Advert: Audi Sport – Going Home
Music: Gina Kushka – Homeward Bound (Simon & Garfunkel cover)
Audi shows off its sport range, including the R8 Spyder and TT RS, in this TV ad, which highlights the fact that the cars are just as much at home on the road as on the track. The ad marrieds Top Gear-style visuals with a very un-Top Gear-style music track. The track is a cover version of Simon and Garfunkel’s Homeward Bound, performed for the ad by the Cape Town-born, London-based singer Gina Kushka. The song was originally released in 1966, after apparently being written by Paul Simon on the platform of Widnes railway station. Gina Kushka has said she intends to release a full version of her cover – watch this space. In the meantime, you can download the Simon & Garfunkel original on iTunes.
