You want to make the dreary new MkV Escort seem exciting and desirable? Then you obviously get Brian May involved... don’t you? Using a version of his 1991 single ‘Driven by You’ featuring new lyrics, you get a one-and-a-half-minute extravaganza of May vocals and guitar solos, along with brief glimpses of the Sierra, MkIII Granada and latest Orion. ‘We build for the country’s needs... wheels turn, power at your feet’, sings May.
