'American Idol' 2011 Ford Mustang Commercial Is Here

The 2011 Ford Mustang. We’ve reviewed it. It’s heading to dealers right now. Buzz could not be greater. And then there’s the marketing behemoth known as “American Idol.” It’s doubtful that too many AI viewers are the right demographic for the new Mustang, but with nearly 20 million viewers each week — many likely against their will — there’s bound to be a good number of people who will be impressed by such an ad.

Above is a one-minute version of the spot, which debuts tonight during the AI results show. We’ll note we’re not sure the music is synched up right at the beginning, but otherwise it appears to be the real deal and was promoted via the Ford Mustang Facebook page. Overall, it’s the type of car commercial that muscle car fans will enjoy.
