When driving home from class this past Saturday, I noticed a car I had never seen before.
Normally that wouldn’t at all be surprising, and I am not that educated when it comes to the monstrous beasts (believe me when I say, they might as well work by magic).
But now that aside is done, let me begin my story.
I had just merged on a rather popular interstate highway, when I noticed this car. A Ford C-Max. Much like the one below…
The only difference being the one I saw was dark purple. So far this story is not that interesting or entertaining. But then I saw another directly in front of that one. Except it was purple, just like that fucking dinosaur I’m sure we all remember so well. but if you don’t let me give you a brief introduction…
Ewwwww. Now that the “video” has finished let me continue my strange little story.
However let you give you a brief recap… I enter the interstate highway and see a vehicle (Ford C-Max) that I’ve never seen before. It was dark purple…
Directly in front of that one was a purple Ford C-Max…
Okay still not entirely strange. But then I noticed there was yet another Ford C-Max in front of that one… A blue one. Still noticing nothing too strange, I light a smoke and continue on my journey home, and as I round a curve I notice yet another C-Max… This time in green.
I look at the cars in a line to verify that I am in fact not crazy and my brain was just telling me the wrong color (or the paint job that actually changed colors). Sure enough there were four of them in a row, (from back to front) colored dark purple, purple, blue, and green.
I look forward down the line of cars in the lane and notice a yellow car. I can only guess that it was yet another Ford C-Max… Except this one was following an orange one which in turn was following a red one…
My thoughts start reeling… Am I truly looking at a rainbow created by Ford C-Max vehicles?
Yes, yes I am…
And then I notice something else…
They all change lanes at the exact same time, would all turn on or off headlamps at the exact same second, and change speeds at the same rate and time.
Okay, so I saw 7 Ford C-Max cars just so happening to make a rainbow… Big deal. But then something surprising happened…
The red one changed lanes, and reduced speed. As soon as the yellow car was in front, it also switched lanes. This continued happening until they were all in the reverse order (from first to last: dark purple, purple, blue, green, yellow, orange, red).
Finally, after following closely behind for 15 minutes, the take an exit not to be seen again.
It kinda made a rather shitty day, a little less gay… Somehow.
Either way, kinda cool marketing/sales strategy.
