The new Mustang commercial is totally 80s

A new video featuring the new 2015 Mustang is bound to stir up a lot of cool buzz around the car although it certainly is a little bizarre. Not a bad bizarre, but an interestingly entertaining bizarre.

I watched the video. If anything will kill this car, it will be this video. not cool...dorky and embarrassing it is....

These guys need to be pushing a Gremlin, maybe a Matador, not a Mustang.

Sometimes Madison Avenue needs to stay out of it....

Wow, that sucked.

calistang05 05-06-2014 02:18 PM

WTF did I just watch! What they didn't have enough money to pay the Jabbawockeez's to dance for them.

Derf00 05-06-2014 02:19 PM

Nothing to do with the car....lame.

Cool, let's emasculate the Mustang as much as possible so they lose the male market like they did in the 90s!

Not entirely true, Mustang sales in the mid/late 90s were on par with Mustang sales from 10 years prior. The current gen is actually one of the worst selling models, however given the rapid inflation the cars have suffered I can see why. Just 10 years ago $25,000 would get you a GT premium, now it barely gets a V6 with a few options.

Wow that was bad! They even managed to make the car look less than spectacular. Not a good color for the new car.

They lost some of the male market, but gained a ton of the female market.

I will agree though, now that I think about it, I do see an awful lot of females driving the current mustang as well. Luckily, 99% of them are V6s, so I can still drive it like it's an extension of my manhood. :icon_banana:

Whatever Ford exec that bought into this worthless crap should be hung by his hairless and atrophied balls.

Well it was a great fifty years, but I believe this is the end of the mustang if that is the new target audience as I believe they prefer the Prius.

I'm a manly military man. However, I actually liked the video.

Blackwheels 05-17-2014 02:30 PM

Best looking Mustang ever built. Period.

Blackwheels 05-17-2014 02:37 PM

It's not about the commercial. It's about the car. The car will sell itself It's still more than ever, a Mustang.

Having lived through that era..I'd just a soon see it go away forever :)

Great looking car, and I thought the video was funny.

I will agree though, that color doesn't do much for me on that body style.

*shrugs*

LordRipberger 07-26-2014 06:36 AM

What did I just watch? hahaha.

The mustang was barely in its own commercial.

sbradle4 07-26-2014 03:04 PM

Da fuq?

JIM5.0 07-26-2014 07:02 PM

Don't like it...wait a minute; just maybe...there might just be some hope...nope, it's just a terrible commercial period.

I hope FoMoCo will not allow this sorry joke to air in any massively popular mass media.

In short, this 30 year old clip from a very old sketch comedy show sums it up:

99GTvert 07-26-2014 07:09 PM

...so I watched like 40 seconds (first 20, then skipped forward in chunks). Mehhh.

What about this video is Mustang exclusive? OR is it just like "hey look what we did with the new car!!1"?
