Buckle in 'cause you're about to go for a ride.
Starting today, Chrysler Group's Dodge brand kicks off a partnership with the latest installment of Universal Pictures' "Fast Five." The movie will hit the theaters starting April 29 but you -- yes YOU -- can get in on the action starting tomorrow.
Dodge supplied multiple 2010 and 2011 Dodge Charger vehicles used in chase scenes throughout the movie, and is sponsoring a Dodge-Fast Five advertisement that will air for the first time tomorrow during the coveted Final Four advertising space.
While commercials are for watching, there's plenty of opportunities for Dodge and movie fans to really get in on the chase as you can see after this clip from behind the scenes of filming the 'Fast Five." For another clip, see the Pentastar Video YouTube channel. (Note: Post updated 4/5/2011 to switch out the ad with the below clip and a link to another from the movie.)
