Damn, what an ad!
Car commercials are oftentimes overly pretentious and not very fun to watch. This new Porsche ad, titled “Compete,” is not one of those obnoxious examples. In fact, it’s pretty damn incredible. The premise is that the 911 only competes with itself, and to show greatness fighting greatness the automaker enlisted two sports stars and a chess ace. Tennis star Maria Sharapova, boxing legend Muhammad Ali and 25-year-old chess grandmaster Magnus Carlsen all face themselves in this spot.
Basically, they play their clones. It may sound odd but it’s really damn cool and drives Porsche’s point home expertly. In our opinion it’s one of the best car ads of the year. Check it out and let us know what you think in the comments.
