Haha, yes. And the California Billboard wars.

Loved the E39 Commercials!

Just curious why they would compare "Amg" E43/53 vs full on M5.

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

Not sure why they chose the M5. If they wanted something scary, it should have been the 4 concept.

I don't mind car companies trash talking each other at all. Makes for great entertainment if the burns are sick enough

So the Mercedes is dressing up as its superhero, which is the BMW? Bit of an odd advertisement.

Lame comeback. I figured they would put in a dig about the bucktooth grills, but I wish they said something like "you got us BMW. Our favorite superhero really is Squirrel Girl"

How do you know it's not an E63S? Did I miss something? Aren't they the same body as the E43/53?

I didn't see any logos other than AMG.

My interpretation at first glance: the BMW 5 is a real horror of a car, and therefore Mercs are dressing up like one during halloween.

I'am afraid that this add is more a campaign against BMW. Not smart.

Despite it being a joke or an ad, it's bad advertising. As already so many people have commented, it almost looks like an advertisement for Mercedes.
