    Default Whats up with those Lonestar Mercedes commercials?

    Why are they so bad (the new C Class one, douchey looking guy driving around town looks like it was shot with a cell phone camera stops a woman says excuse me he goes sure how bout Saturday night?)? Are they like the Len T Wong commercials... maybe intentionally bad to be memorable?

    I'm surprised MB Canada lets them do it. IMO hurts the brand

    I saw the same one yesterday, in black right? I only got a glance, so I wasn't sure if it was the Merc, Ford or Nissan cargo van. I'd be pretty embarrassed to be pulled over by that thing,.

    Such a shitty commercial. It doesn't even make sense really.

    I'm guessing that someone high up at the dealership (maybe ownership) is letting their niece or nephew who is "hip & cool" produce that commercial on a budget, and man does it show. Having low-rent advertising like that devalues a premium brand.

    I saw them filming another one on Tuesday when I stopped by the dealership, this time in a red SLK.

    I still haven't seen 'em yet, since I mostly watch US TV.

    At least the girl should have jumped in lol. Is that what Mb owners are supposed to do, park in front of a restaurant and get turned down? Should have been a civic and an Mb, show them who's boss. And Also isn't there only 2 dealerships in town? How has she looked "everywhere"?

    Lolol
    You can technically get a ticket for each window that's illegally tinted. So as above, if you're being an ass to the officer (or if he's just an ass to begin with), he can give you two. (or three tickets if you're dumb enough to tint the windshield of your BMW... but if you own a BMW you can't be stupid right?)

    Haha

    Just saw it for the first time, I think it's brilliant. It's so bad that it has people talking = more publicity.

    Royal douchebag that gets shot down while staring at his cell phone like a tool? That commercial would make me think twice about buying a Mercedes. I agree, looks like the Lonestar owner gave his kids a budget to play "make believe" director.

    I can't hit the mute button fast enough. Almost the worst local commercial on TV, Pete the Plumber is #1. And yes, it degrades MB into the Lada zone. Some cheesy porn music might save the MB commercial. Was it shot on an iPhone 6?

    That's such a bland looking car at the end there. The old model is stunning compared to this thing.
