Social media sites are buzzing after a Super Bowl commercial featuring the 20-year-old graduate of Holy Trinity in Melbourne was previewed online Tuesday by Mercedes-Benz USA.
The 1-minute and 35-second video -- titled “Kate Upton Washes the All-New Mercedes-Benz CLA in Slow Motion” -- features the Victoria’s Secret model in a simple black spaghetti-strapped tank top and cutoff jean shorts. The camera pans up at the leggy blonde in slow motion; she delivers a sultry stare and blows soap bubbles - it’s a car washing commercial, after all.
The video is generating thousands of Facebook likes, hundreds of comments and shares. Tweeters on Twitter are offering their two cents with hashtags like #kateupton #mercedes #superbowl and #jawdropping. The video has been viewed more than 3.1 million times on the Mercedes-Benz USA channel, and a search on YouTube for “kate upton mercedes commercial” results in more than 43,500 views on ENTV’s (Entertainment Television’s) channel.
The GQ magazine cover girl shared the commercial link on her Facebook page on Tuesday as well. The result? More than 205 shares, 1,818 likes and 115 comments. The posting was part of a “Two for Tuesday” special, a nod to her calendar-like website which features dozens of photos and videos of the model strutting her stuff and striking a pose.
Those at Mercedes-Benz of Melbourne hope the car/Kate Upton commercial generates some buzz about the luxury cars, too. We called the local dealership on Thursday, and while an employee there knew who Kate Upton was, she hadn’t heard about the commercial.
With more than 365,000 Facebook fans, anything the supermodel posts gets anywhere from 400 to 2,000 likes and at least half a dozen shares. She’s social media gold.
The commercial will air during the Super Bowl on Feb. 3.
