Mercedes Benz Opera Race Against The Wind

The Mercedes Benz C Class Estate races against the wind in “Opera”, a television commercial directed by Carl Erik Rinsch in Germany. A stage chorus, dressed in silver, sings original music, “Divine Silver”, as a CGI rendition of the wind pursues the car across the stage, finally reaching defeat.
