too silly for Merc.. tried to dress it up with identifying the target, but not doing it for me. but at the same time you could use this for a non luxury brand...and I have to admit...I laughed...art direction is good, doesn't fit the brand..nice work though

I think it's appropriate for Mercedes. These 3 ads look classic, chic and gorgeous. Totally in line with their marketing objectives. The chosen palette is subtle and the background is clean.
This ad is far from being avant-gardiste and it's important to understood that this campaign concerns their last innovation, they're not exposing their new cars.

exactly why I chose the screen name I have, I can see through the glass your looking through, its all in particular taste...this "avant guard" isnt the view I would go...i mean there is a plethora ( srry had to use it ) off visual references that could translate faster reaction between intelligence and action that would be beautiful without that "Ballzack/In living Color's Head Detective visual..but hey to each his own.. regardless..nothing but love for ya tommy :-]

For those anchored to a different generation:

I like the simplicity of the creative solution. However, I worked on Mercedes for years and this seems way off target for their brand.

I wish the idea was done for VW or Honda.

Let's hope they have at least picked really expensive shoes for this campaign

Somehow this is very very awkward.

Maybe it needs coordinated release of a series of bobble heads to redeem it. Maybe not.
