Cape Town - Audi's next-generation RS5 is almost in South Africa, but before then aficionados have to drool over YouTube videos and photographs from motor shows around the world.

Nevertheless, Audi decided to tease the motoring fraternity one more time with another video of its RS5. Only this time, it's as part of a movie set.

The new RS5 is planned to hit SA in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Not 'Finding Nemo'

In the clip the "hero" talks on his cellphone. Suddenly his other phone rings and he makes a dash out of the room; leaving a tied-up girl behind(?). At this point viewers are pretty perplexed as to what is going on. The bloke exits the room and makes his way to the awaiting Audi RS5.

Suddenly someone yells "Cut!" and the director walks out, telling the actor that he wants another take because the movie is a thriller, not "Finding Nemo". The actor, annoyed by the request, says that he thinks the scene went "bloody brilliant" and storms off.

The actor finds his stunt double for a car-chase scene and opts to drive the car himself. Nervous and scared he gets comfortable behind the wheel and then delivers footage even the director was pleased with.

Problem is, now the actor isn't satisfied and wants to do another take. Hmm, maybe just an excuse to drive the RS5 again.

We see what you did there, Audi. Nice.
