Ford Brazil has just launched an extraordinary marketing campaign to launch the new Fusion locally. They just went out and got not just two World Champions, but one of the greatest rivalries in F1 history – Nelson Piquet v. Nigel Mansell. They are launching it over a month-long web series with weekly episodes. Awesome stuff. Here’s what’s been released so far.
Episode 1: The Encounter
Episode 2: The Car
Oh, and in case you’re wondering, English subtitles are available. You just need to turn them on from the YouTube bar.23rd January 2013, 8:29 at 8:29 am #224247Keith CollantineKeymaster
That’s fantastic, great find @Journeyer! I love all the little jibes about each other in the second video.23rd January 2013, 9:41 at 9:41 am #224248BullfrogParticipant
Great ads, keep ’em coming here as they release new ones. Hehe, Noige looks a bit ridiculous in the first one.
Here in Europe they’ve delayed production of those for a year, while Ford Brazil can not only afford to launch them but pay two world champion-sized fees too!23rd January 2013, 21:23 at 9:23 pm #224249Gabriel FernandoParticipant

There’s a nice website to go with this web series: http://static.novofusion.com.br/fusiongp/home.php24th January 2013, 23:23 at 11:23 pm #224251vinicius.jlantunesParticipant
This website has some pictures taken after the race, showing they made contact :-)
It says Mansell touched the rear of Piquet’s car, then Piquet put him off track after hitting him on the left.30th January 2013, 9:50 at 9:50 am #224252JourneyerParticipant

The fourth and last episode is up! And the winner is… Piquet!
I guess Mansell didn’t like very much the way Nelson managed to get this win…
