MOTOR CITY

PHOTO: Chevrolet “Electrifies” With New Gay-Friendly Car Ad

In a subtle nod to Detroit Pride, GM commissioned this ad for its hybrid Volt, which revisits the coming-out process through the eyes of a young automobile. Could this be the plot of Cars 3? Pixar, are you listening?

    Hah, I kind of like that. It’s a nice, simple, clean fun advert. Watch One Million Morons go batshit about it in 3… 2… 1…

    It’s Electric! (Boogie oogie Ooogie ooogie)

  • christopher di crapito

    Cute ad. But pretending the be gay-friendly just to sell more cars?

  • the other Greg

    So was Vince Vaughan right after all – electric cars really ARE gay?

  • Adam

    @christopher di crapito: Pretending? GM offers full domestic partner benefits, and full protection for employees based on sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. Hyundai, for one, isn’t so “friendly”, and neither is Porsche, according to gaywheels.com. And yes, I work for GM–just offering some facts to counter misperceptions.

    I like it, simple and cute

    let us not forget what this company is doing to the environment around the world. let us not be gay washed by all these big corporations.

    @Carl: Carl, One million morons or one million mormons?

  • William

    Adorable ad.

    @Adam: Well of course you’ll speak in their favor–you work for them! So that pretty much makes your opinion biased and worthless. You wouldn’t by any chance be working for their PR team, would you? Nah ;)

  • Mark

    @christopher di crapito: What is biased about telling the truth about their treatment of gay staff? Get over yourself Christopher!

  • Cam

    @christopher di crapito:

    Facts aren’t biased in either direction. He stated clearly what GM offers. Just because you seem to want to say that they are anti gay doesn’t change the fact of what he said.

    If you think they are anti-gay fine. Then list your reasons.

    @Cam: I don’t think that at all, you idiot! You do like to put your own spin on other people’s word, eh? Ok, let me re-word this so your limited intellect will understand : It’s all about money! Clear enough?

  • Olive Austin

    @13 — Right, because all other cars are free.

  • Dan Watson

    It was nice seeing the GM Renaissance center lit up with pride during motor city pride! Thanks for the support GM!

  • Red Meat

    Big oil hates the gays already anyways.

  • Macmantoo

    @EvonCook: Either or, same difference.

  • David Stewart

    Cute ad. Hope that they run this in Canada.

  • DouggSeven

    So glad I only buy GM. Can’t wait till the Cadillac ATS comes out…so to speak. I know Michael Moore would have a fit over this, but I blame President Reagan over GM for Flint’s miseries.
