There Is No Commercial That Drives Me Crazier Than This



How do you want to be remembered? Being a decent person, not a bad guy, or a good friend? Nope. That is not enough. You need a big truck.

The ad firm which created this knows exactly what America is becoming.

If you worry about how you’re remembered, why in God’s name (allah for those of you going to hell) would you write this blog?

I completely agree. Drives me nuts.

Never seen it before but somehow this seems more of a slam against anyone who drives a truck than it does this commercial. It's becoming very clear your disdain for people based on style alone. Such a petty little man!

Agreed. What's sad is that the advertising firm that did this commercial has a research department which told them the voice-over narration would positively connect with viewers

His Johnson was the same size after he bought the truck.

This says a lot about Barry. The intended demographic is 2nd amendment loving, hard working blue collar, pick up truck driving types. Unfortunately the reality is that the entitled, helpless, lazy and white collar corruption types will eventually ruin this country.

IS THIS A TRUCK COMMERCIAL DISGUISED AS A BLOG POST?... WHAT WERE YOU SAYING ABOUT HYPOCRITES?

3:01, so wrong. The intended market for this ad is totally the opposite of what you think. Those people already buy trucks, and are either sure to shop trucks and therefore consider this make, or are "locked in" to their favorite make already. This ad is meant as a pitch to EXACTLY those it suggests.

The bigger the truck, the smaller the duck.

This spot makes me nuts too. Most folks would likely prefer being remembered for how they treated their dog than the vehicles they drove. What you hear in this is a style of ad copy writing that gained popularity in the 60s and was used a lot by a Chicago ad agency. The most Irking thing about GMC ads though is the sleazy practice of taking a product, putting lipstick on it and pretending it's Premium and superior to competitors when in fact it's just a "corporate twin" of another product. GMC trucks, folks, are, except for the grill and the name, are the same, exact product as a Chevy truck. Every single nut, bolt, screw, cotter key, steering buckle, etc. etc.on a GMC is identical to a Chevy. (There was a difference, BTW up until the late 60s when GMC trucks were actually, heavy duty versions of the Chevy. CAVEAT EMPTOR
