I like the idea behind it, but the visual and the copy don't really communicate it very well.

I agree... Why are the letters B I K E highlighted? Mercedes Bike?

Someone payed for this...

Like the night photography though. Would have been a great fit for this project minus the shitty copywriter.

This announcement is another twist over something that has been done over and over again.
Sorry: those nominated to leave the house.

i think it the BIKE is probably suggesting that the road ahead( as per the photograph) is for bikers only!

No the hidden danger is a bike if you actually read the ad it says quite clearly "the blind spot assistant with warning light system". The blind spot assistant has detected a bike in the blind spot and turned on the warning light.
BIKE is hidden in your blind spot but the warning light system has alerted you. I can explain it a few more ways for the poeple who still dont get it.
