Description of the Project:
To demonstrate „Magic Body Control“, a highly effective stability system of Mercedes-Benz, we used an unexpected approach: dancing chickens. Since chickens are able to keep their heads still no matter how their bodies move, they provide a perfect parallel to Magic Body Control. The success was remarkable: The dancing chickens gathered 11 million views on Youtube and inspired several parodies – even one from Mercedes-Benz’ direct competitor Jaguar.
