Need For Speed: Most Wanted TV Ad: The Classic Showdown

Need for Speed: Most Wanted is coming. And after watching this new live action TV ad, you'll be more ready than ever to race.

If you're into hot cars and the whole concept of pursuit, and you just so happen to like the idea of a modern high-noon, very cowboy-esque standoff between racers and cops, this is the two-minute vid for you.

The combined cost of those cars is a little mind-boggling. If EA is done using them for their promotional purposes, I'd be happy to take one or two off their hands. I mean, they're used now, right? Anyway, Most Wanted lands on October 30 and it features an open city format (similar to Burnout Paradise) and - one would assume - all the awesome cars you see in this ad. By the way, that song reminds me of "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air;" it was in the episode where Will and Carlton dance to it in a talent show. ...yeah, I'm probably older than you. So?

I'll tell you what Ben, I'll take the Cobra and the F-150 Raptor, you can have the rest.

I don't know that song, but I used to know the theme song to French Prince word for word. It's so weird when you start to feel old.

Every time someone references the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, I can't help but be reminded of Jimmy Fallon singing it as Neil Young!

Is this a marketing for Ford? Either that, or that's a special Ford Focus. It's a bit odd to see a Focus amongst all those triple-digit cars.

It's a Ford Focus ST (something like 250 hp and 270 lb.ft of torque)

Yeah, well, it's still silly. I don't care what Focus it is; it isn't beating a Ferrari and a Lambo. In ANYTHING.

I'd take the Bugatti Vyron & the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor, but don't smash them up first please.

Damn, look at that classic Shelby, I don't know what year model I'm guessing '67. I would see myself having a good time passing all those exotic cars with the Shelby. Heck I would love'em all except their is going to be some cars I will hate.

Hey Theverdin,
What's your pic of?

I can't size it bigger to see & I hate to say it but it sorta looks like Sackboy standing next to the head of a trouser snake, LOL
