Ford, Australia, and a Talking Car
We have learned throughout time that being able to talk to our technology and have it talk back, like in the case with Apple’s Siri, is not always fool proof and can sometimes end up being more of a hindrance than a help. But what if technology like that used with Siri could eventually expand to bigger technology, like, let’s just say, a car? Maybe even have it go as far as the vehicle can not only speak, but it has a personality of its own? At Shults Ford of Harmarville, we know that you probably already think of your Ford as part of your family, but if it had its own personality, it truly would seem to be like one of your very own.
While something like that might be a few years down the road from turning into reality, we can still toy with the idea. Ford Australia decided to pull the classic talking car prank and Aussie’s reactions were priceless.
In a new commercial for the Ford EcoSport compact crossover, those from Down Under seem pretty calm about holding a conversation with a randomly parked talking car, even when they are asked to get in the car, call a celebrity, and tell that celebrity a joke. Check out the video below for some great takes of this “talking” car and those unsuspecting individuals that get the chance to interact with it.
