Commercial Break: Meet Doug - Ford's new puppet spokesman
Our favourite advert character of 2010 was the Old Spice Guy, but time moves on and things change and he’s dead to us now. Because in 2011, it’s all about Doug.
He’s the new marketing spokesman for Ford Focus in the United States of A and he’s... erm, a puppet. With a lot of inappropriate thoughts and something lacking in the social skills department. He might also be an illegal immigrant. But he makes us giggle.
In the first three Doug films, we see him getting a guided tour of the Focus before hosting a fairly disastrous press conference at the launch of the car. Hopefully there’s more to come from Doug – we’ll keep you posted.
