We've already brought you our official 2012 Mercedes-Benz M-Class preview from the unveiling in Stuttgart, plus a gallery of high-res pics and a video, but since you didn't get to attend the unveiling, you might want to check out this video.

What can you expect? A sampling of the typical unveiling: a hyper-dramatic entrance (complete with a live drummer), executive speeches, lots of background chatter, and, of course, famous songs used out of context. It's a taste of the automotive reporting world, delivered in a condensed 2:13 runtime.

Notable elements missing: goofy old guys making comments about the models, the obligatory 10-minute executive lecture on how efficiency and performance have both improved via engineering wizardry, and, of course, the residual perfume of jet lag, sweat, and inexpensive sport coats.
