Play Your Part in the 2013 Focus ST TV Commercial
MAY
16

From programs like EscapeRoutes to the opportunity to share Your Ideas and Your Stories, we like to roll out the red carpet for Ford fans – making it easier for you to become a Ford Insider. And now we are taking things a step further: You are invited to be part of creating a TV commercial for the upcoming 2013 Ford Focus ST!

The stage will be a stretch of asphalt that connects the east and west coasts of Florida’s Key West. The stars will be a pair of 2013 Focus ST cars, piloted by Tanner Foust and Greg Tracy. The film crew will be…you! That’s right, you are invited to capture the spectacle on video and submit your footage for the potential to have it included in the final TV ad.

Share this story with your friends and family to let them know how Ford is inviting their fans to get involved!

For those who will be able to attend, we’ve put together this route map to help you find the best places to grab some action footage.

Focus ST Coast-to-Coast Route Map

You’ll want to arrive early to stake out the best spot. The event will start at 9:00 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, May 16, 2012, and it won’t take long for the Focus ST to cross from coast-to-coast!

Grab your smartphone or video camera and head out to capture some footage! There will be places to upload your video content right on the spot. We’ll also add a feature to this page for uploading video from this event.

Whether or not you’re not able to attend, tell your friends about this latest way Ford is inviting you to get involved, and stay tuned to Ford Social for updates from this TV commercial production, powered by Ford fans! And watch for more opportunities to get involved with Ford!

JJMJRDEC J To really break out , Ford should try to devolpe a self chargeing E car no more cords or charge stations,that would stun the auto world.

Nora G I've been a Ford girl since I bought my first Escort in 1985. I just traded in my last Escort, a 1998 4 door SE Sedan with 171,000 miles on it, for a Fiesta, and I LOVE it. I'm still figuring out how to work all the fancy crap on it, but that Sync System is phenomenal!

Dwain Savage Ford should get it's own identity and stop biting off Aston Martin's. What a cop out.

Juan U I started this addiction with a new 98 ZX3 . 4 years later swapped it for a SVT which has been my daily driver since 2002. I'm due for e new car and this looks very enticing. Oh and I'm keeping the SVT for a project car ;-)

Holly I am so much in Love with my 2012 FF Titanium, I would go anywhere in the world to promote this great car. WELL DONE, Ford!

Tyler good job, you ruined the escape by trying to save a few bucks and slapping a focus front on a decent mid-suv. I was going to buy an escape hybrid, but guess I'll get last years model. dumb.

Charles Duffy I say ford upped the bar on their new line focus. We love our 2012 focus titanium. Mazda, Toyota, and all the other foreign car makers didn't come close with their similar models.

Derek Walker Did a man really recommend buying a v6 mustang with a performance pack? Throw some velvet seat covers on there and an LED exhaust tip and your screaming testosterone! The ST is sweet, it's a very modern, sporty look, with plenty of power and most surprisingly of all GREAT FUEL economy

Lee Henderson If I was on the Commercial I would tell young guys to go buy a Mustang V6 Performance Pack 6sp Man instead for the same price that looks better and is faster in every measurable performance category and would likely get the same hwy mpgs in cruise at 65mph...I might be more open minded if the Focus ST was AWD and had a 365hp Ecoboost 3.5L...Just think it could have been a giant slayer like the Shelby GLHS was back in the 80's...

Ken Leep III Let the car get a bit over-steery in the ad. AWD is totally unnecessary for a lively ride. Just like my ZX3, I can slide that thing with just a lift off of the throttle.
