Desire Is Something You Can’t Control
Do you control your desire? Check out this sleek/bleak marketing material from Mercedes promoting their new SLS AMG. The actor here featured is Dougray Scott, who, aside from having a name that’s actually three first names (tricky, “Dougray”!), made millions starring as Ethan Hunt’s nemesis in Mission Impossible 2, a sadistic killer in New Town Killers, and a love-struck chef in Love’s Kitchen. Scott doesn’t seem to be able to control his desire, as in the end he gives in to temptation and finds himself cruising the dark streets of Los Angeles in his silver Mercedes.
