Actually, I love the MB commercials. The older one with the voice-over
singing "O Lord, won't you buy me a Mercedes-Benz?" is very tasteful.
The new one with the campy little song that neatly describes their
entire product line borders on genius.

The Audi ads are pretty good, too, if a little tamer these days.

I see about the same numbers of both; maybe 1-2 per month.
