    Perhaps Mercedes commissioned a few agencies to do a corporate video concept. This video could be a pitch from one of the agencies, hopefully it was rejected. Aside from the obvious bad taste, the video doesn't really seem aligned with Mercedes' brand identity or corporate ethos. It's too cheesy for even Chrysler.

    Mercedes... What a waste of a car company. Just another reason to laugh at someone driving "it". Number one? Please...

    Yes, Leni Riefenstahl would have made something much more persuasive than this drivel... kinda stinks of fascism. Edit: And this after the glowing MB review just posted... hmm!

    GF says this was made to fire up the sales team and has nothing to do with marketing. I didn't make it through the first time. It does get funnier the second time if you have the stomach. Things do not bode well for the auto makers. I had hopes that BMW and Mercedes would not take the last nickel out of quality. After seeing the new Corolla interior, I have nothing but despair for the entire industry. The Chinese will not buy Japanese, and now I see the Europeans have no love for them either. I hope the "Japs" eat them alive. Toyota, do something about the handling and interiors of your cars and redeem yourself.
