Pulitzer Prize–winning David Mamet?
Yes, Pulitzer Prize–winning David Mamet has directed TWO commercials for Ford.
Car commercials?
Car commercials.

Mamet only directed the commercials. The “dialogue” was apparently written in Mamet’s trademark style by an ad agency.

(Two men, played by Alec Baldwin and William H. Macy, are in a Ford Whateverthefuck. Their hands and shirts are covered in blood. Baldwin is driving. He is trying to beat a stoplight; at the last second it turns red and Baldwin slams on the breaks.)

Baldwin: Fuck.

Macy: Fuck?

B: You heard me.

M: (understanding) Fuck.

B: This car can go faster than a ten-dollar hooker working outside a donut shop.

M: (impressed) Fuck.

B: But, as you can see, it can stop on a dime, too. A--no, not a dime. A nickel. Two pence. A farthing.

M: A farthing. (pause) The fuck's a farthing?

B: Some cocksuckers at Car and Driver tested it; they say it holds up pretty well.

M: (looks at his hands) Just like my poor mother's heart.

B: True story.

Say what you want about the commercials, but at least they don't have Rebecca Pidgeon in them.
