I can only assume that GM is trying to break its big dumb macho American Man-Truck image to sell vehicles to urbanites. They clearly haven't done this in a while, or maybe they are using The Gap's ad agency. I don't know.

That was fucking excruciating.

good job GM, spend a lot of wasted marketing funds to try to sell something to an american public who couldn't afford it
either way, hope it made them feel good about failure

Plus one-channel sound is really annoying with headphones. Fuck you in your fat fucking ass, Chevy.

Even the Windows Store Dance didn't do enough to prepare me for how embarrassed I would feel while watching this. Terrible on every possible level. 5 stars.

The folk-lesbian crooning makes me want to buy an SUV. An SUV with machine guns that is powered by foreign brown children.

This is what happens when you place lower than sixth on So You Think You Can Dance.

It could have been a lot better. Apparently this was actually posted by Chevy, so why does it look like it was shot on a cell phone?
What this REALLY needs is Sir Mix A Lot! Yes, that's a reference to the dancer on the left, but the same choreography, the same dancers, maybe even the same fucking words to a hip hop beat, it might have been pretty good. Somebody decided that only a lesbian want to buy an electric car. And that only insipid folkies are lesbians.

Anybody see "Who killed the Electric Car?" How paranoid do I have to be to suspect that this shitty advertising campaign is deliberate sabotage? Are they trying to kill the electric car again?

On November 14, 2006, a documentary film debuted entitled Who Killed the Electric Car?. The subject of the film is the demise of the EV1. Much of the film accounts for GM's efforts to demonstrate to California that there was no demand for their product and then to reclaim every last EV1 and dispose of them. A few vehicles were disabled and given to museums and universities, but almost all were found to have been crushed, or shredded using a special machine, as seen in the documentary. GM responded to the film's claims, laying out several reasons why the EV1 was not commercially viable at the time. One theory discussed in the documentary is that the EV1 program was eliminated because it threatened the oil industry.
A scene from the film depicted a GM advertisement for the EV1, where a solemn voice-over asks questions such as "How does it go without gas and air?" and "How does it go without sparks and explosions?", as the camera panned over disturbing images of a family's shadows cast against a pockmarked concrete surface. The image in the scene was part of a print ad commissioned by GM and executed by design firm Labyrinth Worldwide.
