Click above to watch the video after the jump

The Ford Focus is an automotive study in duality. Europeans get a really good, second generation version of Ford's C-segment wunderkind, while motorists here in the U.S. make do with an updated family based on the first-generation model. Actually, we call the second-gen Focus the "Euro" model, but the fact is that most of the free world receives the newer, superior model, while America waits patiently for the 2011 model to come hither. Our Mexican neighbors to the south have nothing to wait for, for in the land of Pancho Villa, the upgraded Focus is the Focus of record.

Beyond the jump
is the latest commercial for the Focus, and it's a good one. For starters, Ford's marketing team chose some sweet tunes for the commercial's sound track. Here's a hint on the song: you'll want to wax vintage automobiles and paint acres of fencing as soon as you hear it.

The commercial appears to be some sort of Skip-Barber-meets-Tim-Burton driving school, with a Bourne Supremacy-style pursuit and an ass-kicking parallel parking job. At the end of the video, members of the Mexico viewing audience gets a quick glimpse of a lime green 2010 Focus RS in all its 300 horsepower glory. Hit the jump to view the video - and if you can't remember where you've heard that soundtrack before, watch the second video as well. Thanks for the tip, Miguel!

It's an awesome video ... and I like the hint of the RS at the end ... does that mean the RS will be manufactured in Mexico also ? ? ? ?

Kinda makes you wonder if they did that ... then they should let it cross the borders.

^^ Hell just rent a uHaul and pull in ...

Oh and don't forget a drape or tarp to cover the hotness ...

and if you really want to throw them off ... Bring some paint ... and paint all over the car and tell them it was in a wreck and you are bringing it in for parts ... then pay a few thousand and get it re-painted ... ... I know I know ... that's extreme.
