Audi’s Sochi advertisement mocking Olympic rings fail is likely fake

Here I was, thinking that Audi had just rolled out the most incredible impromptu social media ad of all time on Monday, and that someone in the marketing department needed a raise. According to a representative from the company, however, the advertisement that perfectly mocked the Olympic rings fail in Sochi is a fake.

The rep told Mashable, “This is not an official ad […] it is most likely from an Audi fan.”

The good news for the car company is that it still benefited greatly from the graphic, as it spread around Reddit and Twitter like wildfire.
