Bertha Benz: The Journey That Changed Everything

In a time when “car” was not even a word yet, and people relied on horses to pull their wagons, one woman challenged the status quo. To prove to the world that her husband’s invention was the future of mobility, Bertha Benz went on the first long-distance journey with an automobile, facing all kinds of challenges but stopping at nothing. The rest, as they say, is history.

    I would rather see it with German-speaking actors, not with British, you could have used subtitles. In my opinion, you ruined the whole campaign and it's a pity because the idea of presenting history is perfect.

    An interesting advert. However is not historically accurate. In 1888 trains were very common and people already used to iron machines moving without horses. There's no evidence Bertha suffered any abuse from people, who saw her in the journey. In contrary: they were amazed and helpful. When wooden brakes in the vehicle failed, local shoemaker padded them with leather for her. Still, it was extremely bold of Bertha to do so. Her husband didn't know and told her machine wasn't ready to be seen by public. She did it to be seen and those day name of respectable woman was acceptable in the newspaper only as obituary.

    I don't like this commercial. Why? She travelled for 12 hours. Ok. She believed in... Herself. Nice. But how many hours spent her Husband, creating this first car? Making calculations, experimenting? Failing over and over? 12 hours? How much intellectual work was done before he made it? How much energy and labor did he put into It? And finally: his wife "Changed our lives". Don't you feel something is wrong? No? Really? Yes. I understand this commercial. It's really emotionally well made for people, who believes that 12 hours of sitting and " fuell shopping" change their lives. That's so romantic and feels so right for believers, but not thinkers. I'm not about "sex fights". I'm about real life and whose who makes it better. I'm about the Truth. Thank you, Carl Benz.

    Mercedes Benz isn’t saying that Karl Benz is obsolete compared to his wife, they’re just sharing a story you probably never heard of which was also revolutionary at the time and is a key part to the story of Mercedes Benz.

    I have a question for Mercedes Benz. The visuals , casting, photography and story telling in this video are excellent. The music is especially atmospheric. My question is what is the name of the music used in this video? Was this music commissioned especially or is the music available online? I did try to Shazam the music score but I did not get a match. Any information you can provide about the name and performer of the music track will be appreciated. Thank you. Keep up the good work.
