Those GMC suvs are pretty nice looking design wise.

They have a new version of this commercial out that is even worse, they stripped out all of the unessential elements and left the pure assholish parts. It even more directly resembles glengarry glen ross now. It annoyed me so much I searched the web for anyone else mentioning it and it brought me to this thread, the only place on the internet anyone has seemed to make this connection to Alec Baldwin's 'coffee is for closers' speech. Thankfully I play guitar and own amps so I am able to in good faith post a response. Good day.


YES! Welcome!!

The casting was pretty good. Those two actresses took a turd of a script and made it a little funny. I would watch them again.

GMC seems to be borrowing a page from Lincoln in the brazenly stupid marketing category. Their product is ok but but the ads seem really gimmicky.

Like what's this "well put together man" nonsense? As someone who always looks disheveled, I take offense.


I just couldn't get over how much the beginning sounded like the Mitch & Murray sales conference on Glengarry Glenross.

Nice guy? Good Husband? It sounded like Alex Baldwin. "I don't give a shit. Put that coffee DOWN." Etc.


:lol: It' been a while since I saw that.

You mean this one? yes the attitude is kind of laughable. "The whole thing smacks of effort." :cup:

The text sounds like it was generated entirely by computer algorithm.

It always amazes me when these guys want to tell "their side of the story"

News flash: your product IS your side of the story. It tells everything we need to know.
