One thing that seems to be working at Ford is the advertising group's creativity. There have been some pretty clever ideas coming from those studios, and if you follow this link to the Shelby Autos website, you'll see the fruits of their labor once again. As a follow up to the Mustang GT burnout "how to" featuring the father and son in a parking garage and the GT500 "couldn't find a suitable speed limit' spot, we hope to see this one on TV as well. We're a little curious as to why they used the rental-only Shelby GT-H in the video instead of the available-to-everybody Shelby GT, but it's not like it diminishes the fun in any way. Enjoy.

      Is the advertising group really doing such a good job at Ford?

      All I see is a bunch of overly earnest "Bold Moves" ads that avoid focusing on the vehicles themselves, their attributes and specs, because they're long neglected and outdated, and don't compare well with the competition on a point by point basis. Referring to the Focus, Five Hundred, Freestyle, Crown Vic, Explorer, which are all collecting on lots like lemmings gathering for a mass jump.

      Very inventive! I dug it. Good for them.

      I believe there was a dodge charger ad or something that had a cop chasing the car and then at the end the cop gets out of the car and the owner gets out of the police car. This ad seems a pretty strong rip off. But that is what happens in the advertising industry.

      Pretty nice though.

      Just like toyota's RX commercial of a while back.

      number 20 your right about the CURRENT charger...I was refering to the orginal charger 440 and its compition with the orginal GT500

      I am 18 so I dont have 42K to spend on a car BUT if I did I would deck out a Lotus Exige and get a pool OR a M3 OR a G35 coupe ...most of the GT500's on ebay are selling for amazingly high prices (mid 50's-low 60's)....I dont understnad what is so great about this car, there are just better cars for the money and for less

      That was a fantastic ad! We need more entertaining ads like this. Way to go, Ford!

      (did I just say that last sentence out loud?)

      i agree, cool ad. as for the argument about ford's other ads; of course many are junk, but there are also are/have been several cool ones... i.e. mustang engine playing the anthem, ford gt on the track, gt500 in germany...

      they have their fair share of good ones, you have to give them credit for that.
