After seven years, Ford is parting ways with its rough-and-tumble spokesperson, Mike Rowe.
Well known for his work on the Discovery Channel in shows like Dirty Jobs and Deadliest Catch, Rowe has voiced and starred in all manner of Ford commercials for the past several years. While pitching Ford cars and trucks never required him to clean out a barn or wade through sewage, he brought the voice of experience to the job, normally working with tougher vehicles like the F-150 and the Mustang.
Rowe said that he and the blue oval are “going in different directions” and that he wishes the Dearborn automaker “every possible success that any car company could ever have.” We’ll miss Rowe’s rugged charm, but with the way Ford is churning out revolutionary automobiles lately, we have no doubt that Mike’s wish will come true.
