Mercedes Benz unveiled the newest instalment of the on-going best professional photographer photographer/supermodel collaborative online video advertisements today – a 2 minute 20 second video clip taken by Ryan McGinley, featuring Karlie Kloss.
The advertisements are usually unpredictable – in the latest season’s we’ve observed Lara Stone trapped within a twister for Alex Prager along with Joan Smalls like a sculpture who can come to real life for Mario Testino – however this most recent release is easily the most crazy one since Jessica Stam made out by using a vehicle for Terry Richardson.
McGinley has raised from the dead KITT, the computerised vehicle from David Hasselhoff’s hit 1980’s Tv show Knight Rider – in Mercedes type of course – to experiment with a cunning trick on the extremely overdramatic Karlie Kloss.
Out for just a windy, mountain drive in a very billowing white Chloe costume, Karlie Kloss happens on a white stallion by the roadside. When she jumps out of the vehicle to gaze longingly in to the horse’s eyes, the Mercedes amazingly comes to life and speeds away without her.
Catastrophe! Our heroine, who luckily for us owns the longest legs on earth, has to hitch up her dress and rush right after the mischievous car, arms strangely waving significantly in mid-air, and pitch herself at the rear windscreen.
The vehicle, which plainly isn’t in awe of the Karlie Kloss supermodel qualifications or well-known group of close friends, basically drives away anyway leaving behind Karlie Kloss to sit down on your own by the dusty roadside and have a very long close look at herself.
The video, entitled ‘Mind of its Own’, was artwork directed by Dazed & Confused genius Jefferson Hack and it is with a number of 12 completely less crazy behind the curtain images. As vehicle advertisements go, it’s a most enjoyable way to successfully pass two minutes, only if to wonder at Karlie Kloss OTT performing. Enjoy…
