Chevrolet Super Bowl 46 Commercial – ‘Best Gift Ever’ Video and Review

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.
