Mercedes-Benz hits the big screen with “Mr. and Mrs. Smith”
Los Angeles, California – A Mercedes-Benz C-Class station wagon shares screen time with Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt in the new movie “Mr. and Mrs. Smith”, which opened on the weekend.
The stars play a bored married couple who are, unbeknownst to each other, highly-trained assassins for competing agencies.
“Numerous successful feature films have demonstrated that Mercedes-Benz vehicles are an ideal addition to a movie’s cast,” said Dr. Ferdinand Froning, responsible for Product Placement at DaimlerChrysler. “In ‘Mr. and Mrs. Smith’, the C-Class will shine. The station wagon perfectly represents the Mrs. Smith character: both are cultivated the powerfully dynamic. Moreover, the design and elegance of the vehicle ideally correspond to Mrs. Smith’s confident nature.”
