MB R-class

It seems like a demographic match made in heaven — the Mercedes-Benz R-Class and the Rolling Stones. Heck, their names even both start with R, and don't think the marketing folks over at MB would pass on this opportunity for a clever play-on-words - with its sponsorship of the Rolling Stones "A Bigger Bang" tour, MB's also launched a sweepstake dubbed "RocktheR" (nice!). The grand prize is tickets to go see the Stones in Europe via a first-class flight, and a premium hotel stay for two… with Mick Jagger. OK, just kidding about the Jagger part.

      Well, the Mercedes looks better than Keith Richards: http://www.iorr.org/pix/kr-msg.jpg

      A fitting symbol of the Sellout Generation.

      A grocery-getter, soccer mom tour. My, how old they've gotten.

      At least this fits comparing to those ridiculous Ameriquest mortgage adverts the 'Stones (supposedly?) were in.

      This is the poorest fit for an add campaign in recent history. There is nothing rock-n-roll about this wagon.

      Makes sense to me. "Rolling stones" are a Mercedes Benz tradition after all!

      doesn't it seem like you should be able to win the, um, car/van/suv thing in the sweepstakes? Too expensive a give away?
