NEW YORK -- German luxury brand Audi is a refreshing change from what most of the news in the auto business has been about lately.

In this eight-minute video, Audi America CMO Scott Keogh recaps the company's strategies at the same time he wags his finger at what he portrays as the hopelessly bland marketing of U.S. domestic automakers.
