The Audi vs BMW billboard war is legendary and some say Audi won that war so when Audi South Africa spotted Mercedes-Benz SA using a Q7 as a camera vehicle, they couldn’t help themselves:
Spotted! @MercedesBenz_SA shooting their next TV commercial…using an Audi Q7. Looks like our friends really do believe in the #BestOrNothing. pic.twitter.com/WSYnYlXZ3N

Mercedes-Benz SA wasn’t the type to take that lying down so they counter attacked and threw an ad in for good measure:
Nice try @AudiSouthAfrica, but there’s a reason we’re always the main attraction. #TheBestOrNothing pic.twitter.com/ucZhT9O48j
