I’m so sick of these people with their absurd “surprise your spouse with a $80,000 car for Christmas” commercials like it’s a normal thing to do. It’s a huge purchase… it’s never a surprise.
And while companies like Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and Lexus are a little more realistic, this his and hers GMC commercial (that they air fifty times a day for the past three years) is utterly fucking ridiculous.
Hey GMC, nobody is buying his and hers trucks this Christmas…. read the fucking room.
If you’ve turned on the TV in the past two weeks you’ve seen it. This woman surprises her husband new his and hers watches, but then he has a surprise as well. Two fucking GMC Denali trucks, which are revealed as they walk out of their ginormous mansion…
First of all, who the hell lives like this? What microscopic fraction of the population is this commercial really directed at? It sure as hell isn’t me and all the other guys sitting on the couch in their underwear on Sunday afternoon, nursing a hangover, and watching the Bears embarrass the living hell out of themselves every week. And second of all, if you have that kind of money, you sure as shit aren’t buying two GMCs.
If you haven’t seen it, prepare throw your device out the window.
You see, it’s offensively awful… and in 2020? How tone deaf can you be? Get rid of it you clowns.
But this past weekend, Saturday Night Live finally put them in their place. I’m not a big SNL guy, at least not since the glory days, but every once in a while, they absolutely nail it.
