Mercedes co-opts the pedestrian crossing green man

Posted 2 March 2011 14:09 by martin

Took me a while to work out this Mercedes billboard ad:

Mercedes and the green man

But I suppose that's what they want – to get people to puzzle over it, and then even get mugs like me to blog about it.

Empty streets, gleaming car, heads turn – dream on…

I've always thought it should be mandatory for ads like this to prominently display the car's fuel economy rating – like the old health warning on cigarette ads.  That would take the shine off them.

It's a Band G by the way.  Pretty poor.
