In today’s world a company coming up with new and innovative ideas for commercials or publicity stunts is no easy task. People loved when Bud came out with the Up For Whatever stunts, but Ford is carving out their own stunt with Speed Dating with a Ford Mustang. The new supped up Mustang is fast and can give anyone an adrenaline rush, we would know because we have transported quite a few of these Mustangs.
The premise for this skit/stunt is that these guys are going on a blind date. The blonde girl that these men are meeting is a professional stunt driver, but none of the men know this. They meet up at a pub or restaurant and share some small talk. Afterwards the lady gets each guy to leave and she says she will drive. While she is driving the guys are kind of knocking her for her driving skills. Obviously she was driving a little worse than normal to make the skit funnier and better. The claims to make a wrong turn and heads into a large parking lot where she says she is going to turn around. Once in the parking lot, though, she puts the petal to the metal and tears up the road with the Ford Mustang. The expressions on the guys faces along with their verbal enthusiasm was priceless. Some were having the time of their life and others were a little scared of what was going to happen. Can you imagine if that was you in the passenger seat? I know I would be crapping in my pants and thinking this lady is a nutcase and I was going to crash and get hurt.
In the end, the guys had a great time and loved the new Mustang. The stunt worked for those guys and has been wring for the people watching it. It was very creative and innovative to have a stunt like this and have it pulled off. What did you all think of this?
