Did Chevrolet Have to Make America Cry
With Its New Christmas Ad

Original Article

Posted By: ladydawgfan, 12/17/2021 4:06:37 AM

I am not sure who told Chevrolet that what we really needed this Christmas was to ugly cry over an ad they produced for the holidays, but whoever it was needs to go sit in the corner and think about what they’ve done. You may have seen the shortened version of this ad, titled “Holiday Ride,” on TV. But you don’t get the full emotional impact without seeing the extended four-minute version, which is a tear-jerker and hit me harder than listening to my child ask me why Mufasa wasn’t waking up. [Video] All the jokes aside, this ad is possibly one of the most needed


My mom passed away in March of this year and my sister, former poster vttwinmom, just passed on Black Friday from cancer. My dad is clearly struggling this Christmas. My mom's crèche, which has been set out for decades, sits in its box on the top shelf of my dad's closet. He could not bring himself to set it up. Perhaps next year . . . As for me, I keep catching myself wanting to call my sister up for this or that, or send her photos of our Christmas tree as we have done each year since smart phones came out for sale. Most difficult of all was realizing that my Christmas list was missing three beloved names this year. Ads like this ought to remind all of us to call our family members, heal that rift, forgive and forget, tell them that you love them. Tomorrow is not guaranteed and you might not get another chance.

Thanks so much for posting this. Still ugly crying as I type. My mom passed away two years ago this week, my dad 17 years ago this week. Sitting in their garage for years was their beloved 1955 Chevy BelAir hardtop, the only brand new car either of them had ever owned. My brother restored it some time ago, and my mom would drive it in local parades into her 70s until she became too frail to drive anything. She was always glowing with pride when she drove that car. I don’t know if there was anything that made her happier. After she passed, we had it put on a flatbed and shipped halfway across the country where my brother lives now. Seeing that car come out of the garage to be hauled away was more emotional for me than selling their house or, I’m embarrassed to say, even her funeral in some ways (probably too numb for that). But there was a finality I couldn’t ignore. I visited my brother a couple of months ago, first time since the car was now in his garage. Made me cry to see it there, but happy tears, knowing he still takes it out sometimes. If our loved ones can look down from heaven, I’m sure it makes my mom and dad so happy. Sorry for the long ramble, but it feels good to share a happy memory. Chevy was once synonymous to me with everything that was great about our country. This ad was a beautiful reminder. Kudos. And Merry Christmas to my friends at Lucianne.

Most offensive ad I have ever seen. Implies there is one religion and excludes Judaism, Islam, Kawanza, Maoism Taoism, Hindu and others for starters. No people of color, trans, bi, lesbian, homosexuals or other non binary genders. Alternative lifestyles are not included. And worst, it makes a white male seem like a human instead of an evil hate monger monster we all know white males to be. And maybe the worse is it glorified a non electric climate change accelerator car!

To OP & #1 - Thank you both for sharing. In my lifetime, I've said too-early goodbyes to my father, my child, and my sister - and each loss created a void that only Christ could fill. OP - I, too, have that sinking feeling when I reach for the phone to make calls...and have to remind myself that they won't answer. Sage advice to live for today, forgive often, and choose to love always. God bless.

Thanks for posting OP! It's beautiful. I'm very sorry for your losses this year. Rest comfortably knowing that they are together in God's Glory watching over you and your Dad. May God comfort you through the holiday and into the future. #1, For me, it was a set of silly deer antlers my Dad found in the woods and had hanging in the garage with his hats all over them. As I was clearing out their house, my husband kept trying to take it down and I wouldn't let him. It was the finality of it all. On our last day there, he took them down, raced home and hung them in our laundry room (which was the door we always came through to get into our house) before I got home to surprise me. We still have them in our new home. It brings a sense of peace. Sorry for your loss as well.

I've not seen this Chevy ad. I've also not seen the Mercedes Benz ad too many times this year. Perhaps it's because car dealerships are missing the cars. I have seen the Lincoln ad with Beverly Jenney singing about fifty times. I'll keep my eyes out for the chevy ad.

I agree- very nice ad. Something similar happened back around 1970, where Kodak ran a commecial, using Green Green Grass of Home, no narratioon, no sales pitch. It deleted the final verse of the song (about the man facing the executioner) and showed a young man, low ranking Army, in uniform, getting off a Greyhound bus in a rural area. It was at the peak of the Viet Nam war protests, by the way. He joins up with his family, and in the final scene, he is pushing his really cute girlfriend as she sat on a swing. I called my best friend, an anti-viet nam war protester, to see what he thought of the ad. He grunted and said, 'Kodak is honoring killing.' I hung up the phone.

Oops! I forget to say the Kodak commercial played during the Academy Awards of that year. And it ran about 3 or 4 minutes long. And there was no sales pitch from Kodak, just their name at the end of the commercial.

"How DARE you!" That car is toooo old to be allowed on the streets, it doesn't have ANY pollution controls, consumes three times the carbon inducing fuels per mile as "Modern" cars, has none of the airbags, rollover protection, abs, skid control, automatic collision avoidance technology everyone NEEDS to be safe...and safe to be around on the roads. Fer Cripes doesn't even have 5mph bumpers. If it was a Semi Truck, it would already be outlawed in Calif.

