I legitimately cannot believe that Chevy spent three million dollars to pitch this to us.
Hey! We're Chevy. We have a new car called the Cruze. Here's what you need to know about it.
1. Inexplicably, you can have your Facebook updates read to you while you drive.
2. It is a car.
3. Hmm? Sorry, I dozed off for a second there.
4. You know, I think I'm going to head out early today.
5. *tires squealing*
I mean, is this an ad for a car, or for Facebook? Have we really reached a point in society where people cannot wait more than 30 seconds to check their Facebook feeds? And do I really want people doing that while driving? I guess I'm glad he can do it (mostly) hands-free rather than fumbling with a smart phone, but that's small consolation. It's only a matter of time before your feed starts to look like this:
John Smith is driving to the mall. And updating Facebook from the car, using just my voice! Is this cool or what?
John Smith kind of wants an Orange Julius when I get there.
John Smith Whoa! Almost rear-ended this guy who decided he just HAD to turn right. Learn to drive, asshole!
John Smith Holy fuck I can't BRRRRRGGG
Also, I know this is a commercial, but there's no way the voice would manage to correctly read the woman's update with what I'm assuming is dramatic punctuation.
