Ready For a Road Trip? Audi Will Take You to Australia

Cabin fever has set in for many of us since being quarantined for the last several weeks. Coloring pages, virtual museum tours have helped but not totally. So, Audi’s Australian marketing agency decided to take this as an opportunity to lift people’s spirits by posting a 4-hour long video on youtube of a beautiful relaxing drive along the coast of Australia, as well as many other beautiful sights to enjoy from the comfort of your living room.

Taking a long drive is a way of decompressing for a lot of people. Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, however, people all over the world have strict orders to stay at home. This video is a thoughtful substitute for those that long to get out on the road and just drive.

The video merely consists of a driver driving the Audi A6 sedan throughout Australia, with occasional stoplights, and even some light rain. The camera point of view switches a couple of times from behind the driver’s seat, to facing out of a side window.

“During this difficult time for many of us, Audi wanted to create an innovative way of bringing the iconic Australian road trip to people in their homes. ‘The Drive’ is a digital concept that allows customers to experience the pleasure of the open road from the confines of their home, and to hopefully offer Australians some tranquility and mental well-being during these uncertain and unsettling times.”

Nikki Warburton, Chief Marketing Officer at Audi Australia

The video has relaxing background music throughout the entirety of the four-hour timeframe. Viewers won’t experience any narration or advertising—just a simple escape for those that miss the open road.
