Hi guys-
I just saw a new commercial for the Mercedes G500 and I thought it was hilarious. Its starts out like the BMW X5 commercial where the three guys are in the crash test building, the G500 takes off and, just as you think it is going to hit the wall, it goes through the crash wall, through the wall behind it, through the office behind the crash room and through the concrete wall of the entire complex, coming out unscratched. I thought it wa hilarious. Anyone else see this? I saw it during ER.

Re: Mercedes G-Wagen Commercial (Busta J)

well, as you most know the G****ndewagen started out in military service...and they brought it to the consumer market, like the Hummer...but not as big. It is no-doubt tough as bollocks. Thing has THREE (count em!) differentials...
Saw one at Concord Mills...beeeeeyoootiful. I love how its not aerodynamic or clad in plastic. its a real boxy SUV, the way they should be.

G-Wagen is such an unique vehicle in a niche segment that doesn't need to advertise. It resides in a market segment that not everyone can't afford, the same goes for LX470 and Range Rover.

I love that Mercedes commercial!
"Hey! What are you guys doing in there"
That guy looks really pissed off too. That's my favorite part.

I'm gonna buy one.
I'm not going to bother stopping for red lights, stop signs, traffic jams...
Honest to god though... if cars look safe... drivers stop driving safe. There's no consiquences to being a moron.

Has anyone else noticed how the G-Wagen's door, window frame and mirror shake and quiver after she slams it closed?

Jersey.....for those that care he was behind that "Say my Name" song by Destiny's Child....not my bag but a nice guy though.

Ah, the G-Wagen. I saw a few today, since they've been out for a while in Costa Rica. They definately have a presence that's hard to match by any vehicle. The things look like a bank vault on wheels (which is good) and hopefully if and when its updated/replaced, this look won't be scrapped for Mercedes' more swoopy present designs. Intimidating isn't the word!

It will be around for some time to come, Mercedes-Benz still has orders (I think until 2007) from different armies.

Right on. There are just certain cars that can be produced for decades, and the longer they're around, the better they are.
