Chevrolet Went the Anti-Bud Light Route
for Their Holiday Commercial

Original Article

Chevrolet has done the impossible this holiday season: it produced a commercial without any woke nonsense, which was beyond refreshing. No Dylan Mulvaney shenanigans, no virtue signaling, and no liberal drivel being forced down our throats. I don’t know if America’s executives have learned that going woke is a ruinously expensive venture. The car company might release a lefty ad later. For now, let’s enjoy this tearjerker. The ad starts as a family visits their grandparents over the holidays, where the grandmother is exhibiting signs of dementia. She doesn’t even acknowledge her young granddaughters seeing her.


Thanks to Matt Vespa for widening the audience for this fabulous ad for Chevrolet. Not all ad agencies nor all corporate marketing executives are as "woke" clueless as Bud Light's. For those who have experienced a loved one's dementia, this ad hits home.

Must be the third or fourth article here about this damnably manipulative commercial advertisement for vehicles built by a company largely owned by the Communist Chinese Party and from foreign sourced parts. Do not be fooled,these people want you dead and your childrens children enslaved to them for generations...

Many of us realize what they did so the propaganda did not work. They also got the medical science backwards because dementia patients usually remember their distant past quite clearly and forget what happened in the most recent past. GM fell for the EV hype and government subsidies, which is an anti-American mistake that will put them under water. They also accepted a $5 billion loan from Obama via US taxpayers which turned into a bailout. No tears shed here.

Who cares if GM is sinless or doesn't walk on water? I refuse to act like Scrooge before he saw the light. Being manipulative is the whole point of advertising and I for one am glad to see a holiday ad as used to be the norm before everyone became so damnably 'woke'.

Beautifully crafted ad certainly accomplishes hitting all the emotional notes that so many of us have known or are living through with family. I wish it were the case that putting our loved one in a car and revisiting favorite spots could bring some happiness and connection, but, sadly, that is fantasy. Nevertheless, it's hard not to feel touched by this ad. BUT, I'll withhold judgement until we see the next ad they produce. Will they swing back to Woke? Probably. One ad I think is also well done is the group of older women who use the colorful sleds to hit the snowy slope and relive a few minutes of pure childhood freedom and joy. This is from Amazon.

That may well be the most beautiful thing I have seen in years. I am sitting here in tears. So glad Mrs C isn't up yet. If I am to be manipulated, I'd rather it be with beauty and love rather than the woke carp we are subjected to pretty much daily. I'm not in the market for a new car and may never be again. If I am though, I may well remember this.

I wouldn't mind any car company making commercials about how reliable their cars are, or how many great features they have, but I am put off by emotional manipulation type of commercials which have no bearing whatsoever on the capabilities or advantages to the product being advertised. I enjoyed the old Budweiser commercials on one level as a celebration of American values, but I was always just a touch irritated at A-B playing on patriotism to sell their beer. Not a fan of that sort of an ad. If you want to convince me to buy your product, tell me about the virtues of the product or it's low price compared to the competition.

Oh Puleeeze...I don't care if you hate GM or not, you have to admit it is a wonderful Ad. you don't have to look at it as them selling a Car, look at it as them selling what American Ads used to look like. They were full of the Wonder of Christmas instead of Woke or Two Guys Kissing or Two Mommy's taking care of their kids. Its a great AD of times gone by! It's the reason we loved the Budweiser Horses adds, it's a Happy Ad that actually applies to what a lot of folks are living with right now. I'm happy that someone finally figured out that we hated the ads of just a few years ago, and the ads they're putting on TV Now are making folks happy again!

1. Good to see Caucasians in commercials again- an advertiser who realizes it’s a good ideal to try to appeal to people who actually buy your products. 2. Made me think of Dementia Joe and how his eyes must light up again when he goes to the garage and sees that Corvette nestled among boxes of classified documents.

I will never forgive GM or Chrysler for stealing from the American taxpayers in 2008/2009. I owned 3 GM cars in the past, and shall never waste another cent on any of their products. There is only one American car company left, Ford.

Back in my day, cheerleaders were hot and gorgeous, at least at the University of Colorado/Boulder where I watched them. They were the best-looking girls on campus, and that was saying a lot at the time in Boulder. After I graduated and left Boulder, they were evidently unable to attract the same quality without me. In fact, they resorted to male cheerleaders. There were sniggers that the male cheerleaders were probably a bit light-footed, if you know what I mean. That was before light-footedness, if you know what I mean, became the Next Big Thing. But male cheerleaders mostly faded

