Ford honors Chinese Year of the Horse with Vaughn Gittin Jr., Mustang video

Calendar years and fiscal years tend to be the only timetables automakers concern themselves with, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t recognition of other measures of time. Ford has opted to observe the Chinese zodiac, largely because the Year of the Horse ended just last week.

That’s fortuitous timing, considering the first Ford Mustangs were making their way towards the People’s Republic as celebrations were carrying on. To recognize this fact, and the end of the Year of the Horse, Ford recruited drift king Vaughn Gittin, Jr., to take a 2015 Mustang GT to the streets of Ordos City, in north-central China.

It’s not as dramatic as some of Ford’s recent videos, like the one starring Ken Block and the Ford Focus RS, but it’s pretty cool all the same. Take a look.
