Ford Fiesta Movement Contest

So there's this contest where Ford is giving 100 people Ford Fiestas for six months and then they have missions to complete each month and they make videos about the missions. Could that sentence have been less articulate? It's all these bugs in my teeth and the wind in my hair and the smell of gasoline that's making me kind of dumb but also road savvy. Also I got a hair cut yesterday and I'm pretty sure they trimmed some IQ points off the end of my hair. That's where intelligence resides, right? In split ends? Anyway, to enter the contest (and they reached out to me because I have a such an impressive web presence and I'm the queen of social media, of course. Also because I shove videos down your throat. Also because I have a camera?) you have to make a video explaining why they should pick you. Here's my entry. Please love it.

If I had a Ford Fiesta, I would totally give it to you!

OMG Alison. Did the Ford people do some work to remove your video because you were being your usual goofy self, and they determined that your video might not sell the Ford car in the way that they were hoping?

Yes, your video has been removed ;)

I laughed. I cried. I bought a pair of novelty glasses. I found the intro and general concept to be very funny, but I didn't once see you check your side mirrors or use your turn signal. Tsk Tsk.

In an attempt to accurately capture the driving experience you could try talking on your cell phone while drinking from a large beverage container with a precariously fastened lid.

Would they give you free entry into the contest if your a Japanese American whose last name is Toyota and first name Chevy ?

I thought there would be thousands of entries, but I did a YouTube search for "fiestamovement" and only got 385 results. A search for "fiesta movement" got 412.

Why aren't more people entering?

Trapp said...

Nice vlog. Comments on the screen approach is perfect for you. I like the music. Where is it from?

Looking forward to helicopter contest.

Having Dustin in the video saying the Ford Fiesta doesn't accelerate very fast probably won't help your cause of endearing yourself to the contest promoters.

Anyway, I thought you'd like to know some chick is hating on you and Michelle Collins over at Activity Pit in a General Discussion thread.

This was your best video ever.

Ted from Accounting said...

That was fucking funny! Okay, we can double date in the Fiesta....I'll take Alison and Joe can take Dustin! Deal!?!?!?

Prototype 3: Rise of the Machine said...

Encore, encore!

That was a great video clip.

You think based on the captions Ford got the idea that you really, really want them to give you a car?

Interesting music selection there. Gots a western theme to it, which is totally the opposite of a fiesta.

All right, signing off till Wednesday. Although I'll probably hit up the Apple store in the mall and hit up some Wi-Fi hotspots or internet cafe while I'm there. Ah what am I saying, not like anyone gives a damn. Catch y'all on the flip side!

Hey the video is there now. I laughed, it was cute. If Ted is dating Alison, and Joe is dating Dustin (I'm not sure Joe and Dustin are a good match), I wanna date Alison's plant. At least I know the plant kisses on the first date.

To which I say... Dustin is kinda cute, so I'm totally down with it. But just some advance warning, Ted, that at some point I'm going to want to swap partners with you. Believe me, no one guy can handle Ali Ro all by himself. The roadside is littered with guys who have tried.

Ted from Accounting said...

Don't worry Joe....my cousins Bert and Ernie warned me about her....but the opportunity to role in a Fiesta is irresistible!

Alison - would you really tell us if you DID have a boyfriend? I wonder if the following would decline!

A girlfriend on the other hand....

Trapp said...

Way to go, guys. Proto says goodbye, and we're all like, "yeah, yeah, yeah..."

Have a good trip, man!

Ted from Accounting said...

Geraldo / Trapp, I didn't realize that Rise of the Machines was the latest version of Prototype Demo 2.0!

I'm still slightly hung-over!

God speed at those Internet Cafes Version 3!

I understand THAT you are not with dreamy Dustin Goot, but you haven't explained WHY you are not with Dustin Goot. You are both attractive and seem to share a sense of humor.
