A$AP Rocky is a new spokesperson for Mercedes Benz.

Part of Mercedes' Grow Up campaign, this entry title "Get A Job" features Rocky detailing his motivation for pursuing a career in music.

The two-minute spot is not just more artistically shot than the average car commercial, but features an incredible tension not normally seen in spots where the bottom line is "You should buy this car."

Ultimately, it's an inspiring tale of following your dreams, and the fact that it's A$AP Rocky in a Mercedes commercial is compelling.
