Anyone spotted the "new" falcon ads ?

I've always wondered why Ford don't have the kind of ads the Pontiac GTO get (posted on LS1.com.au forums sometimes). But they've taken a step in the right direction, no stupid german engineer, no pathetic "you'd be popular too" gimmick. Its just, this is what we've got and some shots of the car.

The only problem is the ads are mostly the old footage of the guy driving the silver xr along the beach, but with a different voice over.

I quite like the german engineer ad for the fiesta. I found it quite amusing the way he talked.

I really like the Fiesta ad....all a bit of fun.

However I do understand where you are coming from....how much better (talking Falcon ads now) would it be if there was a new, fresh ad with great shots of the car, and stating the facts as to why it is such a brilliant car.

Would you like to change your name to Homer Junior? People can call you Hoju.

I still think Holdens ads are far more camp and corny. some of Fords ads can be cringeworthy sometimes, but generally they are better IMHO

Broken diffs, burnt out clutches, rusted shells. Yep, were in Kingswood Country.

Nah. That German dude ad was definitely scraping the bottom - even Jerry Springer would turn away in disgust I reckon!
