Vaughn Gittin Jr, a world champion drifter, kicked off Ford Mustang’s “10 Unleashed” campaign by taking the car to drift the streets of Japan.
Now, during the tenth and final installment of Unleashed, Gittin is teaming up with Steve Wyrick, a famous Las Vegas magician, to perform one of the biggest illusions to hit the Las Vegas strip.
“My grandfather’s prize possession in life was a 1970 Mustang Mach 1, one of the sickest cars you could imagine,” said Wyrick. “Knowing of my grandfather’s love for the Mustang, I wanted to incorporate the 2010 Mustang into one of my acts and unleash my Mustang side by performing one of my biggest illusions yet on the Las Vegas Strip.”
Imagine Wyrick shackled by police in the middle of the strip, while Gittin races down the strip in a silver 2010 Mustang.
“Our goal was to make the final ’10 unleashed experience something truly unforgettable,” said Steve Ling, N.A. car marketing manager, Ford Motor Company. “To have Vaughn race down the Las Wegas Stip in Spellbinder after kicking off the campaign by drifting the Mustang around Japan was a perfect ending to a great campaign.”
To watch Wyrick, Gittin and the 2010 Mustang perform the seemingly impossible on the Las Vegas Strip, check out the video that includes behind-the-scenes footage from the shoot:
