“Don’t Try This at Home”. This is the title of the first Mercedes C-Class Coupe spot airing in the U.S. right now. And it pretty much sums it all. Flying and literally crashing the barriers. The video is mouth watering.
What better way to promote a rolling piece of art like the new Mercedes C-Class Coupe than really show the public (including the rivalling brands’ loyalists) what it is truly capable of. But, take it with a grain of salt…
Mercedes-Benz USA went one step too far and thought that raising the bar and crushing it should be depicted just as described. Suspend your disbelief for a second, will you?
“The C-Class Coupe doesn’t just raise the bar, it completely crushes it”. Indeed it does. The tv ad show the bullet silver coupe defying a solid steel beam: first by using it as a trambuline and plunging a few feet into the air, then by running straight through it and break it to pieces without a single scratch. Clearly, don’t try this at home and expect to walk away unharmed.
