it's not award material, but this works well as a marketing direction. (rebuilding GM)

Well, the intentions are good and good luck to GM, but... doesn't the CEO's way of walking eerily remind that of Frankenstein's? I almost thought I saw the bolt in the neck. Well, it must be that low angle shot.

The tvc matches the company values perfectly. No idea, no creativity, nothing fresh. Just like GM.

GM doesn´t have credibility. And to put a country guy to talk about their cars, even if he is the CEO, doesn´t help at all. And the ad is not only serious, but boring serious, like every GM car.

This isn't your Father's Oldsmobile. It's your Grandfather's.

Whoever thinks this is an effective ad has no business being in this business.

everything in this commercial is either old and stale or young and fake. or can you see anything real? anything that doesn't smell like bullshit? oh yeah, those are the designers and they all stand around each other next to the current models. it's a crap commercial.

"car for car when compared to the competition we win" what kind of statistic is that?? In one minute he actually said nothing.
AHH G.E.C quick panic.

Personally, I wouldn't buy GM stock. You've got a 1950's culture company being run by a 1950's culture manager. RUN!!

We are in 2009 where car brands like Audi or even Mini are creating very strong identities just as it should be. This ad is as lame as America was in 60's 70's. No style, just hard sale. I'd feel sorry for myself owning a GM car after this ad even if i was happy with it. Bad move.
