With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, us guys are thinking ‘round the clock what to do with our SOs in order to make them remember this particular date. Although Valentine’s did not have any romantic connotations until Chaucer’s Parlement of Foules poem published in 1382, February 14th is an extremely vital day in the modern era for lovers, florists and merchandisers as well.
FoMoCo didn’t ignore the importance of Saint Valentine, Eros and one little bugger called Cupid and his magical bow and arrow. But there’s quite a big flip side to how the Blue Oval marked this event: the American carmaker didn’t go for the yawner $300+ dinner at a fancy restaurant, but something completely out of the ordinary and just short of 100 percent LOL-worthy: Ford Mustang Speed Dating.

Let me explain: see that pretty blondie in the pic? Her employment contract reads “professional stunt driver.” She may be looking like the prettiest girl next door, but behind those big, enticing eyes and blonde hair lies a full-on professional stunt driver that can hustle a car depending on what the producer and director want. Think of her as a wolf in sheep’s clothing or a petrolhead in pretty girl’s clothing... whatever.

Made in cooperation with The Work, the broadcasting and media production company that prepared the 2016 Chevrolet Volt and 2016 Lincoln MKX Detroit launch events, Ford Mustang Speed Dating starts with our blondie and a number of dudes, having the typical speed date-grade chats in a jazz bar. Truth be told, the Bill Evans-inspired piano music is way more interesting than guys trying to woo our cute stunt driver.

Thank God this scene ends rather quickly. After the typical “Let’s get out of here” moment, our starlet takes her dates, one by one, for a ride in her 435 horsepower, hot red 2015 Ford Mustang GT fastback. Though she pretended at first to not be accustomed to driving a stick shift too well (damsel in distress scenario works every time!), she then unleashes her full professional stunt driver potential in an empty parking lot.

We don’t want to spoil what’s in store for you, nor the reactions of our blondie’s blind dates, but we’ll mention this: one guy says to her “you just ripped the sh*t out of this car!” Now kick back and enjoy!
