Apparently Mario Drives a Mercedes

Interesting team up here…Nintendo and Mercedes. At first, it seems like a strange combo but then realizing who they’re targeting (people in their 30’s who grew up with Mario aka me) it starts to make sense. And the fact that it’s a Japanese ad. Even Honda is trying to get me to buy a car by tugging at my He-Man nostalgia heart strings.  Unfortunately, for them, it won’t work. But valiant effort you mega-money car manufacturers. Although, I guess they’re winning because I’m writing about this and sharing their video…damnit. Just stop using my childhood against me. [via BI]
