2012 Chevy Super Bowl Commercials: From the coolest car on the block to the smartest technology in the galaxy. A man walks in on a curious group of intergalactic creatures checking out the advanced technology of his Chevrolet Volt. Learn more about what they're exploring at: www.chevrolet.com/volt

TOPICS: Culture/Society
KEYWORDS: chevyvolt; superbowl
Yeah, Chevy Volt sold a whopping total of 603 cars last month. This commercial is ripe for parody. Post your Chevy Volt commercial parody ideas.

My own submission is that the aliens are so unimpressed with the Chevy Volt that they take a Yugo into their Mother Ship instead.

Notice that the aliens were way more interested in the guy’s wife than they were in the Chevy Volt?

A guy was on Fox news yesterday morning, I forget his name, but he said they gave him a Volt to try out.

He said he only went 18 miles before the gas kicked in and when it kicked in he got 30 MPG with the thing.

I guess that would get me to the closest grocery store to me, but I would have to gas it back.

My commercial would show a Volt sitting at a stop sign with two Gaia worshipers in it. A little girl rides through the crosswalk and one of her tires accidentally brushes the front bumper, and then the Volt busts into flames and incinerates the two greenies that are now screaming in agony.

Then an announcer says: Chevy Volt, reducing carbon emmissions, two greenies at a time.

LOL! There are some really FUnnie comments posted to this YouTube video. Here are some of them:

The electric Edsel.

Most electrical power in the United States is generated using coal. This is a coal powered car.

Yeah. A species which has mastered interstellar space travel - is amazed by a partially electric car.

They sell 600-800 Volts a month, mostly to fleets. In the very unlikely event that this one commercial could double their sales for the month, that would be an extra $5,000 in advertising costs per additional car sold. This is what happens when the criminal class takes over a business under crony capitalism - they have no business sense at all. I hope and pray that GM will die soon. Whether it is soon or not though, I am boycotting that corrupt company forever.

At a starting price of $32,000.000 - seems to me that Governmint Motors is making coal powered cars for the 1%, and giving them rebates paid for by the hard working the middle class!

Sounds like Tim Allen did the voiceover.  :-(

Eric Bolling test drove one last week, and reported on it on “The Five.”

It wasn’t exactly positive.

Looks like the distance on battery keeps going down. My Camry with a pretty potent V-6 gets 23-25 locally and 30 on the highway (at 72 mph - up to 33 at 60 mph and as little as 26 if I keep it a tad above 80 on those long dark Alabama stretches between population centers). I only have to "plug it in" to a gas pump for 6 minutes a week (350-450 miles depending on type of driving) and it cost under $29K without a government subsidy.

I have a small Toyota Camry I bought for $1,500 3 years ago

Runs great, gets about 40 MPG on the Thruway.

I will drive it until it melts into a pile of rust, which will NOT be anytime soon, as far as I can tell.

My own submission is that the aliens are so unimpressed with the Chevy Volt that they take a Yugo into their Mother Ship instead.

I would have the Aliens inspecting the Chevy Volt, then switch to their commander on the mother-ship and have him state "There is obviously no intelligent life on this planet. Blow it up.......

I noticed that they really liked his wife, what a strange thing to put in a car commercial. They liked something better than the car, why would the ad people do that?

Especially if they're going to run this alongside the other Super Bowl ads, like the Acura NSX ad with Jerry Seinfeld (and Jay Leno).

Thanks for the ping.

I like your idea: “My own submission is that the aliens are so unimpressed with the Chevy Volt that they take a Yugo into their Mother Ship instead.”

But does that mean that the aliens are liberal greenies? Then this should be their commercial:

In A Yugo - Paul Shanklin
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MqTKZgEW8pM

Now as far as the Chevy Volt goes (not very, heheh), maybe we could ask Paul Shanklin to put together some lyrics and video for this tune:

Johnny Cash-Ring of Fire 1963
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gRlj5vjp3Ko
