Questions for Chevy's "Real People, Not Actors"
1. What incentive to these loathsome, camera-sucking little tools have to obey the bidding of the Chevy spokeschoad? Were they promised a good truck if they won the "contest" by reading off the awards, or just a Chevy?
2. "That's a lot of pressure...." um, why? Is this like the Hunger Games of commercials, where the person least proficient in reading off awards quickly is "eliminated?" It sure sounds like there's an award being offered to the best reader. Is there a reason we, the audience, have not been clued in?
3. Can we all agree that these "Real People, Not Actors" Chevy commercials went to seed quite some time ago, and if we aren't making snarky comments on blogs we are creating parody videos for YouTube making fun of them? Can they just go the hell away now, because all of these disgusting knobs pretending to be super-excited over Chevy trucks aren't the least bit convincing. They aren't even attractive or compelling in the slightest way. They are just camera whores, and we know it- so why can't these ads just go away already?
