Remember the MasterCard Write Your Own Commercial Contest that I had nothin’ for?

Well, our friends at the Troubled, Embattled or just plain Failing General Motors Corporation are doing something much better. Using a semi-cool web interface, you can combine scenes of their 2007 Chevy Tahoe, music and text of your own choosing to Make an SUV Commercial, and even send links to the completed spot to your friends. What could possibly go wrong?

note: many of these feature naughty language in the text. Not Safe For Everywhere
Well, first some SUV-unfriendly folks used it to make some negative messages about Global Warmng and Peak Oil. Then the pranksters and jokers started in. You know, like me.

Beyond the SUV…

A Guy Thing…The Seats

The Samuel L. Jackson Edition…

Imagine the voice of Don LaFontaine…

Commercials… Commercials…

Law and Order?

A little more subtle Climate Change message…

Other people’s funnies (via MetaFilter, of course):
Hispanic Demographic
Bait and Switch
Viral Marketing Deconstruction
Another kind of Guy Thing
A whole different kind of Guy Thing
A Certain Shade of Green
The Best They Could Do
A Familiar Movie Moment
And another Familiar Movie Moment (or not, you know I like obscure references)

You know, I was going to do something funny for April Fools Day, but I’m not gonna beat this…

Your Turn...
