The Ford Flex is Made for Bacon

October 18, 2008 9:31 am Published by 7 Comments

The word on the street is that Detroit has lost touch with their auto-buying customers. People claim that American cars aren’t reliable and don’t have the features today’s drivers demand.

We saw an ad for the Ford Flex recently and thought…maybe it’s all in the marketing.

Take for example the available “refrigerated console”. In Ford’s official photographs they show the console holding a whopping THREE cans of nondescript cola. Great, that means one can for mom and the 2.5 kids will have to split the others. Sorry dad, you’re out of luck. (CORRECTION: Scott Monty of Ford Motor Company let us know that 7 cans of your favorite beverage can fit in the refrigerated console – its actually quite deep. That’s great news for bacon lovers…more cans = more bacon!)

Now if we were in charge of Ford’s marketing we would suggest that we really go after a niche audience — like bacon lovers! We doctored up this version of the “refrigerated console” and I think you’ll agree the Ford Flex is now worthy of our attention.

Do you think the local Ford dealer will let me stuff raw bacon into the refrigerated console during the test drive? I mean, the spec sheet doesn’t say how much bacon will fit in there…

    Mmmm imagine the warm smell of bacon every time you start your car.

  • Nice. If you bring a small microwave, you can actually plug it into one of the AC jacks in the back seat and cook that bacon up. Bonus if you take a video of it.

    Actually, the fridge can accommodate up to 7 cans of your favorite beverages. Only 3 cans show at the top – it’s actually deeper.

    Awesome idea Scott. We were thinking maybe an electric griddle for a sizzling bacon tailgate party. Dang, now I want to go test drive a Flex!

    Now if the flex is a diesel, it could have a built in cooker that cooks your bacon and sends the grease directly into the gas tank to power the engine. you arrive at your destination with freshly cooked bacon, get more MPG, and your exhaust will smell like, (you guessed it) bacon.

    Mark, you are a genius! I hope Ford looks into the self-powered-bacon-cooking-vehicle concept — and soon! 🙂
