From Germany comes an ad for Mercedes that tries to recreate the sexual chemistry between Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze in "Dirty Dancing" ... with a car and a truck. The vehicles perform a kind of motorized street dance to the strains of Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes' "(I've Had) The Time of My Life" from the hit '80s movie. Headlights flash, brakes squeal and eventually they, er, consummate their love (cover your eyes). Some time later, there's a love-child: the Mercedes Vito van, along with the tagline "Born from our boldest genes."

Swedish director Robert Nylund directed for German production firm Cobblestone and Hamburg agency Lukas Lindemann Rosinski.
