Is this for real?

Is it just me, or is this just a little bit on the racist side?

Lol, they did the same thing with some special edition watches awhile back, and I couldn't believe they were serious either.

I think the really offensive thing is charging $400,000 for an SL.

No question that's VERY racist but the Germans don't live in our PC part of the world.

I am glad it's not just me then. I thought it was someone's idea of a hoax when I first saw it, but then it became clear that it really was genuine. I just could not believe that someone in Daimler's PR department hadn't put a stop to what seems to me to be a very bad idea. I also find it hard to believe that Hamilton is going along with it.

Best wishes, John

No I didn't. I usually only watch the race itself (that way I avoid the risk of seeing Bernie Ecclestone). I assume this video will have gone down a storm in Ferguson and New York.

Racist?!? Really.....?!?

Hamilton chose his black workwear & black winners T-Shirts, his MB theme is very black in colour whereas Nico's is white...... I think it's very good marketing & clever identity.
And have you not seen Lewis lately? He is very "black rapper", baggy pants, gold chains, headphones etc, even talking of taking up music!!
It's people's attitudes not designers ideas that are racist

It's really not truly racist until the day comes when he starts to hang out with Justin Bieber.
