Luxury car brands Audi South Africa and Mercedes-Benz South Africa exchanged jabs at each other on social media recently.
The car giants are known to poke fun at each other, but it is nothing more than a bit of friendly rivalry.
The most recent episode took place when Audi posted a tweet about Mercedes using a camera mounted Audi Q7 to film a new advertisement.
“Spotted! @MercedesBenz_SA shooting their next TV commercial…using an Audi Q7. Looks like our friends really do believe in the #BestOrNothing.”, Audi South Africa wrote on Twitter.
Mercedes was not letting this one go without a clap back at the German car brand.
“Nice try @AudiSouthAfrica, but there’s a reason we’re always the main attraction. #TheBestOrNothing”, Mercedes-Benz South Africa captioned their response, along with the finished product of their promo video.
However, tweeps felt Mercedes’ response was weak, so they came up with some of their own clap backs.
“Seriously Mercedes..you can do better”, one tweep wrote, another added “What a lousy clap back after almost 24 hours, I was expecting bomb on this car beef.”
Luckily, the loyal Mercedes fans were not fazed by the weak clap back, adding they would still support the car brand.
