This is a fun advertising campaign, courtesy of Mercedes-Benz – and one that’s just for truck drivers.

To promote its new Actros truck model, Mercedes-Benz created ad stickers in the shape of a roof window showing the enthusiastic response of passengers (if the truck driver had been driving an Actros, of course).
