Kid Rock receives a Camaro for his birthday - Click above to watch video after the jump

Chevrolet and NASCAR racer Jimmie Johnson teamed up to make Kid Rock's recent birthday party one the Detroit city rocker will likely never forget. During the singer's 40th birthday celebration concert, Johnson presented Rock a brand-new Chevrolet Camaro on behalf of the Bow Tie brand. You know, because if there's anyone who can't afford to buy his own car, it's Kid Rock. Sarcasm aside, Rock seemed genuinely surprised and grateful for the gift, even going so far as to ask if he was being punked.

No, sir. That's the rest of us.

Ironically, the birthday celebration concert that Kid threw himself was being held at Ford Field. The one-off Camaro also came with special graphics slathered over the hood, doors and back glass, as well as a personalized "BADASS" license plate. We couldn't make this stuff up if we tried. You can hit the jump to see a video of the gift-giving for yourself.

      WOW such hatred, Whats wrong with people? im not the biggest kid rock fan but im not going to dismiss him or GM. GM makes GREAT cars, I LOVE my Traverse! Wouldnt trade it for anything. And kidrock is alright. As long as I dont hear any news about him being a crack head, pedophile, women beater etc.. hes fine by me. And people knock GM for giving away a Camaro.. big DEAL! These are tax write-off's people! Ford, Chrylser, Toyota all do the same! its a way of cutting cost on taxes. It is a beautiful car and I wish it were mine. but im happy hes going to be hauling around detroit in an american made vehicle. Not something from Japan. And when did any location become ford land? LOL I love all of you chevy hating ford lovers. Ford would have been better off getting gov. LOANS too. They are mortgaged up to their eye brows! Atleast GM went bankrupt for a GOOD reason. Ford was hurting because of POOR products. GM was hurting because they had TOO many retirees to pay on top of high wages. The high salaries I can agree is a little silly. But GM will always be better than ford. Ford now only has Ford and Lincoln.People brag about ford making great cars.. No.. They are just making cars that are ON PAR with most of the market. But they are still not exceeding quality. GM was smart, new products, new designs from the ground up. ground breaking technology, smarter, safer cars.

      It sickens me deeply to see a large corporation take the time and effort to provide such a thoughful and lavish gift to a piece of trash like kid rock when they could be using their resorces to, I don't know, feed the hungry or something!

        Yea, the new stuff is kinda weak. Maybe the whole "40" thing has him in a midlife crisis.

      At least Chevy gets some free publicity out of this (which is why they give guys like Kid Rock and Armando Gallaraga free cars). What bothers me are the scores of B-list celebrities like Wolfgang Puck who get comped cars with no publicity value while I have to jump through hoops to get a car for a week to write a review.

      Next time GM needs a money bail out, they should call Kid Rock himself instead of the government which indirectly comes out of our pockets. Damn I look in my driveway and all I see is a used 1990 Lexus

      GM didn't give him that car,we did because the taxpayers own the company!! I want to know why we let GM build the new plant down in Mexico to employ 1200 !!!

      Nice, tons of contract employees who work for GM (Ford and Chrysler as well) cant get a raise from their contract house because GM (i'm told) is stopping all raise requests at the door most of these employees going years with no compensation but they can give a vehicle to someone who can easily afford it. I'm disappointed to say the least, hey Kid can you help me out im trying to keep food on the table and a roof over my head and my paycheck just can't cut it...
