People have done a lot of things to get the attention of corporations--they've threatened to name their babies Microsoft for cash, while others have even tattooed corporate logos on themselves. Now an American couple have gone and changed their name to honour the company that sponsored they pre-wedding road trip: Ford.

No longer Chris Hodges and Jaime Case, Mr. and Mrs. Ford have given a list of reasons for why they chose to rename themselves ("4. Ford is the only American car company that didn’t take bailout money" or "8. Chris’s mother has an extensive history with Ford"). The real kicker is that the couple have had to return the Ford Fusion they were loaned for their road trip.
