Mercedes Car Turns ‘Invisible’ In Guerrilla Campaign

Mercedes Car Turns ‘Invisible’ In Guerrilla Campaign

Mercedes-Benz wanted a new and innovative campaign to promote their latest F-CELL hydrogen fuel cell technology. The technology allows the car to have a 0.0 emission. With that being said, they wanted a campaign to promote the idea that this vehicle is essentially invisible to the environment. How do they do this? They decide to place hundreds of LED lights on one side of the car and a couple cameras on the other. Much like something you’d see from a James Bond movie, the LED displays the environment on the other side, simulating an ‘invisible’ car.
