    Mercedes introduces "acoustic trademark"

    Stuttgart; Oct 25, 2007 -

    As part of its new brand image, Mercedes-Benz is for the first time introducing an ?acoustic trademark?: the new sound logo, which will be used in all ad broadcasts starting on November 1, 2007, is intended to enhance the further developed brand design. Combined with a new film fade-out, the distinctive sound serves to focus attention more sharply on the star as the Mercedes-Benz trademark.

    ?Our new sound logo is going to make the Mercedes-Benz brand not only visually, but also acoustically distinctive, and thus more quickly recognizable,? says Dr. Olaf Göttgens, Vice President Brand Communications Mercedes-Benz Cars. ?This acoustic trademark is a perfect fit for Mercedes-Benz ? it is emotional, elegant, and unmistakably associated with our brand.?

    The Mercedes-Benz sound logo is based on an original recording of an English boys choir from the 1990s. Sound engineers extracted a choir boy?s solo vocal from the recording and adapted it for use in the sound logo. The logo was developed in cooperation with Jung von Matt, Mercedes-Benz? lead agency.

    OK, that's weird enough. Almost as weird as Harley trade-marking the sound of their engines.

    On a sort-of-related note, I hear that engine manufacturers are "sound testing" their engines during run-in. There is an acoustic signature for every engine, and if somethings not right on the engine, it won't match. With enough experience, they're even able to diagnose the problem.

    More BS from the self-important men in cheap suits. What he really means is: 'we've got a new jingle'!

    I wonder how much money they spent to come up with this insane concept?
