Hey guys. I noticed today that in the new Burger King ad with the Cat in the Hat, there is a rear shot of the cat in the hat's "rocket car" in the drive through line. Well the car BEHIND, the cat's car is what looks like a Gen 2 white Taurus. I know it's white, and it definitely has the Ford Logo, and I'm pretty sure it's a Gen 2. Oh well. It's a taurus, so it's all cool.

I saw it. Yeah, it was definatly a gen 2. You ever notice how advertisers subtly sneak the Taurus in commercials?

I sure do. And I'm just surprised how many Gen1's and 2's are still being seen in commercials/TV/movies, for being as old as they are.

I think they use taureses as props because they're cheap and readily available. Also, they're a family car so they promote the idea of family. Like "bring the kids to burger king, yada yada yada".

Man, ain't that the truth. And of course here I am epitomizing there commercial considering I go to AutoZone exclusively unless they don't have it, whether it be for the Taurus or the Scirocco.

Theres one here in Ca that has multiple shots of a g4 for an insurance commercial. The insurance guys are driving it around while all these durby cars get smashed up. It's the only one that makes it out of all the wrecks. It's a silver g4 with the Duratec and a black leather interior.

There is also a blue gen 4 the men are driving in the new McDonalds McGriddles commercial.

I think I saw a G3 in that Jack In the Box "Deli" commercial. It's in the part where he askes that guy "Dude! Could you score me some cole slaw?"

Hey guys -- just spotted a G4 Silver in the Peak Antifreeze commercial. Along with an F-150.


EDIT >>> Oh yeah, in a movie I was watching on the ABC Family channel called "Picking up & Dropping off", the beginning shows the main character trying to drive around a .... very dirty G4. (Jeremy would not have been proud!)

This is and onld one, but I just watched T3 on DVD last night. First the guy's Gen 1 gets rear-ended by a Toyota Tundra, then a few minutes later it gets crushed by a huge crane truck thing. Good special effects, but I wouldn't watch it again.

saw that in the theater, I was embarrest when I made an audible expression of dissaprovement in their choice for acar to destroy. scared teh crap out of me actually, because it looked irrily like an SHO. I think there is a gen II SHO in the movie also, in the line of cars that the crane is destroying, but the clip of the movie ends before it got hit, if it even did, looked like it was out of harms way. haha I am such a nerd

In gov't class the other day, my teacher showed us Christmas Vacation. I'm sure everyone knows about the Griswold's good ol' front-wheel-drive sleigh, but that's besides the point. Anways, my teacher taped this a long time ago (back when Roseanne and Coach used to be the big TV shows on ABC). During the first commercial break, what do I see? A Ford Taurus commercial! It was a red Gen 2 and they were talking about it! the commercial seemed to be aimed at the average person who goes to work in an office. Pretty cool stuff.
