I had a ride in a new Ford Escape the other day. Pretty nice actually. Larger than I expected. Anyway, all that just to say that while visiting Craig Hill’s blog entry about Hawaiian Kings, I came across a new Ford Escape ad that had a pretty funny zombie theme. They were obviously pleased with it because they did a short “echo piece” too. Made by Canadian film-maker Patrick Boivin.
UPDATE (later on the 14th December 2012): Curiouser, and curiouser! The links above are now dead. Or perhaps undead. They are gone from the Ford site and everywhere else I’ve looked. The odd other blog that referenced them has the same “this video is private” message now when you click on their links. Sorry about that. Just take it from me – they were witty. Perhaps someone up high in Ford thought the tragic shootings in the US today could somehow be linked to a car commercial. Tenuous at best.
In other news today: The NRA twitter site continues to tweet it’s followers about its rising popularity on Facebook and remind them of its free giveaways. No mention of Newton, Connecticut. Or Ford Escapes.
