A month later, this TV Commercial and web based video seems more effective than ever! Especially Willem Dafoe's manicure...

The producers did a nice job of selecting the previously unknown actor featured as the devil's prey... He looks like the kind of 20/30something that COULD be tempted by a deal with the devil... dark circles under his eyes, kind of scrawny, but able to cut a few moves with Usher, etc. Looks like a great break for that actor and I am sure we will see him again... somewhere.

Well Done Mercedes. I also like the fact that they took you to Facebook. 

They also could have done alternate endings on Facebook or Youtube to continue 

the story and ask for Likes or Subscribers. Think About that for your Dealerships.

Have one price, but for even better deals goto

Sympathy for the Devil is one of my all time favorites!  Very cool video!

After viewing this video (extended cut) of the Surprise Mercedes-Benz CLA TV Spot with Willem Dafoe, music by the Rolling Stones and Kate Upton (NOT washing a car) I say it is as much a guaranteed home run as any TV spot I have ever seen. This spot is going to be as powerful as the last generation Cadillac CTS TV spot which had a woman asking "When you turn your car on, does it return the favor?" My hat is off to the MBUSA Marketing Team and the Ad Agency that created this masterpiece of a TV spot... It is the best I have seen in a long while!
