Mercedez-Benz shows you what buying the new CLA can do for you in their latest Super Bowl commercial.

The Super Bowl has become more about the pageantry and the glamour than the actual game itself. Sure, for the players on the field and the fans of those two teams, the game is what's most important. But, for the many millions that watch the game just to watch it, the most exciting thing is the multi-million dollar commercials that look like they were directed by Michael Bay or the Coen Brothers.

One such commercial that will air during the 2013 Super Bowl between the Ravens and 49ers is paid for by Mercedes-Benz and highlights what driving the all new CLA can do for you. Apparently the CLA allows you to dance like Usher, gets you in to all the red-carpet events and puts you on the cover of all the magazines. The young man watching a billboard of the new car being put up is shown what he can get from owning the CLA by the devil, played by Willem Dafoe. Just before he's set to sign the contract that sells his soul, though, Mercedez-Benz gives him a reason not to, offering an easier option for obtaining the newest luxury sports car.
