Chevy Ad Campaign Blows Up In Their Face

Thanks to Jennifer Lesher for forwarding this along. Chevy, maker of the gi-normous Tahoe cruiseliner, er, I mean passenger vehicle has created an ad campaign where visitors to their website can create their own Tahoe commercials. Chevy provides various images, music, effects, and you supply the text overlays.

How long do you think it would take in this day of global warming before people started attacking their vehicles 12 mpg rating? Not long.

Autoblog has picked out a half-dozen or so of the better anti-SUV ads that visitors had made. You can view them through this site (they're the numbered links near the bottom). And they're pretty good.

And just so there's no confusion here, I'm not attacking all SUV's here or saying that everyone should be driving a hybrid. For those who watch South Park, I'll put it in terms you can understand. Yes we do own a hybrid, but we don't bend over to savor our own farts. If you didn't see last week's South Park episode, then just ignore those last comments. Anyway, we also have a small SUV and always have and probably always will. But it gets twice the mileage of that Tahoe and gets used infrequently.

But that's beside the point. The point is that Chevy is actually allowing anti-Chevy ads on their own website. Check them out before they disappear forever.
