For all the exploited cheesiness of the 1980s in popular culture, it was a pretty cool decade: fun music, fun teen comedies, and even the rebirth of fun horsepower and performance. And when it came to performance, the Mustang 5.0 was the Tri-Five Chevy of the time. So when we stumbled upon this throwback video with a 2015 Mustang on YouTube, we were left scratching our heads.
We get it—Ford gave someone license to promote the upcoming 2015 Mustang. And the video sure is fun (although, as a child of the 1980s, I gotta admit the nostalgia is a bit too idealized and perfect to feel real). But will the general public remember the Mustang in this video at all? The main focus—the 2015 Mustang—seems to get lost in the haze of dance moves and hair spray.
