Bowie Starman Audi A8

The late rock star's iconic track is being used for an Audi R8 advert.

David Bowie's Starman has been used in a new Super Bowl advert.

The iconic track features in a promo for the Audi R8, which will be played during the first quarter of the huge sporting event.

The 60-second clip follows an elderly man and former astronaut who is transported to his past life by driving the shiny new car.

OK, so we know it sounds a bit cheesy, but it's difficult not to get emotional about the story with its epic soundtrack. 

Watch the extended 90-second clip below: 

Bowie just made car adverts SO much more bearable.
