Mercedes-Benz India along with Wavemaker Content has brought to life an original web series – Rushes on TheVibe Originals.
The show is called Rushes because of the rush of adrenaline that extreme adventure sports evoke. Every episode is roughly five minutes but quintessential.
On the association,
Mr Michael Jopp, VP, Sales and Marketing, Mercedes-Benz said, “India is a country of diversity not only in the form of different landscapes that you can visit across the country but also from the varied pool of talent that it houses. Our association with TheVibe and creating Rushes was with the idea of celebrating these beautiful people and places of India. The content features a very emotional story wherein the passion and dedication of these local heroes are showcased with their abundant talent and vigour towards one dedicated adventure sport. The same passion and dedication are what we strive to put in our cars and give our best to the customers.”
Rushes, the web series captures adrenaline-pumping activities in their most native places in India. Each episode is excellently constructed and gives you goosebumps. The narration of the stories of these sportsmen are very emotional and at the same time very admirable.
The Rushes captures Six unconventional sports, Six sportsmen, and Six beautiful cities of India.
Rushes was shot in native destinations such as Bedha Ghat in Madhya Pradesh, Jaisalmer in Rajasthan, Rishikesh in Uttarakhand, Tuticorin and Valparai in Tamil Nadu, and Alibaug in Mumbai, Maharashtra.
These are intertwined with visuals of Mercedes-Benz SUVs making their way through dense jungles and open deserts.
The cinematography is alluring especially the slow motions; they are marvellously recorded.
The sports scenes are OMG! Which increases your heart beats.
