Did Brad Pitt Convince Audi To Create An Eco-Friendly Vehicle?

pittWe all know celebrities have influence, but could one of the biggest have convinced automaker Audi to release an environmentally-friendly vehicle? While that would make us question if these guys had their heads in the sand for the past couple years, there may be some truth to the rumor.

Apparently, Brad Pitt was approached by Audi to drive one of their vehicles to the premiere of Ocean’s 13. He said he would consider the offer if the company had a hybrid SUV he could use. They said no, and Pitt instead showed up in BMW’s Hydrogen 7. According to the source, that made such an impact on company execs that they sped up production of their new Audi Q7 V6 3.0 TDI, which features an ultralow-emissions diesel engine. Not entirely dark green, but a step in the right direction.

Obviously, this is all conjecture — and we’re pretty sure there isn’t going to be a Pitt Special Edition Audi showing up anytime soon. Still, if the red carpet is in fact turning a bit greener, it’s probably in luxury automakers’ best interests to supply some earth-friendly options. Famous faces sell green cars. Just ask Toyota.

Please do substitute beef for beans, but also have tofu instead of turkey, carrots instead of chicken, and I think you see where I’m going.

Guys, extortion isn’t an effective form of vegan advocacy

Assuming we can extort people into respecting the lives of others makes no sense.
