For those caught working at this end-of-year festive season, here’s something to lighten your mood a little. Mercedes vs Jaguar. No, this is not another round of Driven Web Series shootout, but a lighthearted jab at each other between two of the world’s most well-known luxury car makers. They’ve got a sense of humour after all!
It all started innocently enough, with Mercedes-Benz releasing a funny TV commercial promoting the new W222 S-Class‘ Magic Body Control feature using chickens. Yes, you read that right; chickens. Watch the first video above to see what it’s all about.
Shortly after, Jaguar released its own version of the same ad. The Coventry-based company’s put its own unique spin into the ingenious video, which it titles – less than imaginatively, we must add – “Jaguar vs Chicken.” Suddenly it’s all Germany vs Britain (or is it Indian now?) again.
But, not one to walk away from confrontations, no matter how silly, Mercedes-Benz has issued Jaguar a reply on its official Facebook page. The image below speaks for itself, doesn’t it? So who do you think has won this cat fight? Thoughts below.
