Holz Motors - setting white people back decades

This is a commercial for a Chevy dealer in Wisconsin. It must be all the raw footage because it's over 2 minutes long. But the fact that so many people were involved in the production of this thing makes me all giddy. It gets good at about the 1:07 mark. And by "good", I mean wickedly embarrassing (this poor girl). And by "wickedly embarrassing", I mean horribly fucking wickedly embarrassing while running out of adverbs and adjectives with a capital holy fuck retarded.

Watching this is kind of like watching a wedding reception with only white people. No, it's like a watching a wedding reception with only white people who are in their 30's and 40's and are all married and think they're still cool from back in their H.S. days but it turns out they're not anymore, if they ever were to begin with. No, it's like watching a wedding reception with only white people who are in their 30's and 40's and are all married and think they're still cool from back in their H.S. days but it turns out they're not anymore, if they ever were to begin with, but unfortunately, just days before the wedding, they all unknowingly participated in some kind of scientific experiment where they were subjected to dangerous levels of nerve gas. Yeah, it's like that.

Crazy white people and their nerve gas.

    It feels a little bit like it could be a Michael Scott Joint..... GREAT SCOTT!

    Excellent. I'm surprised I didn't think of that. It's so much like something he would put together.

  3. Jane Says:

    I've watched this three times. Unbelievable. The best moment is right at the beginning of the dance sequence.

  4. Molly Says:

    I wonder if they picked Silverstone as the color of the car because that whole part was in black and white. If they would have picked Imperial Blue Metallic, they would have had to go with color, which would have been more expensive to produce.

    And Jane...THREE times?? You are either very patient or extremely crazy! I had a hard enough time getting through it one time!!

    I'll go with crazy.

    It was like driving by a car accident, and then turning around and driving by again, and then turning around and driving by again.
