Chevy Olympics ad that shows same-sex marriage in the spotlight [w/videos]
As Chevy explains it, the campaign aims to show "that even though the world is constantly changing, the things that matter most remain the same." The placement of the spot is telling, considering Russia's anti-gay laws that have left it making headlines over the past several months. A second spot for the Traverse crossover features gay and lesbian families even more heavily. Two other, shorter spots feature gay characters, as well. The four spots highlight Chevy's position alongside other organizations that have spoken out against Russia's laws in the run up to the Olympics.
There's no denying it's a bold move on the part of Chief Marketing Officer Tim Mahoney, who said in a statement that Chevrolet is helping "break new ground." We've included all 14 spots below (the Cruze ad is an early favorite around the Autoblog office), so have a look and let us know what you think. And just a friendly reminder, we all have different opinions and beliefs, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't be civil when discussing these spots. So, let's all play nice.
