What I first saw this ad or joke, the Mercedes looked so much better than the 5 series costume. So I actually thought that it was a ad for Mercedes dressing up as an ugly car.

This is actually very simple, very funny and very creative. Kudos to BMW marketing crew.

This also isn't the first cute play between BMW and Benz. It actually seems to be very friendly (not trolling) and in good spirit.

Its been done before and it speaks volume how these two companies respect each other, yet can throw a healthy, tactful joke at each other.

Dieter Zetsche, ex-CEO of Benz retirement. Take a look:

Friendly rivalry helps motivates each other to perform better. thoroughly enjoyed Dieter Zetsche retirement video. Did BMW hire a stand in? I am surprised herr Zetsche would go along!

I think it's a great idea for car covers in general.
