Deep Thoughts on the New Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Commercial

This latest commercial features a Mercedes Benz SLS AMG surrounded by a team of MB techs and engineers. Analysing, talking, observing. Looking at charts. Pointing, talking to the hand...I mean their wireless mikes running on the CAN BUS. I suppose they are doing some high-level engineering. As we know, all engineers look like models, and dress in white shirts and black pants. We see the car being prepped for some dramatic feat. And then the serpentine belt tensioner breaks, car is out of warranty and AAA tows it to a shop where it is held hostage until repairs are paid for (not)

It would have been nice to have such a team of people help us run our cars in our day-to-day activities. Sometimes it feels like we need it.

Cool spot.

That is a stunning car.

They actually tuned it on Pikes Peak, only a short drive from where I live!!!

For those of you who aren't familiar with Pikes Peak, there is an annual hill climb which is without a doubt one of the most challenging rally/race courses in the world.

I got that look like a dog hearing a high-pitched noise.
