Video: David Coulthard Catches 178 MPH Golf Ball in an SLS AMG

Let's face it, golf is for rich, old, white dudes. Congrats to Mercedes-Benz UK's marketing team for knowing their target audience. In a new promo campaign, Mercedes wanted former F1 driver, David Coulthard, to attempt to catch a golf ball, hit by golf pro Jake Shepherd, in a moving SLS AMG.  Not a chip shot, mind you, but a 178 mph drive.

Now that it was a success, Mercedes can release their targeted ads for the over 50 crowd, and Coulthard can go back to having brunch...with supermodels.
