Drivers and pedestrians were doing double-takes as they rounded this corner in downtown Toronto today. A very sleek-looking black Mercedes was parked in front of blurred background creating an illusion that the car was speeding down the street. The scene included a blurred mailbox, parking sign, fire hydrant and ad copy that read ‘Looks Fast Even In Park’.
It’s all part of a clever promotion put together by Mercedes-Benz Canada to promote the new 2012 C-350 Coupe. The car will be back at this location on Peter Street just south of Queen Street West from 9am to 7pm Saturday.
By the way, I know what I want for Christmas now.
