Willem Dafoe is the Devil, offering a young man the chance to own a CLA for the price of his soul. The young man imagines a rich and racy lifestyle with girls and glam, before noticing the car's low (for a Benz) price tag. He declines the Devil's offer.

This one was clever and well executed. I would never buy a Mercedes (they scream "new money") but I enjoyed it.

One of my favorite Stones song. I hope I don't see this commercial too often because if this song gets ruined, there will be bloodhshed.

Somehow I missed this commercial in the "mad" scramble to try and watch them all. Just saw it this weekend. This is a very good example of how an effective and targeted ad should be made. The guy saying he can afford to buy it himself because of the price is great.
