We stumbled across this interesting video on the Mercedes Benz You Tube page. It’s a well-produced movie pitting a Mercedes-Benz 500 ML against a thoroughbred stallion on an off-road course. There are muddy sections, a hill climb, a log crawl and even a decent-sized jump on which both man and machine compete.

It’s an interesting video, albeit a bit long, for a few reasons. For one, it’s possibly the dirtiest you’ll ever see a Mercedes (especially coming from someone who’s used to seeing nothing but soccer moms driving them to the botox clinic); two, unless you’re Jason Statham in one of the 12 Transporter movies, you’ll never see a Mercedes’ wheels this far off the ground; and three, it’s kind of funny that a BMW is used as the camera car. Just sayin’.
