The Grammy-winning singer who popularized You Oughta Know, Hand in My Pocket, You Learn and a number of other hits partnered with Mercedes-Benz. The partnership between the singer and the car maker thru its Mixed tape online music magazine is for the Underneath single, the first video/single from Alanis Morissette’s new album Flavors of Entanglement. The singer chose the fuel-efficient Mercedes-Benz E320 BlueTEC for the video clip. Alanis Morissette believes in making green choices in the local level as a way in creating a global change. And her choice of this car is one way to make a statement. She added that the Mercedes E320 BlueTEC is just perfect for the concept of the video. The video that was shot in Los Angeles shows Alanis sitting at a bus stop wearing a ‘Save the Earth’ t-shirt and distributing fliers that encourages concern for the environment. So when a Mercedes-Benz E320 BlueTEC passes by, the singer salutes the driver of the car in appreciation of his vehicle choice.
