Re: Sex and the Mercedes

Nothing like product placement to hopefully bump sales. Although I'm always curious as to how many people really notice. Wonder what that one cost MB?

Here's a good reference to check out MB model placement in film and TV: http://www.imcdb.org/vehicles_make-Mercedes-Benz.html

When I saw the thread title, I thought maybe you were going to post that classic MB advertisement:

Re: Sex and the Mercedes

Don't get me started on M-B commercials. I've posted that one and a dozen others that I consider classics... Check out the first thread in this forum for a few...

There are some great ones out there (like the "dumb blond" in the library.)

I'll have to check your other thread in case I've missed any.

p.s., are you familiar with that Audi ad campaign called "Meet the Beckers".... it's worth watching only in that it does a hilarious job on stereotyping MB owners (the "Commander" as the patriarch of the family.)

Re: Sex and the Mercedes

Nothing like a little placement to get some attention to a new model.

And nothing like a group of club members showing up at the opening of the film in a caravan of Mercedes-Benz's and dealer people too!

Thursday May 27th is coming up soon!
