CONTEXT / BACKGROUND
The Fiesta Movement is back, and the new agents are ready for some action. Fiesta Movement Chapter 2 has 20 teams of two agents bringing the 2011 Fiesta to life through missions inspired by the new small car from Ford. A natural progression from phase one of the Fiesta Movement, missions will be centered on each team’s city, with agents tapping into their local communities to help execute and promote missions.
Fiesta marks the spot
Fiesta Movement agents are ready to kick-start their adventure, and their first mission has them showing off why Fiesta is all about urban adventure. Agent teams will create a wallscape mural that doubles as a functional guide to their 10 favorite places and activities that make their city buzz. Many teams have partnered with local artists and graphic designers to bring their map to life.
The mural will be in place for three weeks and during that time each agent team will host an event at one of the featured locations, where the community can meet the agents and fellow Fiesta Movement followers. Followers will be able to check in at the wall mural and each of the 10 locations via FourSquare. Each mural will also be tagged with a unique SMS code, which fans and followers can text for more information.
Throughout the mission, agents will document their adventure and post it on their team page where fans and followers can be part of the experience online at www.fiestamovement.com. The best content will be recognized based on community engagement and online consumer interaction and will then be amplified locally and nationally.

Going on sale this summer, the all-new Ford Fiesta features a vibrant design, sharp reflexes, and a global track record that will redefine U.S. small car customers’ expectations. With 15 class-exclusive technologies and projected best-in-class highway fuel economy of 40 mpg, Fiesta brings efficiency and convenience together in one package.
Fiesta is designed to be versatile, personal and adaptable. In fact, Fiesta will deliver best-in-class convenience and connectivity with Ford segment-exclusive SYNC® voice-activated communications system, as well as an expressive color palette and available graphics.
Already more than 9,000 consumers have made reservations for the Ford Fiesta – half of them from non-Ford customers – and more than 100,000 handraisers are showing an interest in the new fuel-efficient car. Customers can begin placing orders for the new Fiesta today through their local Ford dealer.
“This mission clearly displays how Fiesta Movement Chapter 2 bridges the offline and online communities. People around town will get to check out the wallscape, and online followers can take part in the action, too.”
