Anyone know the song in the GLK commercial????

i need to know the song that is in the 2010 mercedes GLK 350 commercial, that has the suv driving through some narrow streets in Italy ( i think).
It is a tribal sounding beat, and the commercial says, "a traction control system that monitors wheel slip 6000 times a minute, is smarter. suspension that can self-adjust to changing roads, is smarter. A 7 speed transmission that improves fuel-efficiency, is smarter. All of this in a smaller SUV, that's just brilliant... introducing the all new GLK. See your authorized Mercedes Benz dealer for special offers through Mercedes Benz financial."

i've done google and multiple tv-ad music forums to no avail. any help would be appreciated

You know, the commercial used SMARTER three or four times and BRILLIANT at the end. With Elite advertising like that they are going to lose 28% of their entire market.

Ha!! Elite advertising aside, I really like the look of the new GLK. IMO it looks like a modern design spin on the 123 wagon.

I knew I liked it for some reason. And I'm pretty sure that's an original soundtrack created for the campaign. You'll hear more of it.

Doesn't anyone have an iPhone with the song recognition app that can hold it up to their PC while playing the youtube link?

If it isn't an original composition that thing will probably know it, it's pretty uncanny.
