First, Mercury uses Spokesmodel Jill Wagner, who apparently leaves more of an impression on viewers than the cars she's shilling. Then there's the "youthful" music likely picked by a wonk in the ad agency. The band's name is Morningwood. Yup. The very same thing that is not likely to afflict the average Mercury customer (unless they're popping those little blue candies). Either way, it's a catchy little tune called Nth Degree, and at least there's signs of life in the Mercury spots.
Tipster Tracy has pointed us to a fun little video posted on YouTube. Someone's apparently got way too much time on their hands, and chooses to create crappy animation in the modern juvenile male motif. You will not get these minutes of your life back. You've been warned, now go waste 'em!

The homemade video and actual Nth Degree are after the jump.

      If Jill Wagner was my girlfriend I would have wood morning, noon, and night. She is a beautiful girl. Anyone notice Chrysler ripping off the Jill Wagner Mercury adds? The have a not even close to being as hot as Jill Wagner women walking through the show room in a pants suit pretending that someone might be actually be interested in something from DCX.

      So Mercury used a song that isn't that great from a band with a not that great name... ok? It could just be me, and I don't mean to be rude, but why does this deserve to be a post/article?

      Jill Wagner is FAFH.

      The best part of the cartoon is the accidental humor caused by the "director's" misinterpretation of the song's lyrics.

      Wow that lead singer is hideous.

      Morningwood's "Nth Degree" was playing on every alternative rock station in 2005. Sheesh.

      Jill Wagner may be a cute lil' hottie, but who picks out her god awful outfits for these commercials?

      She looks like a refugee from the early 90's... Is that supposed to make the Mercury's design look more cutting edge? If the Milan had any more chrome it would be a BUICK! Act now, and we'll throw in a complimentary A.A.R.P. membership!

      I guess this ad is either for chicks who don't like cars, or for d00ds over 64 years old.

      She's a kink girl, too. Ever read her men's magazine interview? It was in Maxim, FHM, and Stuff.
