    Interesting post Cherrypie, I have the dvd of the Honda ad, with all the parts moving in “synchronicity”, but not musical like the Ford ad.

  2. I like the add and music. However, having driven a Ford Focus 1.6 Courtesy Car whilst the insurance company sorted out my claim for my BMW 1.8 being rear ended, I found it lacked power and acceleration.

      I used to have an E reg Fiesta which I kept for year, I was really sorry to see it go, but I have never been tempted to buy another Ford.

    I’m afraid it doesn’t exactly “Strike a Ford” with me!

  5. That was interesting and quite lovely to listen to…it seems perhaps quality of music comes more from the musician than the instrument itself…

      I think you are right about the music coming from the musicians. I would love to hear them playing their usual instruments to together.
