Another car company strikes it big with a hilarious ad. This time, it’s Chevrolet with a graduate who gets very excited about his graduation gift, only his parents can’t bear to tell him the truth.
Here is the video:
Chevy really nailed this one.
The graduate reacts about like I would when he thinks he got a bright yellow new Camaro for his graduation present. The parents are really to blame though, because you couldn’t pick a worse spot to put that mini-fridge. Plus, a blindfold for a gift like that? They should buy him a Lamborghini just for being so misleading.
The graduate does a good job of going sufficiently berserk during the commercial, so high marks for that. The jogger was downright hilarious too (“Hey jogger! slayed me). I do question the graduate’s engagement, though. I would think a young, single guy would want to use that car to his advantage for at least a little while. Plus, once he’s married and has some kids he would have to sell it and get a minivan.
One thing I can’t shake while watching this commercial is the uneven ratio of hotness between the guy’s parents. The mom is pretty attractive for a mom, and it seems like the dad must have really married out of his league.
