Mercedes is coming out with a new small van called the Vito, and it felt that the best way to advertise this was with an automotive based “birds and the bees” commercial. I feel very confused. Confused and a little dirty, actually; I think I need a shower…

The commercial starts out with some music courtesy of Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes, and what follows next is a combination of interpretive automotive dancing and some rather obvious innuendos. The result is a little shaking, a little rocking, a dash of penetration, and then finally we get a new small van.

I get that Mercedes was trying to highlight its performance car and heavy trucking sides have come together to create a new capable, but fun cargo hauler; I just think they could have found a better way to get the point across.
