the second of Nimoy’s albums on Dot Records.


The Spock vs Spock Challenge was written and directed by comedy team Paul W. Downs & Lucia Aniello, also known as Paulilu Productions, and produced by PMK*BNC by executive producer Joseph Assad.
