Mercedes-Benz: Blur

Editor's Pick

To launch the Mercedes-Benz 2012 C-Class Coupe in Canada, BBDO Toronto parked one of the cars in front of a motion blurred wall, sidewalk, and billboard that read: "Looks fast. Even in park. The 450hp 2012 C-Class Coupe." To complete the motion-blur illusion, the agency also created 3D models of a motion-blurred fire hydrant, parking sign, and mailbox to be part of the street scene.
