Marketing the Barra

It's been a great news week for Ford. Now that we know the product is so obviously superior to the current model and from the leeked information also of the opposition products I think it is time to "learn" what the marketing of the Barra will be.

Does anyone know what the media ads will be like.. slogan, etc... we need something as "kick ass" as the cars themselves. Holden Vs Ford is a bit like politics, you have your diehards of both that will never change, its the "swinging voters" that have to be turned the blue oval way!!

Know any secrets??

My mate, BadGuy, heard from a reliable source that the new Ads will feature a Blink 182 song, and a slogan which feature the words "you'll miss it in the blink of an eye" or something like that..
Don't know how truthful the source is though.

PLEASE NOT BLINK 182!!!! anyone else but them

It's better to remain quiet and let people think you are a fool then to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

FPV - Own the Road.

Although I much prefer Happy Jacks slogan from Wednesday.. FPV - "Fu*k Holden"

I would be very happy with a continuation of OWN THE ROAD.

Yes an offical FPV sticker should be availabe just like HSV - I just (dont) want one, FPV - OWN THE ROAD.

It would be great if the youth market get into FPV, but I dont want to see some drongo in his stock EA putting FPV badges all over it.
