    The Ford Commercials

    Last weeks was by far the best since the show started..."no parking on the dance floor"......Last night's reminded me of a early 80's music video...real cheesy... Does anyone know if the Idols get paid extra for each commercial they do? To be in a nationwide primetime major advertiser (Ford) on the highest rated program must get you major $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ !

    I agree the 'No Parking on the Dance Floor' was the best one yet. I really have no idea how much they make, if any, for the commercials.

    I thought someone said they do not get paid. Although I thought they would get union minium wage. 'No Parking on the Dance Floor" was good! Although my all time favorite was with Ruben, Clay, Kimberly, and others in the "Pimp" like format!!

    I thought the mini-idols the other day was pretty cute, too. The best was when Nadia and Bo were pulling on the tie. Very entertaining!

    I think in general the Ford commercials are incredibly cheesy and stupid...

    J. Walter Thompson does Ford's advertising....if their big-money fingers are all over these cheesy commercials...perhaps Ford should look for another big time agency. Guess it is not too easy though to place 12, 11, 10 and so on singers in a commercial and have it look like the Super Bowl ads.

    Especially this past week when they did "All Star" by Smashmouth... imo they sounded like the "American Jrs." or the kids that sing on the "Kids Bop" CD's.

    I like the commercials but it doesn't make me want to buy a Ford.

    I agree. I wonder how the contestants feel about doing these videos.
    A recent survey stated that the average person's greatest fear is having to give a speech in public. Somehow this ranked even higher than death which was third on the list. So, you're telling me that at a funeral, most people would rather be the guy in the coffin than have to stand up and give a eulogy.
