    So I don't want to start a war or anything, and I hate saying negative things about GM at any time but I just have to get this off my chest.

    What is the deal with these new silverado commercials? I've shaken my head and asked myself "what the heck was that?" to every single one I've seen so far, but the one that was aired during the Pats vs. Bronco's game topped all of them.

    Yeah…nothing says "man" like tofu and veggie burgers? Maybe I'm missing the bigger picture here….but I think Chevrolet needs a different marketing campaign…because these commercials, at least in my opinion, are flat out embarrassing.

    Here are a few that I could find:

    Unfortunately I couldn't find the one that I just saw….but if any of you were watching the game you know what I'm talking about. I'm sure it will show up on youtube soon…it was bad.

    Perhaps I'm being too critical…what do you guys think? Do you like this campaign thus far?

    This was my favorite GM commercial - what was yours?

    Im not sure of thier whole approach for advertising but theyre really not all that informative. They seem to be just introducing the new silverado this way but giving no information about it or incentives to buy them. I cant say as im embarrased about the ones you posted(no didnt see the one you were talking about)but seems like some wasted advertising money to me. I think it was just a way to get people to relate to situations trucks are used for but its really not "selling" the silverado IMO.

    Oh my gosh I'm so embarrassed……NONE of these commercials make a lick of sense to me….

    The High Country is B.A. though :glasses:

    I just don't understand the whole thing…."a man and his truck, and tofu, and veggie burgers, and raw kale salad….be damned. Introducing the new High Country….."

    What does tofu, veggie burgers, and kale salad have to do with anything? Im just perplexed at these commercials I don't even know what to do other than just laugh at their stupidity :neutral:

    Well like them or not it would appear they did at least part of their job, they caught your attention and they got you talking and spreading the word.

    I'm with you, I sure as hell don't get it. And more importantly, I'm not sure how it makes a man throw down his beer, run the hell out of the house and buy a Chevy... What happened to real commercials that contained scantilly clad women? THAT makes a man buy a truck! :-D
