0230/168 June 2016Bentley Motors Ltd
Wheels Magazine placed this advertisement on their web-site.  From the text below, they claim: " Late last year, Pommie journo Ben Oliver thought he could do better than that. So he arranged for Bentley to lend him a Continental GT Speed. Bowe had previously maxed out the Continental himself, having been hired by Bentley to drive it for a video they produced of the event. He even got a bit more speed out of it."
So clearly Bentley paid the driver so they could produce the video and they lent them the car. It is clearly an advertisment, because it features the Bentley logo at the beginning and at the end, it has the logo, the web address BentleyMotors.com and the words # BeExtraordinary.
Wheels Magazine can hardly claim that this is editorial.
Additionally, during the ad, there’s a link on the side to another Bentley ad, using the same logo at the beginning and end.

0231/168 June 2016Mercedes-Benz Aust/Pacific P/L
While driving at a sedate speed through picturesque mountains a couple reach a ferry stop. One character suggests to the other, 'if we take the ferry we could save an hour'. The suggestion is the ferry is an hour faster than how long it takes to drive the route. The other member of the couple accepts this as a challenge to shave an hour off the time and equal or beat the ferry , 'challenge accepted', and the couple race back to their car. The music speeds up, the car is shown at various swelling curves of the road, and the suggestion is that the race is on. The tagline is 'instantly thrilling'.

0258/168 June 2016Mars Confectionery
A woman is sitting on a couch, and says to a man "I feel like a snack".
The man says "Yeah" and goes to the kitchen and opens a cupboard.
He is then repeatedly hit in the head by a number of objects that are thrown out of the cupboard.
The camera then shows what are supposed to be M&M chocolates in the cupboard that are holding objects that they are about to throw.
The man says "Get in the bowl", and the M&M chocolates in the cupboard say "You get in the bowl".
The M&M chocolates in the cupboard then throw another object that hits the man in the head.

In the background the woman twirls her hair, seemingly unaware about what is happening.

It is highly likely that she was aware the man was being hit in the head, and she had purposely asked him to get the chocolates from the cupboard knowing he would get hit by objects thrown at him.
