The W213 Mercedes-Benz E-Class is certainly a technological tour de force with plenty of features like dual 12.3-inch display screens forming the instrument panel, Drive Pilot, Car-to-X communication and Remote Parking Parking Pilot.

The latter is the focus point of this French commercial for the Estate version of the E-Class. In the 1 minutes 19 seconds spot, we see a kid on a bicycle greeting his neighbour who just returned home, no big deal.

However, things get creepy as more and more children gather to greet the man each time he gets out of his E-Class, making you think that you’re watching an episode of Stranger Things. Why are they doing this? Why do these children keep gathering outside? Is it the car? Are they planning something devious? You’ll have to watch to find out.

Of course, there’s more to the E-Class than just what is shown in the ad, as we found out during our time with the BMW 5 Series rival in Malaysia, as well as in Portugal.
