The Mercedes-Benz 'Thanks Airbag' commercial is an artistically modern portrayal of humans coasting along roads as if floating without cars. If two unfortunate bodies are near impact, explosive air bags appear out of nowhere to save them just before a death-consuming collision.
The video begins with orchestrated violins and is narrated poetically, making the air bag equivalent to a selfless being. The video shows shots of heads hitting the air bags. The graphics are dark and boast great detail when objects are smashed. The end of the video portrays a Benz B-Class with Collision Prevention Assist as a standard function. A classy and humorous way to convey the safety value of an airbag, the Mercedes-Benz 'Thanks Airbag' video is a hit.
