Mercedes-Benz released their new extended Super Bowl ad featuring actor Willem Defoe as the Devil who offers a dream deal that includes Kate Upton and Usher.

In the newly released extended Super Bowl game day commercial called “Soul” for the Mercedes CLA, the Rolling Stones hit “Sympathy for the Devil” kicks off the clip in which a young dude is offered a life-changing deal with the Devil (Willem Defoe).

The Mercedes devil of a deal takes him on a high-octane adventure with Sports Illustrated model Kate Upton and Grammy Award-Winning musical artist, Usher.

The Super Bowl spot also reveals the new four-door Mercedes CLA with a turbocharged, 208-hp inline-4 engine. Starting at under $30k, Mercedes-Benz is aiming the CLA at a wider, younger demographic.

The new Super Bowl commercial was filmed in New Orleans where Mercedes-Benz has taken part in several charitable programs for rebuilding and cleaning up the city post-Katrina. In addition, they are also the official sponsor of the New Orleans Superdome, the host stadium of Super Bowl XLVII.
