Mercedes Benz Museum Objects

Marketing is something we’re forced to interact with on a daily basis – whether we like it or not. None of us is immune to it because we’ve all ended up ordering an otherwise shitty beer in hopes that it will make us more interesting (it won’t), or an even shittier towel in hopes it’s really as absorbent as we were promised (is isn’t). And don’t even begin to tell us you’ve never purchased a product based strictly on the emblem on it because you could very well be reading this on an iPad.

Christina Hendricks aside, every once in a while there’s a brand that comes up with some really cool stuff in the process of creating our most prized possession – our car. Mercedes Benz has an entire museum dedicated to all the products, marketing materials, and parts that are really pieces of art just as much as they are anything else – even if you hate Mercedes.

Thanks to NOTCOT you can virtually walk through all the best pieces.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
