Tortoise races ahead with Mercedes-Benz

The classic fable of the hare and the tortoise gets given an automotive twist in this commercial from Mercedes-Benz.

US-based advertising company Merkley and the carmaker chose the tale as the basis for its advert that screened during the NFL Super Bowl in 2015

The tortoise cries “Plot twist” after stopping by a Mercedes-Benz factory and picking up a Mercedes-AMG GT S to zoom him across the finish line ahead of his rival.

To add to the hare’s dismay, it looks like the tortoise has stolen his sweetheart, too.
