Dear Mercedes-Benz,

Do you need someone to help you with your English grammar? Less doors? Seriously?

    Mercedes could care less!

    I’ll even offer that “Less ‘door’ ” ( with no ‘s’) would have been kind of clever, if that’s what they were going for.

    Maybe this http://www.nzetc.org/etexts/Gov03_02Rail/Gov03_02Rail020a.jpg is an early type of a “car” to be eqipped with “less” doors.
    Althoug I wont mock to much: It almost happend to me to write “less-er” , forgetting this is already an irregular form.

    Paschberg, you may mock! Mercedes pays several hundred thousand dollars for a single commercial, hires an English speaker to do the voice-over, and then wants it specifically THAT way. I am sure at least 20 people spoke up at one time or another to say “You know, it’s actually “fewer” doors..?” “No, no, this is the way we want it!”
