The Chevy Ad Campaign Parodies We All Wish We Could Make: ‘Oh, I hate you.’

Eric Rood March 2, 2017 All Things Hoon 25 Comments

Chevy’s ad campaigns of late—plastered all over television and streaming services—feature focus groups of “not actors” being frightened by an aluminum bear cage, trying to identify a Chevy Malibu, and/or describing a Chevy Cruze. They’re all painfully stupid if you’re a car person—Yes, Chevy will build aluminum trucks before too long and no, a debadged Malibu doesn’t look like a Tesla unless your have double corneal damage—and so we’re glad to see this trio of parodies from the Zebra Corner YouTube channel of a wise-cracking man named “Mahk” with a thick Boston accent green-screened into the video, telling the group everything we wish we could.

    Every one of these commercials needs a realist standing around. Now we need to put into one of the ones where they drop rocks into the bed without a bed liner.

    “I got ‘Chevy’, ‘Silverado’, and ‘midnight’ that time. I think I’m really picking up this Spanish here.”

  • The only way this could be better would be to have Denis Leary do it.

      oh, denis leary slays me!! x^D

  • Really? “Classic German design”??? If I’d seen that full commercial on my tv, I may have thrown the whole thing out the damn window.

      When my son and I see those commercials, we can’t believe those “customers”.
      Like they’ve never seen a car before. Just guaranteed I’m not buying a cheby.

      Maybe this is the classic German design they’re thinking of?

      I like that the basis for the “classic German design” line is that there’s no seam between one plastic bumper part and another plastic bumper part.

        “The panel gaps aren’t completely shit, so this can’t be a GM product.”

    ….While Mary Barra and the rest of the bright lights in the Silver Silos think everything is hunky-dory without a Chief Marketing Officer……

    In my part of the Boston area the proper response to “It has keyless entry” would be “So’s ya mutha!”, and I think my retort to “classic German styling would have been, “W’you dropped on ya head?”. Otherwise a good effort, reminds me of the Southie and Dorchester accents I used to hear when I dated a girl that lived in both those towns. Much harsher than the North Shore and South Shore accents.

    Well, of course those are real people commercials. You didn’t see any Celebrities, did you?


    • The Rusty Hub

      I want that. I wonder if those things even exist anymore.

  • The Ratkiller

    God, this is brilliant. That guy’s Boston accent just puts the icing on the f*cking cake, too.

  • Harry Callahan

    The good belly laughs produced by these three clips almost make up for all the high blood pressure created by fake news and political snobbery found online today.

    i’m waiting for these dudes to skewer that b.p.-raising KEYTRUDA ad. it’s a 1-min [or longer] black&white drug ad with an ACTOR PORTRAYAL of ‘sharon’, whose actor-portrayal family enters the studio to support the perfectly healthy fake sad sack. sharon’s life was supposedly saved by a drug with many possible side effects. when i cannot locate the remote, i scream @ ‘sharon’.
