Mercedes-Benz knows what sells cars -- chickens. Wait, what? In "Magic Body Control," the brand hypes its stabilization technology, part of the "intelligent drive" package, by showcasing chickens bopping to the beat of 1980 Motown jam "Upside Down" by Diana Ross. But while the chickens bodies bounce, their heads stay still. This well-known aviary mechanism is called head tracking, and Mercedes-Benz is using it to demonstrate how comfortable drivers will be in its cars. "Magic Body Control," created by German agency Jung von Matt, jumps to No. 1 on our weekly list of the top 10 auto viral videos, with 3,484,808 views.
