My FAVORITE Corvette TV Commercial, Plus, One Right in Your Eye!
One for the heart and one with ATTITUDE!
We all have that “special Corvette moment.” You know, that moment that defined and marked our passion for Corvettes. The moment that before it happened, Corvettes were NOT a part of our awareness. And afterwards, everything was different. For me, it was tagging along with my big brother in 1966 to a local Chevy dealer where I saw a ‘66 Coupe sitting on the showroom floor and a salesman gave me a brochure. It’s different for each of us, but I’d venture to say that if you think back, there was a definite “moment.”
The “Jump’n Jack Flash” commercial for the then-new C6 Corvette does an excellent job of capturing “that moment” for a young lad. While I didn’t have such a vivid day dream and Suzy Holcomb didn’t “wink” at me in HER Corvette as we passed by one another flying through the air in our respective Vettes, the spirit of “the moment” is spot on and so is the closing line, “The all-new Corvette! The official car of your dreams!” This commercial ROCKS!
The second commercial positions the new Chevy Cobalt as the younger family sibling that doesn’t know when to leave its “older counterpart” alone. Like a big cat, the C6 Vette grumbles after a few taps then ROARS, BURNS RUBBER, DOES A 180, and gets IN THE FACE of the new cub Cobalt.
I would have liked to have seen one of two things happen at the end. After the Vette spins around and gets in the face of the punk kid, a loud, “WOOM-PAHHH!!!” would have been nice.
Or, the Vette spins about, roars, “WOOM-PAHHH!!!” And bumps the Cobalt back.
Better yet, after the Vette touches noses with the Cobalt, it burns rubber and pushes the kid all the way back to the next traffic light!
Or the BEST might have been after the Vette bumps noses with the Cobalt, it burns rubber and DRIVES OVER the Cobalt! (just having so fun here! LOL!) Enjoy! – Scott
