Back in March, director Kevin Smith announced his first wave of actors for Mallrats 2 by releasing a photo of himself alongside Jason Mewes, Stan Lee and Michael Rooker. The filmmaker revealed that they had all gathered to shoot an "adorable Stan-centric spot for Audi that you'll see online as we get closer to the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron". Today, Audi has released the full two-minute ad, directed by and starring Kevin Smith, which shows Stan Lee passing on his secrets to success in cameo acting with Tara Reid, Michael Rooker, Jason Mewes and Lou Ferrigno.
While the ad doesn't feature any stars of Avengers: Age of Ultron, it does mention the Marvel adventure several times. Stan Lee is seen riding in the new Audi S8, and while this particular car won't be featured in the movie, it will include the new R8, driven by Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.). The sequel will also feature Audi's 2015 TTS and 2015 A3. The R8, which made its initial debut in Iron Man, returns as an even more powerful supercar, while the iconic Audi TTS will make its big screen debut as a completely redesigned coupe.
For Mallrats fans, you'll notice that Michael Rooker is eating a familiar snack in one brief scene. The video also includes a brief montage of Stan Lee's beloved Marvel cameos. Which one is your favorite? Take a look at this two-minute ad below, and chime in with your thoughts.
