Re: You'd Be Popular Too

The new Territory ads on the radio are good, but what's the go with "Matthew Hayden's vehicle of choice"? How is that going to convince someone to buy it?

Re: You'd Be Popular Too

Who is paying for these ads? Ford or the Ford dealer network?

Re: You'd Be Popular Too

You'd be popular too. If you didnt complain! (joking) Just got to remember that the majority of car sales go to people who couldnt care less about performace. As for the camry ad, its been done before, and done to death. As lame as the "you'd be popular" campaign is, its primarily used to highlight specials and sales on the ford range, rather than to serve as the backbone ad campaign. Although, I must say, the jingle gets a little aggrevating.

A better idea for an ad campaign would be a sped up time lapse of a falcon being built down the production line. Holden had one done for its 6 millionth vehicle, never went to commercial air, but quite an interesting clip to watch.

Re: You'd Be Popular Too

I was thinking this after two weeks of the advertising campaign.

It is really very lame.
