Waugh directed the upcoming movie “Need for Speed,” and helms a new co-branded ad for the film and the all-new 2015 Ford Mustang that debuted during Sunday’s Daytona 500. The ad features scenes from the movie, where Marshall tries to get his life back on track in the new Mustang with a voiceover that sets up the premise of the movie.
“Do you really think that if you’ve been set up, accused and convicted, a new car can put it all behind you?” is asked. “Depends on the car!”
