If you're looking forward to to checking out the commercials during this year's Super Bowl, you don't have to wait until game day.
This morning, Starting Point gets an exclusive look at the ad by Mercedes Benz, filmed in New Orleans and starring Kate Upton and Usher.
In the ad, Mercedes unveils its new Mercedes CLA, a "highly stylized coupe" at a lower price that is aimed at younger car buyers.
"We felt like this was an opportunity to introduce Mercedes Benz to a much broader audience, to folks who probably wouldn't have ever considered a Mercedes Benz," company president and CEO Steve Cannon says on Starting Point this morning.
When asked about the cost of the Super Bowl spot, Cannon acknowledges that it was an "eight figure commitment," but insists that "when you play in the Super Bowl, you have to step up your game."
Starting Point airs weekdays from 7am to 9am ET on CNN. Check in often to join the daily conversation.
