General Motors commercial shoot turns extraterrestrial – Click above to watch video after the jump

What goes on behind the scenes at a commercial video shoot is usually relatively boring stuff. Lighting is rigged up, shots are established and footage is captured. Unless you're a stunt driver required to to spend all day pushing the laws of physics to the limit, hanging out at a commercial shoot can be a numb-numbing affair. Autoblog reader Alexander Van Walsum was on hand to capture some behind-the-scenes footage of a recent General Motors commercial, and rather than string it together in a standard way he decided to have a bit more fun with it.

Proving that the magic happens in editing, Alexander pieced together his footage and turned a commercial shoot into a mashup about an Area 51-esque event. You can catch a glimpse of a Chevrolet Volt, and a wider shot showing off even more of the Bowtie-wearing family. Click past the jump to watch Incident at Inyokern.

      Forget the Porsche, forget the Volt. Even if there was some super-uber-top-secrete mid-engined quad-turbo C7, I want to see more about the camera car that looks like a Baja 1000 buggy.

          GM has nothing to do with it. I made it for my own reel. If anything it would have been a viral for these guys: http://www.pursuitsystems.com/

      "Have you had enough of me..." Yes. I have. What a pointless video that was.

      It takes a Porsche to film a great Chevy commercial... At least they squeezed a Suburban and an Express (van) in there.
