Those who have followed me for a while know that I love telling the story about Bertha Benz and the first long-distance car ride in history.

Well, @MercedesBenz just made a big-budget period ad about it.  https://youtu.be/vsGrFYD5Nfs 

The only thing that would improve that is Bertha pulling out an egregiously futuristic laser pistol on the line, 'Do you have ten litres of ligroin or not?'.

Also, pretty sure this is the first scene of 'Dark' Season 3.
