Mercedes and Jaguar Throwing Friendly Punches in Ongoing Ad Battle [w/videos]

Ah, here we go again. Two more luxury automakers are taking some friendly (?) shots at each other through a series of clever ads. While Jaguar threw the first punch — making a yolk out of Mercedes’ chicken ad with a clever ruse of its own — Mercedes was quick to strike back.

In a recent print ad showing up on its Facebook page, Mercedes shows one of its cars about to come face to face with a Jaguar (yes, the animal). The caption reads: “Because cat-like reflexes aren’t fast enough. The PRE-SAFE brake.” Shots taken.
