Queen Latifah Is The Mustang Queen of the Road
The campaign is asking people to describe their ultimate Mustang dream experience in 250 words or less, and Ford will select the top six most creative ideas in order to make their dreams come true.
Not only a proud owner of a ‘65 Mustang, but Queen Latifah always dreamed of driving a 2010 Ford Mustang like a Pro in the extended music video for her new song “Fast Cars".
“There are certain cars throughout history that have their own identity. They become synonymous with feeling and energy, an event in your life,” says Latifah. “A Mustang is a Mustang; the car is timeless.”
Therefore, Ford decided to fulfill her wish and set her up for a racetrack experience, under the guidance of the professional race car driver Colin Braun. The 20-year-old NASCAR gave Latifah the pro driving lesson that she always wanted, helping her to unleash her Mustang side, while also having a lots of fun.
The three (Braun, Latifah and the 2010 Mustang) met up at the New Jersey Motorsports Park, where, after Braun gave her a few hot laps, she took her own helmet, got behind the wheel, and said “It’s time to conquer this track!” ... and so she did.
“I’ve been a little jealous of people riding around town with their Mustangs,” Latifah said. “Now I got one. No more jealousy. They can eat my dust.”
