The Mercedes-Benz AMG Christmas 2012 video turns into an unexpected baking lesson.

Normally you would expect Mercedes to simply showcase its vehicles in a holiday advert, but this year Mercedes has gone outside the box and made a witty video about cars and cookies. The suspenseful video builds you up to believe a group of men are fixated over the speed and acceleration of a vehicle on a race track. They constantly shout about raising the heat and as the anticipation builds, the car finally stops and the hood pops open. The grand reveal unveils a batch of fresh cookies under the hood. All of the cookies are decorated with Mercedes symbols and further promote its brand.

The Mercedes-Benz AMG Christmas 2012 video is inventive, suspenseful and a witty play on an advertising pitch.
