Big Block directorial duo Josh + Vince directed “The Ultimate Driving Challenge,” a humorous Mother’s Day tribute for Ford crafted by agency Team Detroit. Ford is highly engaged with its community of Ford owners; Ford’s social media is rich with stories and photos that resemble generations of family albums.

The concept for this year’s Mother’s Day tribute came from Team Detroit with the idea that moms are the best drivers and that Ford builds cars that are up for any challenge. The “Day in the Life” themed video proves that from snack time to playtime, the mother of all driving challenges is something to be reckoned with. Josh + Vince were tapped to direct because of their long track record of eliciting witty and organic reactions from everyday people.
