I didn’t think it was possible but I’ve found a commercial more disturbing to me than the Burger King who haunts my night terrors. For some reason, DaimlerChrysler seems to think that we will buy their cars if we are driven into a wall by a scary German guy who, in an Island of Dr. Moreau sort of way, is an odd combination of Colonel Klink and Sergeant Schultz.
Come to find out, this is a real guy. His name is Dieter Zetsche and he is the actual chairman of DaimlerChrysler. I know German engineering has improved since 1937; but, when I see these commercials, all I think is Hindenburg.
