Heavy Labour Discount
Hard work does pay off
by Mercedes-Benz Vans
Builders, painters, engineers, plumbers and gardeners are hard-working folks who often go underappreciated. Mercedes-Benz decided to change that when it began promoting its Vito Edition. The company, with the help of the N=5 and MediaMonks, created the Heavy Labor Discount, which celebrates those who do manual labor. The more bruised, banged up and blistered the tradesman's hands, the bigger the discount he received.
Potential Vito buyers who think they qualify can scan their hands via webcam, and the Heavy Labor Discount app then decides whether or not the laborer is eligible. The level of the discount (up to € 9,000 off) is based on the state of their hands. Too manicured? If so, no discount for you.
