D+ is way too kind.  

I saw this commercial as (yet) another example showing that women/girls have to be forced into physical contact in order to enjoy it while the men/boys in their lives must violently protect their virtue.  I don't see how a forced kiss is any different from a forced grope.  (The truth is, women really don't need to be forced into discovering pleasure.)

The Audi commercial could have done so much better simply by allowing the girl to see the boy in his new-found confidence and come to him or at least, noticeably desire him.  This commercial hit the creepy/stalky/sexist nail on the head.

Amen. Totally agree. As he approached the girl, I thought we might be working up the nerve to ask her for a dance.

Instead, he assaults. The message I got from this is that driving an Audi will transform a boy into a full-grown creep.
