I saw a G-Wagen commercial last night

It showed a barrier crash test, and it failed. Not the G-Wagen, the barrier. There were some offices behind the barrier and at the end of the commercial you heard somebody yelling “What the hell are you guys doing in there!”

Howdy Jim,
It looks like DC has some big plans for the G if they are advertising it. They had a small quota but you can't limit it too much and expect to pay for the ads.

I wonder if it's been crash tested here by the insurance institute here. It might set a whole new standard for crash testing. They might need to add another star to the rating system!

Howdy All,
Caught it today, that is great!¡
Hey Kuan, Europa had to have the G crash tested so they could import them. Probably not 500's but 280 or 320.

Just saw the commercial last night...twice!

Loved it!

For the next commercial...show the G-wagen approaching the barrier, stopping suddenly, then crawling OVER it!
