Mind the cap

E-Class Estate is caught with its fuel cap flapping in the wind in Merc’s new ad

Yesterday we showed you a picture of the new E-Class Estate - one of Merc's most important cars of the year.
 
The budget is signed off, the car is ready and they've just spanked millions on a new advert - twisty roads, helicopter cams, mega driving shots, the full cheesy works.
 
Then some idiot removed the fuel cap.
 
Go to 1:10 on this video and take a look for yourself: 

 

Oops. So what happened to it? 
 
Maybe they took it for a spin through Longleat before the shoot, and the cap is now in the hands of a thieving pack of lemurs.
 
Or maybe some rednecks nicked it, to make into a swanky catflap for their trailer park home.
 
Your suggestions are welcome...   

Now share it...
