Mario’s Getting a Mercedes


If you’ve ever played a Super Mario game, you’re going to love the new Japanese commercial for the Mercedes-Benz GLA SUV.  In it, an 8-bit Mario smashes blocks, collects coins, and runs over baddies in a pixelated Benz. When he wraps up the level, the NES game turns live-action, and a tough looking Mario in Batman-esque armor emerges from the SUV.  Besides being a fun ad, it marks a notable shift for both Nintendo and Mercedes-Benz.  It’s the first example of Nintendo licensing its intellectual property after its president Satoru Iwata announced the company would move in this direction as it struggles to profit from games on its Wii U console, Bloomberg reports. The GLA will also be the first real-life car available in the upcoming “Mario Kart 8.”

The Mercedes F125 Hydrogen Concept.

The Mercedes-Benz F125, is the latest technology concept in a long line of research vehicles, from the Stuttgart-based automaker.  Powered by hydrogen and electricity, the F125 will initially evolve from it’s gullwing coupe effect, into a four door sedan, and it may very well be the future generation of the S class Mercedes-Benz.  This luxurious eco-friendly car of your dreams is perfected by an E4Matic all-wheel-drive-system, consisting of 4 motors mounted in each wheel, a total of 231 horsepower and it’s able to get from 0-62 mph in 4.9 seconds and from 80 to 120 km/h in 3.2 seconds. The top speed of the F125 is 220 km/h.

The electric motor is powered by hydrogen fuel cell, offering 621 miles on a full tank of hydrogen and aside from the fuel cell; the Mercedes F125  stores it’s energy in a Lithium-sulfur high-voltage battery.  The avant-guard interior design of the Mercedes F125, features some of the latest technological innovations, such as natural touch, gesture and voice control, and the “your command” cloud-based infotainment system.  The saloon architectural seat design is fashionable created for the style conscious individual and each automobile is tailored to the driver’s personal needs, without removing his hands from the steering wheel.

The lounge-like atmosphere is entwined with Wood, Alcantara and Silk.  The COMMAND of the day and tomorrow are also proactive.  The Mercedes-Benz F125, in any case is a large vehicle. Measuring 4998mm in length, 1980mm in width, 1430mm in height and 3333mm wheelbase, now feast your eyes upon the slide-out trunk. This is the vision of the future mobility.  The overall picture is redefining automotive luxury and the Mercedes F125 is emission-free driving in First Class.

Dat Carlo P.

Every once in a while I get the urge to collab with another artist on music, graphic design, or any other project that catches my interest.  This time I thought I’d take it out of the box a bit, and just collab with a casual friend of mine.  A few weeks ago I had my homeboy Carlo Palencia drop me a list of some of his favorite jams, from Hip Hop to House, and I would take them and mash them up.  The mix starts with some good Hip Hop from Jadakiss, and continues into tracks featuring Lil Wayne, Fabolous, Ludacris, and T-Pain.  Along a slpash of dancehall, the second half of the mix is layered with the surly bass of various house tracks, and not only showcases Carlo’s vastly broad taste in music, but displays a wide variety of music in a simple 16 minutes.  If you might be interested in shooting me a list of songs you’d like to hear mashed up club style, just hit me up, and we can work something out.  Click the pic below to download “Dat Carlo.
