Turns out the trick-looking Cobalt we showed you earlier is actually an extra General Motors used in one of its Super Bowl commercials that will debut this Sunday. The car originally debuted as a 2005 SEMA vehicle (thanks, Nick!). The distinguished Ray Wert III from Jalopnik saw our post with the picture of a Cobalt wearing a very Malibu-esque face, and immediately noticed it in this commercial. Despite the fact it's apparent the car is just a prop, it doesn't change the fact that the Cobalt would look a lot better with a front end more like the Malibu's. Mystery solved.
Check out the commercial in full after the jump, the Cobalt appears with about 13 seconds left.
