Default Jaguar's hilarious response to Merc's "magic body control" ad

Don't know if you've seen the below Mercedes add yet. It's been going around in USA I believe. All about Mercedes new Magic Body Control:



Jaguar has come with a reaction:



You got to love American advertising rules that allow you to take you competitors head on for everything they're worth!

Enjoy!

Amazing war is going on! Simply love it that the USA has such a policy of allowing direct attack on the competition. So much more scope for creativity.

This reminds me of an advertising of Pespi wherein a small kid takes out 2 cans of Coke from vending machine and stands on it just to reach the button for Pepsi which is placed higher on the machine.

Let's see what Jaguar comes up with now!

Hahaha hilarious add by Jaguar. One has to give some credit to the Mercedes add too which I felt was really innovative. But Jaguar literally shredded it to pieces.

I think Merc had the last laugh though all three ads are innovative and classy. Not below the belt as often seen here.
