that was more promotional hype than anything, the music, the engine noises, saying it has arrived. as in its here. its made, its greenlighted, its in america. This is just straight marketing of the vehicle, get ready for a lot of it starting from now on, soon magazine's, reviewers, etc etc will all be showing the RS. This is the build up period to when they get delivered trying to get people that dont know about the car interested and to go to ford dealers

Yeah I know is a timed marketing thing. I just find it funny that with all the miscommunication around it, people snapping up allocations now, and that possible rumoured delay (please note I'm recognizing it's just a possibility) on a short production year, they're generating more hype for a car that may no longer be logistically available to order come spring! Lol.

On the flip side, it might be an indication that they can probably make more than we think ;)

I thought it was funny, especially with all the talk of delays and all of us waiting for a build date! To see an advert stating its here should be amusing to all of us !!

Lol um...I get your point, but, on the flip side, you're referencing info that we, as the consumer, are not generally informed of or privy to by a manufacturer during a launch process. You can thank the Internet and people for much of the drama escalation that's been going around.

Can't exactly fault Ford for the marketing hype, in and of itself.

Great Video! Building the Hype is fine with me, I would rather watch that than reading the rumors and all the whining. I didn't like the fact that they flew over my garage though, but it was Blue I ordered White!:rolleyes:

yeah I'll agree. But I will say that I've received more reliable info out of this forum than from a dealer, who, is supposed to be the "official" word.

Totally agree with you there. Funny, bc we can thank the Internet and (other) ppl for that, too.

Technology is a double edged sword.

The comments on that video make my brain hurt. It never ceases to amaze me how many stupid people there are in the world.
