DIY Chevy Volt Commercial Kind Of Sucks Too

[youtube width=”425″ height=”239″]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LD648-4ImmA[/youtube]The plugging in part was good but this pro-electric vehicle commercial by Chevy Volt owner Jeff U’Ren could probably do without the guys in the Arab headdress. Mr. U’Ren was motivated to make the video after purchasing the Volt and realizing how fun it was to drive; a message that he felt wasn’t conveyed in the GM/Chevy commercial. The fun sort of comes through in his version but so does the unnecessary xenophobic message that buying gasoline benefits Middle Easterners. It’s a little softer but reminiscent of the video from the EthicalOil.org wingnuts. [GreentechMedia]
