Valentine’s Day Movie Features the Ford Transit Connect
Brian Daly, a member of Ford Global Brand Entertainment (FGBE), said that after reading the script he immediately saw the Transit Connect as a prefect fit for the ‘role.’
“We knew that the character of the florist was going to be a passionate entrepreneur, and since the Transit Connect is smaller than the typical cargo van, it conveys that ‘small business’ message to the viewer,” said Daly. “We took it over to Warner Bros., and the production crew fell in love with it.”
The Transit Connect featured in the movie is painted powder-puff pink and sports design patterns of the fictitious Los Angeles florist Siena Bouquet.
The film follows the lives of ten people in Los Angeles who intersect on Valentine's Day. Some will find romance in their relationship, and others will feel the heartbreak of ending a relationship.
“The delivery of flowers is one of the threads that ties all of the characters in the movie together,” added Daly. “This film is heavily character-driven, so this is one of the few opportunities for a vehicle in the film to be showcased.”
