A long form online video, directed by Craig Gillespie of MJZ, kicks off this “Promote Yourself” campaign for Audi and agency Venables Bell & Partners.

With this piece, like most automotive brands, Audi is launching its summer sales event. Unlike most brands, however, Audi is using an emotional message to recruit new owners this summer. This Freedom short centers on a woman who has just been named employee of the year but that’s not enough as the inner drive to progress leads her to pack up her things, exit the office, and embark on a journey to start her own company. Her aspirations coincide with the Audi owner's constant drive and mindset for progress. For Audi drivers, a promotion isn’t just about a salary bump or a fancy corner office.  It’s bypassing a raise for a better opportunity elsewhere, or trading in that corner office to start a business in their living room. A promotion is about making yourself a little better, backing yourself, and conquering your own Everest. In this case, she’s promoted herself with a new Audi as she embarks on the next chapter in her career.