While their people languish in poverty and are treated as human shields, the leaders of Hamas live billionaire lifestyles. The terror group’s three top leaders alone are worth a staggering $11 billion between them and enjoy a life of luxury in the sanctuary of the emirate of Qatar. The emirate has long welcomed the leaders of the terror group and installed them in its luxury hotels and villas at the same time as hosting a vast American military presence. Now Republican Tennessee Congressman Andy Ogles is co-sponsoring a bill that would strip Qatar … as a key US ally.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Tuesday that a “revitalized” Palestinian Authority should retake control of Gaza if Israel succeeds in its goal of toppling Hamas, but that regional partners and international agencies could play an interim role. The comments by Blinken during testimony before the Senate Appropriations Committee marked the first time the Biden administration has publicly declared its desire for the PA to return to the Gaza Strip, after privately raising the idea with regional partners since the outbreak of the Israel-Hamas war. “At some point, what would make the most sense would be for an

NITERÓI, Brazil. The sight of the newcomer took Gino Fonseca by surprise. As one of the city’s most prominent drag queens, Fonseca thought he knew most everyone who worked the nightclubs and LGBTQ events. But when he ascended a Pride parade float dressed in his drag persona, Katya Furacão, he saw a dazzling young drag performer he’d never before encountered. Fonseca watched Kitara Ravache, who wore a red bejeweled dress. The newcomer had appeared from nowhere but was already at the top of the local gay scene, dancing alongside the most established drag queens in this Rio de Janeiro suburb.

The race is on to prevent the sinking of a cargo ship off the Dutch coast which is carrying almost 3,000 vehicles, including 350 Mercedes-Benz, as it burns out of control with an electric car believed to be behind the deadly fire. At least one crew member died and others were injured after fire ripped through the Fremantle Highway, a 18,500-ton car-carrying vessel. Rescue helicopters and boats evacuated 23 crew members from the Panamanian-registered ship. Officials have said there are 'many' wounded. Some suffered broken bones, burns and breathing problems and were taken to hospitals in the northern Netherlands

Drones struck Moscow on Tuesday but were neutralised, Russia said, in what one politician called the worst attack on the capital since World War II, while Kyiv was also hit from the air for the third time in 24 hours. Since Russia invaded its neighbour in February last year, the war has largely been fought inside Ukraine, though Moscow has reported some attacks on its territory and blamed them on Ukraine, including an alleged assassination attempt against President Vladimir Putin. Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said two people were injured, but not seriously, while some residents in two lightly damaged apartment

Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan appeared to take umbrage at Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s majority opinion in a copyright case involving Andy Warhol and Prince, telling readers in her dissent that she would trust their “good judgment” rather than counter her colleague’s “fistfuls of comeback footnotes.” The shot at Kagan’s fellow liberal came in a lengthy second footnote of her dissent, which several Supreme Court observers found “interesting” and “noteworthy.” . . . Kagan wrote, “ . . . the majority opinion is trained on this dissent in a way majority opinions seldom are. Maybe that makes the majority opinion self-refuting?”

Former Clinton White House Communications Director George Stephanopoulos, now host of “This Week” on ABC, commented on the results of a recent ABC News/Washington Post poll Sunday. The short version: “This poll is just brutal for President Biden.” Stephanopoulos was introducing ABC News Political Director Rick Klein, who went into the specifics. “The skepticism over his leadership extends deep inside his own party,” Klein said of President Joe Biden. As evidence, Klein said that only 36 percent of the Democrats surveyed by the poll said that the incumbent should run for a second term. More than half preferred “someone else,”

Hear that flushing noise? Amid all the screeching of the anti-Semitic global elites, the haze of pro-Hamas global protests, and the Biden administration's efforts to micromanage how Israel conducts its war against avowed terrorists, Israel's Defense Forces have been quietly takin' care of business. AT's editor, Andrea Widburg has written about the mass surrenders which is happy news indeed, here. But how they did it is fascinating. They've flooded Hamas's tunnels, at least in some places, with sea water, in order to, as Israel's defense minister put it, to “wipe this thing called Hamas, ISIS-Gaza, off the face of the earth.”

Former President Donald Trump is urging supporters to “guard the vote” during next year’s election, a phrase that has set off alarm bells among pro-democracy advocates who say it signals permission to take extreme measures that could intimidate voters and threaten election workers. The phrase is a relatively novel one for Trump, though activists in the far-right movement have been setting the groundwork for it to be deployed more widely. Former national security adviser Michael Flynn has spent months repeating the phrase in posts, speeches and interviews.

Something has changed inside the Department of Justice, though it’s unclear exactly what might be going on under the covers. After years of stalling and obfuscation, doing everything possible to keep First Son Hunter Biden out of any legal trouble, the DOJ filed nine new charges against Hunter last night. None of them are trivial and three are quite serious. He was hit with three felony tax evasion charges and six related misdemeanors. The unpaid taxes add up to $1.4 million and they carry the potential of up to 17 years in prison. This is going to put Joe Biden in a very awkward position in short order and
