Compliments - New Mercedes TV spot with Nico Rosberg, Michael Schumacher and Mika Häkkinen
Mercedes-Benz is kicking off the 2011 Formula 1 season with a new Silver
Arrow and also with a new TV spot. Based around the motto "Racing is a
state of mind", the short film entitled "Compliments" depicts the passion
of Mercedes-Benz for motorsport and competition. With a touch of humour and
self-deprecation, Nico Rosberg and Michael Schumacher play on their
internal rivalry within MERCEDES GP PETRONAS team. Former world champion
Mika Häkkinen -- an iconic figure who has appeared numerous times in
humorous Mercedes-Benz TV spots over the past 15 years -- highlights, with
the aid of an energy drink, on which team the rivalry should be focused at
the start of the season.
"The new Formula 1 season gets under way on Sunday with the race in
Melbourne, and the deck has been shuffled again," explained Anders Sundt
Jensen, Vice President Brand Communication Mercedes-Benz Cars. "The spot
makes it clear, in a rather fun way, that motorsport is a way of life for
our brand. In addition, it shows that we don't admit defeat if at first we
don't achieve the goals we have set ourselves, but rather that we take up
the challenge -- both within our team, as well as united against our

German broadcasters from tonight until Sunday to mark the start of the
Formula 1 season.

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG sound - startup & accelerations; 1080p HD
Gijs records a beautiful dark red Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG at a gas station in
Nürburg, Germany. You will see it startup first and then do two
accelerations. You can also see a Nissan GT-R, Porsche 997 turbo S and a Ferrari 458 Italia in this video.
These cars were there for a test from the german automagazine Autobild.
They were also testing a Lexus LFA, Wiesmann GT MF5 and a Lamborghini
LP570-4 Superleggera! Amazing too see all of these cars together (although
you will only see a small part of them in this video). I think the SLS
sounds great! Hope you feel the same. My 100th video is coming up, so
subscribe if you don't want to miss it!
