Taylor Hicks/Bold Moves for Ford Motors: A Review.

Watching and listening to American Idol winner Hicks "sing" and "dance" (spot) in front of video images of various Ford vehicles makes me wish: 1. Hicks was never born. 2. I was never born. 3. Henry Ford was never born.

man am i glad you posted this. I have so much contempt for his two bit white-soul voice, peppered hair and nausiating 'shirt untucked with blazer' style. Did anyone else fantasize about the Ford suv popping out of the screen behind him and running his ass over?

Ford ads are a contractual obligation of Idol contestants. The few times I saw the show there was always some stupid hastily produced ad (made that week) with the current crop of contestants.

Nothing says "soul" like shilling for Ford.

Sucked. Minute I saw this, I thought he was having a seizure. Quick, someone get him a stick so he doesn't swallow his tongue.

(Just make sure it has a Ford logo on it.)

I was under the delusion that I just couldn't hate American Idol or its participants, hosts, judges, audience, advertisers, fox, tv any more strongly till I saw this piece of garbage. Suffering is a better way to put it then "watching and listening"

He's pointing at himself as if to say, "Look at me, everyone! I'm terrible!

The whole campaign is ludicrous. Fords are bold? You bet. It's the mark of a true iconoclast to tool around in Crown Vic.

If that's their idea of bold, I guess it make sense to put Hicks in the ads.

Oh, that's who that guy is.

I thought it was one of those top-40 country singers.

It's tough deciding which would be worse. Either way, this spot is downright awful.

This commercial rocks! How did they know I love American idol so much I'll do anything they tell me? I'm buying a Ford right now!

A few weeks back I made a very similar comment re: this commercial...yeah, the FREAKS came out of the woodwork to lambaste me. Seriously, American Idol has made a million idiots believe they are repsonsible for this no talent ass clown's success. If that's true, I have a million asses to kick. And as for that dance...it looks like Jay Leno doing the Humpty Dance.

The way he pronounces "possibilites" as "possibiliDies" makes me want to kick him in the shin. It's only a matter of time before he ends up on the Fashion Rocks travesty.
