Plot / Description

Surrounded by memories of the Space Age’s golden years, a retired Apollo-era astronaut has lost his zeal for life. But when his son shows up and hands over the keys to the new 205-mph Audi R8 V10 plus, a rocket ride under the stars stirs newfound life within the Commander. It’s a universal reminder that amazing things happen when we choose exploration, technology and the moon

Voiceover

Mr. President, thank you for choosing the moon.  
It's now approaching our lunar sunrise. Oh, this beauty is magnificent. 
This has to be the proudest day of our lives 
Not hungry, huh? 
Is he eating? 
Nope. 
OK, Commander. Come with me.  
Stand by for ten second countdown.  
Roger. Looks great, Houston. 
Sequence start. 
6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.  
Liftoff. We have liftoff. 
 
(Lyrics) There's a starman waiting in the sky 
He'd like to come and meet us 
But he thinks he'd blow our minds 
There's a starman waiting in the sky 
He's told us not to blow it 
'Cause he knows it's all worthwhile 
He told me 
Let the children lose it 
Let the children use it 
Let the children boogie 
 
Starman, waiting in the sky 
He'd like to come and meet us

Written Text

Choosing the moon brings out the best in us.
