That was really well done. I hope they got an A.
 
2013-08-26 02:07:02 PM
Not really. I'd shoot kid Hitler in the face if I knew what he was going to become.
 
2013-08-26 02:07:10 PM
I don't know why Mercedes Benz would make such an ad.  It seems to be in poor taste.
 
2013-08-26 02:08:12 PM
That was great
 
2013-08-26 02:08:19 PM
That is farking great. Nice work.

Surely humanity requires us to wait until a person does something bad before we impose a punishment.
 
2013-08-26 02:09:22 PM
Nice car too. Come with a pussy magnet installed at the factory... it only attracts blonds oddly.
 
2013-08-26 02:10:51 PM
Epic.  I liked how his body was laying.  this is up there this the cat killing car ad, but i think that was a real ad and aired.
 
2013-08-26 02:10:59 PM
So the ad is saying "if boy Hitler had an armored M-B 770 he would be ok"?

Eh.  Can't be as bad as Volkswagen.

I wondered how they were going to make the connection in the mind of the viewer. Only a German citizen and/ or WWII history buff would make the connection with the sign shown. Considering a virtual monopoly on the name Adolph in history, well played indeed.

So you'd rather that the empire-hungry Germany of the 1930's be led by a competent and non-self-destructive megalomaniac instead?

Irony, thy name is Superjew.
 
2013-08-26 02:30:51 PM
Was this before or after the other ad in which the car went back in time to kill Hitler's mother but failed?
 
2013-08-26 02:33:25 PM
 
2013-08-26 02:33:30 PM
Perhaps waiting till he started wearing that silly mustache.

That, or it could become a self-fulfilling prophecy, like Abe Lincoln using his time machine to try to kill John Wilkes Booth.

Reminds me of Minority Report.  These popped up in my head:

"Mr. Hilter, by mandate of the District of Columbia Precrime Division, I'm placing you under arrest for the future murder of thousands of jew that was to take place between 1939 and 1945."

"Sometimes, in order to see the light, you have to risk the dark." - The best of us comes out during the worst of times.  Karma?  Ying vs. Yang?  If there was no evil act there would be no kind acts.  Who knows... who knows...

"In the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king." - Remember hindsight is 20/20.

Problem is altering the time line.  You have to get them before they'd die normally, in order to punish them before their normal death.

Mercedes used to be pretty tight with Hitler - fair weather friends I guess.

How about a Mercedes running over a Henry Ford clutching his Ford-plant-printed Protocols of the Elders of Zion.
 
2013-08-26 02:50:45 PM
Meh.  As a commercial, it tries too hard.
 
2013-08-26 02:50:56 PM
I want to applaud Daimler for just asking for a disclaimer and not forcing the removal of the video, this type of common sense is very rare these days.

My grandfather who was Slovenian escaped the concentration camps. Plenty of slavs, gypsies, and I believe romanians.

I think they deserve an A for that.
