So much wrong with this Mercedes Benz Commercial....
(First- yes, I am aware that it's actually not even for Mercedes Benz, but for a line of special cleaning products designed specificially to keep your Mercedes Benz looking Showroom-New. Doesn't help.)
Can we just start with the juxtaposition of the guy washing and waxing and shining up his car while his date is primping and preening HERSELF? She's not busy scrubbing her immaculate-even-for-television ridiculous glowing-white house. She's getting HERSELF Showroom-Ready. Meanwhile the guy isn't shaving, he isn't showering, he isn't applying deodorant and, as it turns out, he's not wearing the correct sneakers (I guess. Whatever. I don't get that part at all.) He doesn't need to- he could show up wearing bright orange shorts and black socks with white shoes for all his date gives a damn, because Let Me Step Aside So You Can Check Out My Ride.
And that's another thing. The guy seems to realize that he's ridiculously underdressed for his date with a woman who spent hours getting ready (always with a giant smile on her face, like this guy is a great catch- because he has a hot car? Really?) She's dressed to the nines and ready to go....somewhere glamorous, I guess. But he looks like he's ready for an afternoon in the bleacher seats at the Cubs game. Did they get their wires crossed, or what? If a mistake was made, it was cleaerly made by the GUY in this situation, as he sort of sheepishly acknowledges before reminding his date that Hey Once Again, Check Out My Ride- Does It Really Matter How I'm Dressed?
The bottom line here is that this woman spent all afternoon getting ready for a date- with a fricking car. I hope they are very, very happy together. Oh, and here's another bottom line- I've seen puddles far less shallow than these idiots. They totally deserve eachother- and I still don't know if I'm talking about the guy and the girl, the guy and the car, or the girl and the car.
