I was watching the CBS app last night (cut the cord) and saw a Ford Focus commercial (twice)during an NCIS episode with Link Wray's Rumble as the background music. Way cool tune that has been one of my faves since I first heard it. But a Ford Focus? Not much rumble in one of those.

But I guess that's the point.

If you have a smart TV or smart phone with the free app and/or a device like the Google Chromecast, you can watch TV, Youtube, Amazon TV etc. via streaming. The Google Home app runs everything for you. You can add other apps to Google home such as CBS, NBC, ABC etc. Each network has a certain amount of free viewing plus you can subscribe ($$) and get all the new stuff too. I don't subscribe and just watch the free stuff.

I'd guess this Ford ad is on broadcast too.

When I "cut the cord", I cut the cord.

While not quite up there in Link Wray
Rumble territory, the Ford Focus RS is not exactly your ordinary economy car...

Some other car company is using Motorhead's "Ace of Spades" and a beer company is using the Cramps' song "Ultra Twist."

BobbyMac beat me to it - you must not have driven an RS.

Running a cool song in a commercial does not make your car cool. it's still a Ford.

Years ago Chevrolet ran Linda Ronstadt singing Just One Look in a TV add without buying the rights or competition. Woops but after all it was GM.

Nope, I haven't. I get the RS thang but it's still a Focus.

Indeed, it's still one of the most balanced cars out there, noticeable even in its basic guise.
