Mercedes Puts the A in Anime

Video / Comments

Bizarre animated movie stars the new A-Class, a mythical noodle truck and a cute female lead.

Mercedes Japan has teamed up with some of the leading names in the Japanese Animation industry to create an anime series dubbed the "Next A-Class". And from the first installment, they can only be described as the most bizarre promotional videos you are likely to see emerge from a carmaker. The series centers around a cute female lead named Nico and two compatriots who joyride through a futuristic Tokyo in an AMG-tuned A-Class. All the while, the skyscraper-packed city is constantly adjusting itself to ease traffic congestion.

Things get even weirder when the trio of noodle lovers spies a mythical noodle truck (based on the 300SL-powered 1955 Blue Wonder). In order to sample a bowl of fabled ramen from the speeding salesman, the protagonists must catch and stop him. The most unlikely of car chase sequences ensues. Next up: tracking down Tokyo's tastiest tofu.
