How are you going to survive the end of the world on December 21? According to Chevrolet‘s new Super Bowl ad, the only way to make it is by driving a Chevy Silverado.

The 30-second Super Bowl commercial takes a look into the very near future to give us a glimpse of what’s going to happen once the Mayan apocalypse comes to pass. One lucky survivor emerges from the rubble in his Chevy Silverado to survey the damage (and it looks like we met our end at the hands of aliens and giant robots). He meets with his friends at a specified meeting point… well, except for Dave. He was driving a Ford and didn’t make it.

And it looks like the rumors are true – Twinkies can survive anything, as our fortunate heroes find out. However, it doesn’t look like any women survived the apocalypse. You can discuss amongst yourselves if this is a positive or negative consequence.

It’s a pretty funny ad, so watch it after the jump. Our only critique is that the ad could have used a few zombies to make it even more realistic. Yep, you can never have enough zombies in a car commercial.

    I speak not only for myself but for all New Yorkers and all Americans in saying that I am apalled at this obvious play on the 9/11 tragedy. For the countless families I hope that Chevrolet especially being mostly owned by the US Government would have the common sense to pull this ad before they open the wounds of the thousands of families still fractured by this senseless attack. Maybe GM should put its energy into building better vehicles instead of wasting our tax dollar bailout money of these offensive commercials

    Great commercial. Hope it’s played during the Superbowl. We can all laugh at the ridiculousness of the fear mongers together.

    I agree with Mike Duff. All I could think of was 9/11.
    The commercial was in bad taste, especially in light of the fact that one of the teams is from New York.

    Dude, I so want a twinkie now…
