    Can't wait to see the Tesla Trio do a song and dance about our car. Just can't wait.... not.

    When processing how horrifying that video is, consider these behind-the-scenes facts:

    1) Some marketing or PR person hired and paid someone to write that ear-bleeding song.
    2) That same marketing or PR person also hired and paid someone to perform said ear-bleeding song.
    3) Our intrepid Chevy marketing/PR rep paid someone to choreograph a dance to the aforementioned song.
    4) Once again from the mind of head-scratching marketing/PR, they actually hired professional dancers to perform the Volt dance.

    Wow...:confused: I'm not sure whether to laugh at the stunt or feel sorry for the performers. :eek:

    And no doubt some management signed it off...

    You wonder why they went bankrupt. I'm sure they are sitting there thinking that in this new touchy-feely eco world, that is the kind of thing we like :rolleyes:

    Soon this thread will need to be retitled "Chevy Volt song and dance"

    That or "Chevy Volt foot in mouth"

    Might have improved the routine.
