    You should check out another dynamic power steering ad from Volvo. Even that is epic. They drive the truck with a hamster.

    I saw the above ad just yesterday and I was whaaaaaaat!

    I remember eight years ago when I found out that companies like Volvo and Mercedes make semi-trucks. I couldn't wrap my head around car companies like that making those big trucks. To this day, every time I see a Mercedes semi-truck with the big silver arrow symbol on the front, I think "how can a truck be a Mercedes?... it's a truck... is it a luxury truck with leather seats in the cab?..." It was easier for me to digest Honda and lawn mowers, but not Mercedes and semi-trucks.

    Yeah, me too mate. Volvo or Mercedes used to be luxury car brands not a truck. :)

    Volvo and Mercedes are making trucks since a few decades. Main market is europe though. This trucks are of top quality, just as Scania & Daf.
    These trucks are very sophisticated.

    Immediately knew it was Enya, and it just went beautifully with this ad. An 80's action movie star doing a split using semi trucks to an Enya track, somehow is emotionally driven.
