We guarantee this is the most “WTF?” moment you will have while watching a car commercial today - heck, maybe even the whole year. First of all, though, please acknowledge that - despite the rather good quality of the footage - the following video is not an official Mercedes-Benz commercial, nor its makers have any connection with the German manufacturer.
Second of all, some of our more squeamish users might even find it a bit NSFW, so consider yourselves advised.

If our Google Translate German is correct, the spoof commercial is actually a thesis film for a team of just three graduates from the Filmakademie Baden-Wurttemberg in Ludwigsburg, a city near Mercedes-Benz's home in Stuttgart.

Considering all the nasty connotations that it might have had for the three-pointed star brand, especially when remembering their pre-war history, it's no wonder why the video has so many in-your-face warnings.

We don't know how the non-authorized ad was received by the people who saw it at Mercedes-Benz, but it sure shows that German dark humor does exist and it's sometimes even better than some old-school Monty Python sketches. Just take a look at the following video and tell us we're wrong.
