Ford Performance Relieves Stress with Speed Therapy
Ford Raptor, Edge ST, Shelby GT350 Mustang and GT supercar give people the drive of their lives.
The video above comes to us from the Ford Performance YouTube channel and it showcases the Motor Company’s unique form of therapy. With help from the F-150 Raptor, the Shelby GT350 Mustang, the Edge ST and the modern GT supercar, Ford brightens up the days of several regular people who could use a boost. After all, anyone with a performance vehicle will tell you that few things can get your mind off of the problems of daily life like some quality time behind the wheel.
Dealing with Stress
This Ford video begins with an array of regular people talking about their lives, their difficulties and the aspects of life that create stress. Some of them have stressful home lives while others have stressful jobs, but in the case of each individual being interviewed in the big, open warehouse, they could all use some stress relief.
That is where Ford Performance comes into play with their “Speed Therapy” campaign. As each interviewee finishes up their story, a high performance vehicle comes tearing into the warehouse with a trained stunt driver at the wheel. At first, it seems as though these folks are going to get to ride along with the stunt driver, but they are actually the ones in control of these powerful machines.
Speed Therapy in Motion
The vehicles included in the Speed Therapy program include a red F-150 Raptor, a white Shelby GT350 Mustang, a blue Edge ST and a white GT supercar. The Raptor is playing in the sand while the Shelby, the GT and the Edge are being tossed around a road course. In each case, the stunt driver is providing instruction to help the “patient” get the most from their stress relief.
In the end, each person gets out of the high performance Ford vehicle in a far better mood than when they climbed into the driver’s seat, showing that spirited driving really does lift the spirits.
