'nother new-to-me MKS commercial: "LEATHER WRAPPED CYBERSPACE" (
visually extremely good, the MKS looks gorgeous...
...just not a soundtrack for my(most) demographic(s).
Strongly suggest members here view it first with the volume OFF!

wonder if they could just replace whatever those^noises are with a rock'n'roll version of something Classical :confused: or even TUBULAR BELLS ( > YUP, works for me :)

or maybe
Roll Over Beethoven ( (not Beatles (, nor Chuck Berry ( :eek:....almost... maybe just the last stanza&refrain of the LYRICS ( (sorta like the XF commercial?)

or better yet - just use an instrumental ( with that one line use here'n'there...
"...roll over Beethoven and tell Tschaikowsky the news"
hmmm... could 'B&T' refer to some other lux brands???

also found a HomeMade one ( :rolleyes:
and an info-mercial I hadn't seen (, too

2b2, OMFG I loved that commercial. OK maybe not for the demographics for this car, but WOW. I love the song before the commercial but I think they should do the same commercial with the Fiesta!!

Whew now that I have calmed down from the excitement.

I can totally see a Fiesta commercial with that song

2b2, another great commercial:

^ Yup :)
"Lift Off" is much more to my liking ;)
tho I've read some dissing of this version of the song not being forceful enough
imho the laid-back rendition suits the MKS -- just sitback and enjoy your flight :D

found a Youtube of an MKS testcar with clear taillight lenses _ interesting
LINK - only 18 seconds (
noticed a tube-ish review of (one of) the ads
"I Want a Starship" (
kinda neat to hear the 20-something (i think) guy who liked the ad enough to say so on the toob
& now he wants an MKS :) ...when/if he can afford one

I saw an amazing commercial today. It was not a Ford product but the new Audi A4 commercial. The commercial had great music and I saw something subliminal. If you watch the commercial and near the middle you see a light fixture that is a wave design and then later the car has the same wave lights as the headlights. I just thought that was a little smart.

Also to add to the Touch commercial for MKS, I thought it hit the CTS commercial in the gut. I watched the A4 and then went online to watch others and loved the MKS one just as much as the others.
