GM-Trucks.com loves to report the results of the various J.D. Power awards. Why not? The GM brands, and Chevy in particular, tend to kick butt in the awards, outscoring premium brands every time and seem to always top Ford and Ram. Even better, the GM-Trucks.com membership like to cut up the awards in the commentary. Maybe we are late to the party, but we recently discovered the unedited versions of Chevy's advertisements showing the "real people" that Chevy shows off its trophy case to. Watch the video and you will see what we mean.

 

If you like the J.D. Power award video you may also like this one about the mystery car that looks exactly like a Chevy Malibu.  

 

Author's note: Having grown up in "Medfid" Mass., the real person named Mahk in the video is every guy I grew up with.

I shared this on Facebook yesterday, and I got a good laugh out of it. Being serious though, these commercials are terrible and they make me cringe.

I ain't no marketing specialist by all means.

But I know that commercials like this turn me away.

This guy towards the end of the video, kneeling in front of the truck, kissing the bumber? Seriously?

This is soo bad... :idiot:

GM needs to step their marketing game up.  These spoofs portray my thoughts of these commercials perfectly.

GM needs to give "us" 100k to make a commerical, decided by the GMTC community. Then they bring the cameras, and film what we do. Part of it would be driving over those trophies.

After all, it works.

They made me to remember this commercial and I even posted a link.

Inked into my brain. Not in a good way, though.
