Super Bowl Commercials 2012: Chevy's 'Mayan Apocalypse' Ad

I suppose Chevy's going to have to be the one to come out and say it: in accordance with Mayan prophecy, this will be the last Super Bowl ever held. Drag. I was sort of hoping for a Chiefs-Falcons Super Bowl in my lifetime. Oh well. In this commercial, Chevy convincingly demonstrates that if you do not own a Chevy Silverado, you will die.

Well, actually, another condition: it looks like you will probably also need to wear a jean jacket. There will also be frogs, because no truck commercial is complete without a misinterpretation of the Bible. Anyway, this stands out to me as one of the better Super Bowl ads of the year, because it works with a proven formula: a simple gag and top-notch production value.

These guys are going to be fine because Chevy trucks do not need gas to operate.
