Even 4-time world champions have got their sweet spots. The commercial for the new Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupé shows the human side of the fabulous Formula One driver, Lewis Hamilton.
The Brit shows up stuffing a few stuffed animals in his car, a Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupé. A giant Teddy bear, an ostrich and a mammoth find room in his blue GT. Lewis is careful to fasten their seatbelts before starting off.
The Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport driver s heading to a party and the mom of the birthday girl texts him to remind him that it starts at 3 p.m. and to make sure he’s got everything. But before hitting the party, the pro driver has a race to attend. So his stuffed animals are coming with him to the racetrack.
Once he hits the S mode, his car flashes into the first turn and flies along the straight seemingly barely touching the tarmac. The plush toys move around uncontrollably. When Lewis checks the IWC watch in the dashboard, it already shows 13 minutes to 3. So he leaves the signs to his rival drivers that he’s got to go and off he goes. He parks his 4-door Coupé in the driveway and carries the stuffed animals to the door. The car got him there on time, so all kids are happy.
The commercial ends with the motto “Built for your most important race: Life”. He can’t leave the party though without taking the kids for a ride. So the final images show them all properly fitted in their child car seats and Lewis Hamilton pushing the engine start/stop button.
