Ford Falcon EcoBoost: promo video canes toad

A week after the launch of the new Ford Falcon EcoBoost comes a humorous new online ad for the car.

The video shows two cane toads, considered pests in Australia, having a discussion on a road. They notice a car approaching but despite their uncannily accurate guess of a four-cylinder motor, the unexpected performance of Ford’s new 179kW/353Nm 2.0-litre EcoBoost engine leaves one of them significantly worse for ware.


The campaign clearly supports Ford’s view that the four-cylinder has almost as much grunt as the six-cylinder while being more fuel efficient, presenting owners with the opportunity to squish far more cane toads between fuel stops.