Thank you, OP, and to everyone who shared their own stories of loss. Until now, I had not seen the four minute version of this beautiful message. Watching the whole story unfold, celebrating love, commitment and sensitivity toward one another touched my heart, as did the comments that followed. At a time when major corporations have taken it upon themselves to instruct Americans on their many flaws, I appreciated the refreshing re-interpretation of middle Americans as the kind, grateful, and generous folks most of us were raised to be.

Cried buckets (and still crying). Like previous posters, it made me think of lost loved ones and how their cherished possessions still have meaning for those of us left behind. My mom and loved MIL died around the holiday season (near Thanksgiving and Christmas), so the holidays have an element of melancholy for me. This ad brought it out. Kudos to Chevrolet.

And....future cars, we are told by our iron fisted diktator WILL have electric motors and batteries and electronic nannies in the dash to decide if we are fit, sober and attentive enough to drive. Can a political test in that electro-nanny be far behind? In a number of TV reality shows, the point is to restore an old family heirloom car as tribute to the memory of the original owners, and it is often a very emotional time. In some cases the owner is alive, more often the owner is gone and the family is doing the restoration in honor of their memory. Powerful stuff. Cars have been 'totems' for several generations. And electric nanny cars just won't cut it. And sadly, huge swaths of younger folks care just as much about their car as they do for their washing machine or refrigerator, which is to say they care nothing about it. So many young people (not all of them!) are just entirely uninterested in automobiles and the great freedom that they give us that ten thousand generations before us did not have, and which is being removed from our future by our overlords. Hunger Games is taken as a blueprint by the chattering classes.

Did 'Trumpism' Originate with a Democrat? 0 replies
Posted by ladydawgfan 12/20/2021 8:28:48 PM Post Reply
Since the 45th president first leapt from the world of business and media into politics, pundits have speculated endlessly about the origin of his populism. To the 21st century reporter and even casual observer, Trump’s aggressive and bombastic tribunesque populism appeared to come out of nowhere. Critics looked quickly at foreign political examples, such as Mussolini or Hitler, conflating the use of personal political charisma with the worst who ever employed it. But perhaps the real role model came from closer to home. About the same time that Donald Trump emerged to impose his will on the real estate market in New York City,

Five heartless thieves were busted for looting the ravaged homes of tornado victims in Kentucky, officials said. The group of looters allegedly went to an area “particularly hit hard by the tornado” on Friday and ransacked the destroyed homes, according to Graves County Sheriff Jon Hayden. Law enforcement officers from several agencies quickly converged on the group who were stopped while trying to flee the area with several damaged vehicles in tow. The vehicles “were owned by tornado victims that have been displaced by the tornado, in the hospital, and/or deceased,” Hayden said. When confronted by officers, group members gave contradicting stories with some claiming they had received permission to be there,

It’s the great Candy Cane Crisis of 2021. Weakness in peppermint crops and COVID-caused logistical issues have created a problem for Big Candy. “We only received half of our candy cane order for the holiday season and sold out almost immediately. We currently have zero in stock,” Mitchell Cohen, the owner of Economy Candy on the Lower East Side, told The Post. “Raw material and ingredient shortages globally have had quite an impact.” It was a first for the store, which has been in business since 1937. Cohen said they sold more than 12,000 candy canes before running dry. “Since candy canes were invented, we’ve had candy canes,” he said.

Well, isn’t this interesting. Pfizer on Friday said the Covid pandemic will continue through the 2022 midterms and could extend to 2024. Just in time for the general election. Is this also an admission the Covid vaccines don’t work? Reuters reported: Pfizer Inc (PFE.N) on Friday forecast that the COVID-19 pandemic would not be behind us until 2024 and said a lower-dose version of its vaccine for 2- to 4-year-olds generated a weaker immune response than expected, potentially delaying authorization. Pfizer Chief Scientific Officer Mikael Dolsten said in a presentation to investors that the company expects some regions to continue to see pandemic levels of COVID-19 cases over the next year or two.

Frequently, the week’s top knucklehead earns this dreaded honor for a singular, overwhelmingly idiotic action or statement which is supported by other, underlying knuckleheadedness. Occasionally, however, we come across a candidate who inexplicably decides to engage in rapid fire ridiculousness by repeatedly saying or doing one stupid thing after another. Such was the case this week with the incomparable Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA). There are undoubtedly some smug, leftist elites who will dismiss the idea that Pocahontas can be a knucklehead. They’ll lecture, “She’s an academic, she’s intelligent,” and then they’ll point to her Ivy League “background.” For starters, Liz Warren never graduated from an Ivy League school.

If you aren’t white, you may not be able to go way outside. At least, that appears to be the belief of a North Carolina State University professor. KangJae “Jerry” Lee — of the school’s College of Natural Resources — recognizes the racism keeping you from enjoying the great outdoors. Cultural differences, he asserts, can’t explain why there aren’t more black people fishing, hunting, and hiking. Also an insufficient excuse: income disparity. The instructor laments America’s adventure/nature gap, but he’s bulls-eyed the culprit: systemic racism. Wichita’s KAKE recently jawed it up with Jerry on the lack of outdoor equity.
