Produced by ContagiousLA (CLA) and directed by Andrew Laurich, this bold, branded video campaign via Merkley+Partners speaks to the full range of Mercedes-Benz drivers. Laurich demonstrates a deft hand, from a tech-centric short film for the 2017 E-Class, to a narrative piece for the GLS about a mom and her son that focuses on safety and engineering, and, finally, PGA Tour Professional Golfer Rickie Fowler appearing in a video for the C-Coupe that is both aspirational and inspirational. The latter two videos feature the familiar voice of Jon Hamm. This is Laurich’s second round of videos for the agency and carmaker.
