Chevrolet Truck Commercial Aims to Rival Ram
By Amanda Brodhagen, Farms.com
Chevrolet Silverado launched a major advertising campaign this week for its 2014 Silverado pickup truck.
The commercial pays tribute to the American man and includes number images of farmers and ranchers. The ad features Silverado’s new anthem, a song called “Strong” by Grammy award-nominated artist Will Hoge. The American campaign will be aired nationwide during Major League Baseball’s Chevrolet Home Run Derby and All-Star Game on July 15 and 16.
The truck commercial comes several months after Ram Truck’s popular ‘So God Made a Farmer’ ad that went viral following an airing during the Super Bowl. The commercial paid tribute to America’s farmers and ranchers using stilled images accompanied by the voice of the late Paul Harvey. The impactful ad garnered unprecedented praise from the agriculture community and the general public.
Chevy has created memorable truck commercials in the past, including Bob Seger’s “Like a Rock” song featuring Chevy pickups driving across rocky terrain. The song and slogan like a rock was used in Chevy’s truck commercials for more than ten years, making it one of the longest-running commercials in history.
