GM's Aveo Robot Beats Old Joke to Death


OK so BMW did the Mini robot thing. Then Citroen did it. Then it got spoofed. Then Sony spoofed it to promote a game. Then some kid spoofed the Sony Spoof. Then Citroen returned with a skating robot. Then...nothing happend for two years.

Now, moving only as quickly as GM can, Chevrolet is out with its own nod to the roof top dancing car robot thing turning the whole thing into a lame, two years too late joke. OK, so it's a little bit funny. Strawberry Frog Amsterdam created it.

This would have been a better ad if it was timely.

Huh? Timely? You mean before it was done 4 times?

Sorry guys, I like it, it's funny.
Yes, it's late, not too late though.
But who likes the Chevrolet Aveo?

Hmmm. I have to agree, I like it.
The effects are fantastic! The idea is funny. And I think that it's a parody, so I think that means it has to have been done before...or am I wrong. Old or new, anyway it's cool.

This is pretty cool. True some other ads have used the dancing robot before, but never really making in fun of it. A dancing car is a quite stupid sales point for any car... That why this is still great stuff.

Get real!
