I should have clarified that I loathe those scripted Chevy commercials because they have the faux “real people” disclaimer. We are spoon fed so much unreality in advertising, and it’s easy to swallow, unthinking, if you’re not hyper-vigilant. Advertising has become tremendously deceptive over the years and is, I think, a contributing factor to people’s receptivity to faux news. Fox News, for example, is no better than the Chevy commercials. All deception and manipulation.
Enty, thanks for sharing. Those carefully-scripted-to-hit-every-talking-point (“it’s a game changer!) Chevy commercials make my skin crawl every time I see one. Watched several of the Zebra Corner vids and they are right on target.
He makes a good point about ‘Initial Quality award’. WTF is that anyway???
Is this guy related to Matt Damon? He looks likes him.
I effing HATE those commercials (love my Malibu, but hate those commercials). The acting is so bad.
I’ve always hated that commercial. It looks like the kind of self absorbed shit they make you watch during quarterly companywide meetings.
Well, maybe that’s because too many people in modern-day advertising are hipsters (they like to call themselves ‘creatives’, though). No longer is advertising run by classy people like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJzBTekxKWo
Not all advertising people I know are pretentious jerks, though… I know a few decent human beings who work in advertising.
And at least not everyone’s wearing white in this one like in those pretentious Dove commercials.
The last line is cracking me up, thank you, very much needed a cackle today.
One of those “real people” in the Chevy commercials was a contestant on The Bachelor.
Are you for real? Which person? And which season of the “The Bachelor”? You mean one of the women was a contestant?
I love the “Bostan Accent” on the jerk guy!
Reminds me Mark Wahlberg. Or some other guy from “Entourage”.
I miss Mystery Science Theatre, wish we had it for everything on TV – this guy could heckle car commercials.
PK. THAT was funny…
Humour is clearly subjective. This was not funny.
OK not PK… Der.
