A45 AMG Drifts Around Buddhist Monks, Ruins Their Zen

Leave it to the Japanese to come up with a really cool way to promote a German car. Mercedes is big in the land of the rising sun, and this commercial released just hours ago caught our attention.
It's about Buddhist monks and their Zen-like state, where they can meditate and completely block out outside world. The only problem is, the A45 AMG is so exciting that it gets even their blood flowing.

Footage of a 4x4 going round in circles in a tranquil setting befitting a samurai movie, now that's good television if you as ask us. For breaking their "zazen" state, the five monks are punished with a slap on the back… shame on you mister monk.

What do you guys think, isn't this better than seeing F1 drivers drive the A45? We think it is.

Update: The video has been removed by Mercedes Benz Japan. It could have something to do with the fact that the A45 AMG hasn't been launched yet...

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
