Mercedes Retailers of Southern California remind viewers that "around here, things aren't always what you expect." In a new spot from Merkley Newman Harty, New York, a swimmer acts like he's drowning in the ocean, but isn't; a babe on the beach looks like a lifeguard who might save him, but she isn't; and a Mercedes M-class car looks like it costs a lot more than it actually does. Art directors/Copywriters: Abi Aron and Aaron Eiseman.
