LOL! I missed the twinkie irony. I did find the commercial a hoot. The great Chevy truck that survived the apocalypse, but it couldn’t make it past the UAW, their inferior products, or mediocre management without a government handout.

It is ironic that GM exhibits a Hostess product in its ad
Well I read somewhere that as prepackaged snacks go Twinkies are the longest lasting as far as shelf life goes.

Yep, the twinkie thing is a hoot. :)

The disingenuousness of Government Motors had better come to a halt, they’ve been fast and loose with the truth since the bailout.

Everything about the superbowl was political. All designed to help NBC’s beloved obama.

GM is still the best reason to buy a FORD.

Well, GM assuming a 2012 Romney-Obama match-up will result in the Apocalypse seems about right.

I own seven fords, 1953 - 71, and no GM vehicles (OK, one left over 327 on a shelf).

I thought the GM truck apocalypse ad was the hands-down, absolute, winner of the game. (I also have a cat and Doritos came in second).

PS: I took the Twinkies more in keeping with their reputation of being no less edible after the fall as on the day they were sold.

For those afraid to ask, that comes to $5804 per vehicle.

Perhaps Ford should put the “No Bailout” ad back in the rotation.

GM continues to freely spend its stockpile of taxpayer supplied cash...................

We paid for that crappy ad.

Am I the only one pissed off about that?

The commercial told me that GM trucks will survive the end of civilization... just like the other cockroaches and rats.

I sure hope not. This is yet more fuel added to the fire of Government Motors ripping off taxpayers, in the original bailout, ongoing subsidies, tax credits and advertising.

"There's a box of Twinkies in that grocery store. Not just any box of Twinkies, the last box of Twinkies that anyone will enjoy in the whole universe. Believe it or not, Twinkies have an expiration date. Some day very soon, Life's little Twinkie gauge is gonna go... empty."

I saw the ad. I thought they made a bid mistake at the end by saying, “he had a Ford.”

It would have been far more effective and less offensive if they had just said, “He didn’t have a Chevy.”

This is the Obama's wannabe auto equivalent to the monopoly government school system.

Notice the Chevy commercial which touts the idea that it is the "car that America had to build"?

Believe Henry Ford's idea was that his auto was one citizens would want to own. Therein lies the difference.

Exactly, and Henry Ford’s idea was a product most could afford whereas the Volt is not.
