The Peanuts and Mercedes-Benz Van star in new commercial

Although “The Peanuts Movie” has already hit theaters in the U.S., other parts of the world are still waiting on Charlie Brown and company to hit the big screen in 3D for the first time. For those in Germany, which Mercedes-Benz calls home, the animated film doesn’t debut until December 23. Similar to what Mercedes-Benz did prior to the Jurassic World release, a new cross-branded promotion for”The Peanuts Movie” is set to begin a little less than a month prior to the “The Peanuts Movie” debut. As you’ll see below, that promotion features a new commercial featuring many characters from The Peanuts cast and the Mercedes-Benz V-Class Van.

Airing in 15 European markets, the co-branded ad encourages viewers to “Join Snoopy’s Biggest Ride With Snoopy’s Biggest Fan,” which is the Mercedes-Benz V-Class. See for yourself in the clip below.

While Snoopy is the centerpiece of the promo, he is joined by a number of familiar faces, including the Mercedes-Benz V-Class. Although the Mercedes-Benz V-Class isn’t available in the U.S., you might recognize the van as the all-new Mercedes-Benz Metris, which just arrived on our lot for the first time. Although the Metris is all-new for the U.S. market, it is based on the V-Class, which has been on sale for years in Europe and other foreign markets.

5 Things You Need To Know About the Mercedes-Benz Metris
The new commercial featuring The Peanuts and Mercedes-Benz will make its television debut on December 5 on German television. Although we shouldn’t expect to see the spot on U.S. television programming, it’s interesting timing, as Mercedes-Benz has been running Metris ads here.

How Many Peanuts Characters could fit in the Mercedes-Benz Metris?

There are a lot of characters in The Peanuts gang, but many of your favorites could fit inside the Mercedes-Benz Metris Passenger model, which seats 8 passengers (10 if Snoopy and Woodstock don’t need their own seats).

With Charlie Brown behind the wheel and Patty aggressively navigating from the passenger seat, there is still space for Linus, Lucy, Violet, Freida, Shroeder, and way in the back, Pig-Pen.

Although there are a few differences between the V-Class and the Metris, it’s worth taking a look at the all-new mid-size van from Mercedes-Benz, which is the most affordable model in the entire vehicle lineup. Take a closer look and explore the passenger and cargo models available on our lot!
