    just saw this chevrolet tv spot on tv, and was left scratching my head. How does this honor Martin Luther King Jr.s legacy?
    Its a fucking ad for chevy, that seems like a parody of something, fake and careless.

    I mean I thought it was a parody on peoples irrational faith!! the first 18 seconds was bizarre to say the least!

    The TV spot



    oh and my favorite line at 0:06

    "I step to the canvas sometimes and I don't know what's going to happen...and then there's MAGIC
    "

    please post your opinions about it below

    Seems to me like more of a shameless plug to get the Chevrolet name out rather than honoring MLK.

    That's what I think too, but I just thought it too be a joke at first, that line at 6 seconds makes me laugh, the he smiles a the end, and the lady at the beginning, you have to be shittin' me you build all that on faith??? Are you blind?! that's besides the point, it does not honor MLK at all!!

    It had a quote and a few pictures. Other than that it was "Chevrolet = Faith... you DO want faith, right?".
