Yeah, that was no where near the Route 66 commercial (and actually, the Route 66 commercial was probably the only AFN commerical I liked).

Bummer for Chevy.

Didn't the Democrats complain about Bush using 9/11 in is political ads? Bush had relevance since he was directly responsible for how 9/11 was handled. How do the tragedies in the Chevy commercial have relevance to their trucks?

Check out
I can't remember the commercial you are looking for, but when I did a search for AFN and it brought back quite a few options.

Thank you. You are the first person to mention how just wrong this commercial is. It really rubs me the wrong way. Right at the outset, the first time I saw it, I questioned using Mellencamp (not sure what name variation he goes by these days), but thought I'd give it a shot. It is awful. It is so far off the mark of what I thought Chevy stood for, or should stand for.

I bitched about this commercial to my girlfriend, she just took it in stride.

Glad I'm not the only one who wondered what happened between 1969 and 2006.
