Mercedes team up with The Coen Bros to channel Easy Rider for this year’s Superbowl

branding Melbourne
No doubting that the Superbowl attracts the big boys with the biggest budgets.

And they don’t come much bigger than Mercedes-Benz and The Coen Brothers. Like a match made in first class on the red-eye from New York to Tokyo, this luxury auto brand and idiosyncratic cinematic combo have channeled Peter Fonda’s character from seminal 70’s film; Easy Rider.

When a brand calls for pure entertainment and story-telling, it doesn’t get much better than this.  Buckle-up, tune in, drop out and enjoy…

Directed by Joel and Ethan Coen
Music: “Born to be Wild” by Steppenwolf
