Since Geoff and David read our post I thought I'd give my suggestion towards the a new Ford commercials.

:nuts: :nuts: :nuts:

This would be a killer commercial and would have a big impact on the audience in my opinion, specialy the younger audince.
Ford should have a commercial for its high perfomance cars, ie Mustang, TE50 and a hot XR8. What they should do is get Craig, Setto n the Rat to drive them in the commercial.

Picture this, the three fellas sittin outside a crowded bar drinkin n its quiet n borring as, then the camera tuns to the from and takes a shot of their rides (mustang, xr8, te50) then the next scene "Boys Light Up" starts crankin n the fellas get up n start doing doughnuts on bitumen infrom of the bar with the crowd cuttin sick n the music crankin!!!

WE HAVE IGNITION! :D

How long do you think that would last before it gets taken off tv in the same way of the VU SS ute? :(

Good Idea though :D

Good thinking but the only problem is that it would get banned before it even goes on t.v .
The current Ford adds are okay but they need to spice it up a little bit.

Eventhough the VU SS ute commercial had a short life on tv it still had a big impact! People still talk about it! You only have to see it once or twice n in the time it was on air i say it about 100 times!

:cool:

It's a pity so many anal retentive people are out there. Remember when fun was fun? And we thought the Nazis were harsh - look where we're going.

If they want to ban ads, I say ban the Toyota AValon ad where they're driving down the middle of the road....

How about this commercial for new XR8 220....

The screen slowly fades in, its Bathurst in all its colorfull glory, then a quick flashback and suddenly we're thrown into the days of B&W, there is a fixed camera looking into H*lden Skyline, the thundering sound of a V8 is getting louder, then finally the legendary HO roars past, its present day, same corner same angle, the colors are vibrant and the road is shimmering, here comes that sound again, and bang, the XR8 220 has blasted past the camera, violently shaking the view as it passes.

They could repeat this pattern through the ESSES, Dipper, and Forest Elbow, some of the best parts of the circuit in my opinion.

Throughout the whole add, the scenes happen very quickly, not getting a glimpse of the driver at any stage, then as the car crosses the start/finish line in the last scene, the handbrake is used to fang the car around to a stop! Lowndes exits the car.

Great idea JEM, with everything except IMO it'd be better if they didn't do the same corner twice, eg GT then XR8 but use the "morphing" technique where the GT turns into the XR8 when the camera gets 90 degrees to the car, so U see a XY GT coming into the corner then morph to XR8 on the way out. Possibly the opposite on the next corner where the XR8 enters but the XY GT exits. We would get to see both ends of both cars that way.
:cool:

Anybody seen the brand new Magna VRX commercial??

I must admit, not bad. Looks as though they have used some of our pointers from previous posts, there's side ways action and all (in the wet though):D :p

Yeh! :wink2: :wink2: That really does it for me. I gotta say, just finished living this ad and I got goose bumps all over!!!
I think Rastus is on the mark with the Morphing bit.
Bathurst, XY GT and the 220Kw XR8. That HAS to be a winning combination.:D :thumbup: I reckon the roar of the Ford V8 supercars engine should be in there somewhere as well.
Come on Ford Marketing, get on board.

I think an ad showing an average guy next to his XR8 and saying "I'm back" would be great. It shows that Ford is the car to buy again. Show him with his previous performance Fords (unfortunately all pre-82) first and then now with the real thing.

Needs work to develop but puts a focus on ownership and driveway credibility.
