Casting Call: Contestants Wanted for Ford Road-Trip Competition!
DEC
13

Get your A-game on, because what we think could be one of the hottest event of 2012 will be Escape Routes, a new online interactive reality series, featuring the all-new 2013 Ford Escape and six two-person teams, competing in physical and virtual challenges! Ford is currently casting those two-person teams, who will use Escapes to travel across the country and solve various challenges in real time while a social circle of friends, fans and followers play along virtually. Every week, the teams will arrive in a new city to partake in spontaneous adventures and interactive social gaming. Escape Routes will begin in March.

Weekly episodes will launch on multiple distribution platforms to show highlights from each adventure. Additionally, short-form vignettes will promote the show and drive consumers to the deeper online/mobile platform. Each day, followers can tune into the live-streaming feed that allows them to become participants and impact the outcome of the program through a series of interactive challenges.

Each team will have its own personal content creator selected from blogging networks. This person will be embedded with Escape Routes and capture exclusive behind-the-scenes content that will be distributed through his or her social graph as well as other earned and owned platforms.

For six weeks, teams will be in front of the camera, battling it out for cash and prizes. Think you’ve got the driving chops, killer instincts and spirited enthusiasm needed to not only compete but to win? Bring it! Apply online at escaperoutes.com or head over in person to one of the following casting calls (details are at escaperoutes.com):

December 17: Dallas and Boston

January 7: Seattle and Miami

January 14: San Francisco and Atlanta

At escaperoutes.com you can also check out video of the kind of adventures you can expect from Escape Routes.

Ford has teamed up with Emmy-winning reality producers for Escape Routes, and it’s expected to be even bigger and more through-the-roof than last year’s wildly popular online competition series, Ford Focus Rally America!

Tom Paulsen I would do it if you let me drive the 2012 which looks like a real SUV and not the replacement Asian lookalike jellybean station wagon. It was time for a new Escape, but I wish we would have gotten something that looks more SUV and less Focus Wagon.

Dave Evans Ford did the same exact thing with their "Focus Rally" marketing failure.

Dave Evans Why is a video submission relevant? Isn't it enough that we love Ford products? Oh--that's right! They're only looking for actors! People who can convey trendy urban-spoon-loving cappuccino-drinking hipsters!

Dave Evans Here we go with another Ford marketing effort where they hire goofy actors who meet their desire for divercity (one pair of African-Americans, one pair of Asian-Americans, one pair of Latino-Americans) and all look like hipster fashion models. NO ONE here on the Ford Facebook forum or actually dedicated to the Ford brand will ever be chosen to participate. I guarantee it.

Raymond Keith Wratchford You can count on me to drive ,just give me a call.

Darlene TheQueen Waller hey Robert... you must also upload a video! I wasn't ready for that so I'll apply again later. I may be wrong, but I dont think there's a more loyal Ford person than one that lives, eats and breathe Ford! Most of them live here so... what's the deal? Yeah I know I sound like a spoiled brat! ha!
