I have just learned that the voice-over, read by former cocaine dealer and c-list actor Timothy Allen Dick (stage name “Tim Allen”) on Chevrolet’s television ad for its vaporware/haloware/gas-electric hybrid model, the Chevy Volt, goes as follows:
“This is America, man. Home of the highway, last-minute detours and spontaneous acts of freedom.”
“Spontaneous,” as if anything about either the Chevy Volt or the General Motors corporation resides within a light year of easy, natural outcomes!
“Freedom,” as if ordinary Americans have (or have ever had, since the consolidation of corporate capitalism) serious transportation choices!
Only in America, man. Only in America.
