Second Place Spidey

by Syd Briscoe

Audi: “Science Fair” - 3 mins 11s

Audi have a super new spokesperson for their e-tron GT concept car... literally. Peter Parker and buddy Ned Leeds (Tom Holland and Jacob Batalon) are perturbed by their lacklustre offering at a school science fair - but luckily Spider-Man has a few favours to call in for an electrical upgrade.

It's an agreeably shot piece, elevated by Holland and Batalon's performances as an awkward high-schooler and secret superhero dynamic duo. While the product explanation is necessarily heavy handed, the film's self-aware humour allows it to feel like another joke rather than something tacked on. Skilful work from director Eric Appel.
