When the commercial came out, my dad asked what's Mercedes's anniversary all about. I answered "Mercedes celebrated its anniversary by getting a wrong plastic suppliers"

No, I think Estus is right. I haven't seen the commercial, but, Joe Mantegna has done M/B commercials before. You're thinking of Chaz Palminteri (who was also in "The Usual Suspects").

actually mercedes should have celebrated its anniversary a while ago...
"The automotive industry is awash in centennials. Oldsmobile started in three years ago. Indian Motorcycle Company's is this year. Cadillac will be 100 next year. Ford and Harley-Davidson will have theirs in 2003.
Daimler Benz had its big celebration 15 years ago..."- European Car Dec. 2001
the rest of the article goes on to tell about a meet in europe where Mercedes from across the years showed up. Grad Prix cars to DTM's to passenger cars.

YOu´re right, and you´re not. Karl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler both built their first car in 1886. Their companies later merged to Daimler-Benz in 1926.
But Daimler named their first car Mercedes in 1901. So the car brand Mercedes celebrates in 100 years this year.
