Credits & Description

Clouds takes place in a remote rock-strewn plain. Miles from civilisation a thrill-seeker decides to take on the elements. Roaming the desolate landscape in an open-top car, he instigates a game of cat and mouse with the clouds above, taunting them out of their placid state until their anger manifests itself in the shape of cloud-warriors. They hurl huge pieces of cloud around the sky ferociously, trying to cast darkness on him as he speeds and swerves to avoid the shadows.

Maintain and enhance Mercedes-Benz leadership credentials in a way that helps Mercedes-Benz feel younger, less conservative, and more dynamic. Help first-time buyers of a premium marque put Mercedes-Benz at the top of their consideration list, whilst also delivering the volume objectives for the year.

Leverages the SLK as a halo product to inject youth and dynamism into the brand by talking about direct control steering and exploring the relationship between the driver, the car and his environment.
