If Roads Were Books…
BAS PLUS, Mercedes-Benz’s new brake assist system, is now standard in their S-Class. This ad visually exemplifies everything that the brake assist system does and provides just enough copy to tell people what it is.
Nobody wants to run into a deer with their automobile. A bunch of bad things happen in one event, including: you most likely kill a deer, your car is dented, and you have a serious chance of sustaining an injury.
This ad shows how BAS PLUS sees threats on the road, such as a deer, and “reads the street” so the driver can escape a nasty situation. The strategy was simple: inform people of what this new system does and hope they buy a Mercedes-Benz.
This ad fits two of the needs outlined in Why They Buy: American Consumers Inside and Out: Dominance and Safety.
