While watching my beloved Oakland Athletics in the playoffs, I saw a Chevy ad that ties in America and patriotism to a new Silverado. The ad is disgusting, to say the least. There’s some nice country music and patriotic shots of Rosa Parks, MLK, Katrina, 9/11, and others. Stirring stuff. Then right at the end they slip in a Silverado, as if we are supposed to make the association between America and a light-duty full-size truck. Not to mention the car only gets 15-19 miles to the gallon, and something tells me 19 is being generous.
I will never buy a Chevy product. Sorry.
