Oz in the News 1.19.12

Model Lara Stone teams up with Mercedes-Benz for Oz-inspired Fashion Week video  Mercedes-Benz released a new promotional video featuring long-legged Dutch supermodel Lara Stone and the Mercedes-Benz 2013 SL. In the unusual ad, Stone pulls over in her car, unloads a pair of suitcases, and gets taken away by a tornado, much like Miss Almira Gulch in The Wizard of Oz. Yes, Dorothy was swept up in the tornado, too, but Dorothy was in the relative safety of a house while Gulch was only on a bicycle. Then again, Lara Stone is also a bit reminiscent of Mary Poppins sailing around with her carpet bag (but without the umbrella).
