I think I saw the same commercial.
I was flipping channels, as usual, when I fell into MTV's most expensive videos countdown. The very next commercial break started with a young woman being berated by her peers and elders for not buying a "sensible" car. Anyhoo, I guess the reason they were riding her was because she opted for the perfectly annointed 2000 Mercury Cougar. Nice commercial.
(BTW, the most expensive video ever made is Michael Jackson's Scream $7.5 Million.)

THAT'S THE ONE!!!!!!!!!! It was corny, but at least it exists.

My girlfriend said she saw it too. I guess FMC took our advice and actually made a commercial for the Cat. Its about time!!

That commercial has been around for a long time on MTV. I believe I posted that I saw this commerical about 2 or 3 CSG topics ago; before we came over to the Owner's Club...

I thought I remembered reading something about a commercial on MTV, then it went into a rhetoric about whether MTV had changed and that VH1 was better these days.
It was that same commercial though?

Catscratch (post #168) Can you tell me the name and city of the dealer you visited? All of the Special Edition's should have the Cougar in the back glass (note that it is very subtle, it is not big and ugly). Let me know so I can follow up. Thanks.
#191 of 1081 Cargo net + CD/cassette combo + icoll ection

I'm picking up my kitty this week, and I'm wondering if I should put a cargo net in. What's involved? Can I order one from that icollection web site that was mentioned a while back, or do I need to get this from the dealer? Also, for some reason, CarOrder actually gave me the CD/cassette combo for free when all I wanted was the single CD. malibu, you said you were replacing yours? Any particular reason? I've heard some people talk about the new Aiwa and Kenwood decks that play MP3s; anyone put one of those in your kitty?

Regarding the front mask, you don't have to buy both pieces (hood & bumper cover for $100). You can get just the hood cover (it's called the mini mask front end cover for $54.67). It looks really cool.
If you've seen a picture of the mini mask, the new one is a little different. The old one wrapped all the way down to the wheel well. The new one that I have attaches to the front tip of the hood only. You can open and close the hood without removing or disconnecting the mini mask. And did I mention that it looks really cool!!!

It seems kinda odd that FMC would start putting commercials of the 2000 Cougar now when the '01 is only a month or two away.
MWS, do you know if Ford is planning on advertising the '01 Cougar? Hey man, at least advertise the Cougar S.
If Ford doesn't wanna spend money advertising the Cougar, I got another suggestion. On the next James Bond movie, I'd like to see him driving a Cougar with a 4.6 V8. Imagine all the gizmos you can put on that Cat. Hmmmm!! Put the Cougar in a movie--that's better than any advertisement in MTV.
Just curious, but how many people in here actually watch MTV? I don't. Could it be that Ford is advertising in the wrong place??

Jdice: I can feel your excitement on getting your cat! You will love it. I have a client that ownes an Alpine Stereo store and he put the system in our boat and in our F350, he will give me a great deal on a system with a changer. The stock one isn't bad in my opinion, just want something a little louder with a changer.
Dasaint1: I will check into the mask info....THANKS! The commercial described above is the same one my daughter saw, I tried watching MTV to see it, but couldn't handle it that long.
