Meet Cheryl. She’s a member of Ford Social, and a life long Ford fan. Used to have a 1951 half-ton pickup. And a 1968 Mustang. Now she’s got a bright blue 2012 Mustang, and a badge to match on her Facebook page.
She also happens to be a big fan of American Idol.®
So we snagged a couple extra tickets to the show, and invited her and her husband, Barry, to load up the Mustang with her dog, Colonel Klink, and head out to Hollywood to take in a live taping. Her response: Yahoo!
Cheryl and Barry weren’t the only members who got to see American Idol up close. We kept an eye out for Ford Social members who loved the show, and sent several die-hard American Idol fans out to L.A. to cheer for their favorites, take in some of the sights and watch a behind-the-scenes music video shoot with the contestants.
We’ve also created a photo collection from the night, which you can check out here. We’ll continue to upload photos here over the next few days, so keep an eye on it for the latest images!
One mother-daughter duo got a little hair and makeup from some of the same celebrity stylists who work on American Idol participants. Another couple even got engaged on the way over!
Why would we invite people on a trip like that?
It’s simple. We’re on a mission to celebrate the people who love what we do, and push us to work harder.
For about the last six months, we’ve been pulling strings and finding fun ways to return the love, every chance we get. Whether it’s exclusive access to a celebrity party, one of the biggest events in the auto industry, or a major racing event, we want our community there for the ride. And when we saw pics of your dirtiest trucks, we couldn’t help but send the owners some Ford Social car wash kits. Just last week we had some of our top ST fans down in Key West to be part of our TV ad video shoot.
But we’re just getting started. There are a lot more surprises on the way. So keep talking. We’ll be listening.
