Ford thinks those boomer memes will make you purchase EVs

Spread the love



You’d assume that Ford’s Mach-Eau perfume, a fragrance that imitates the smell of petrol — designed for all those that need to move electrical with the Mustang Mach-E, however merely CAN’T LIVE with out the intoxicating odor of fuel — will be the corporate’s maximum WTF EV advertising ever. 

However… you’d be mistaken.

Concentrated on EV skeptics, the automaker has posted a sequence of memes on Twitter in an try to spotlight EV qualities and advertise its personal electrical automobiles, I suppose?

Admittedly, a few of them are beautiful humorous and light-hearted:

I imply, I’m utterly this “Aunt Suze” on the Christmas desk. Take a look at those two as smartly:

Yeah, the pony meme may be very amusing and presentations one large benefit of EV riding — I imply, who hasn’t carried out solos of their automotive?

The second one meme, alternatively, is surroundings a odd tone that will get much more intense within the following tweets, the place issues begin to get bizarre and, would possibly I say, judgemental.


One meme makes amusing of people that declare they’d omit to price their EV in a single day, even though they wouldn’t omit to price their different digital units like telephones and watches.


Every other mocks those that make brief day-to-day journeys, however nonetheless fear {that a} 250km vary wouldn’t be sufficient. And one goals American customers for who prefer the similar previous SUVs, as a substitute of falling in love with the “outstanding efficiency” Mustang Mach-E.

The issue with Ford’s memeing technique

Neatly, I wouldn’t say that insulting or criticizing doable consumers as a result of they nonetheless have reservations or nonetheless don’t know so much about EVs will assist them come to a decision to head electrical.

Plus, during the memes there’s a transparent difference between “us” (the individuals who love EVs and EVs themselves) and “you” (the individuals who nonetheless withstand for no explanation why).

Don’t get me mistaken right here, social media engagement is an effective business plan — I simply don’t assume that “competitive” memes will persuade somebody to shop for an EV, let by myself memes that fail to construct sure emotions of harmony and belonging. 

That stated, I do like Ford’s Mustang Mach-E and I beef up automakers’ efforts to push in opposition to an electrical long run — in spite of everything, SHIFT is backed through an electrical automotive logo.

Nonetheless, I imagine that with regards to advertising an unfamiliar but product, it’s extra environment friendly to drop the greenback on gross sales tactics that concentrate on offering data and steerage.
