When we showed you this year's Audi "Bravery" Super Bowl Ad there was no reference to the nerdy lead character assaulting the prom queen, because it's clear to me from viewing the ad a few times that the prom queen doesn't react in a way that makes me think the creator of the commercial wants us to view her as being attacked.
Surprised? Sure. But how do we know they don't secretly like one another and he hasn't, up until this point, been brave enough to act on it?
