Mercedes-Benz takes the aviators off of George Steinbrenner's dead eyes.
(click ad, via) Did George drive a Mercedes? Who cares? Mercedes-Benz certainly doesn't. "The Boss" of course was known for his ubiquitous aviator sunglasses. That, and the fact that he, more than any other individual, turned baseball from a pastime into a business. He was a winner? The Yankees World Series winning percentage was twice as high before his reign. Ad by New York agency Merkley+Partners. Previously: Levi's quickly puts its jeans on Ted Kennedy's dead legs. Previously: I hate the Yankees. (No, I am neither a Mets nor Red Sox fan. I used to be a baseball fan).
